New Zealand-American Kelvin Taylor is a SAG-AFTRA and Equity New Zealand Actor. His most recent work includes the upcoming Take Waititi produced Paramount + remake of Time Bandits. He recently starred in South Indian, Australian co-produced film Gen-Z, introducing him into the Bollywood-Indian Film Market. Kelvin's next project will be co-starring alongside Jeremy Piven in Fight For Your Life by acclaimed Australian director Luke Sparke.

Kelvin's journey began with a walk-in at Pacific Renaissance studios and was put through Stunt Bootcamp for the hit Television Series Spartacus by STARZ as they were seeking African Talent in New Zealand. Playing George Kerr in the International Emmy Nominated film The Golden Hour, which reaffirmed his dreams. His appearances are electing from Ash Vs. Evil Dead, The Shannara Chronicles, multiple appearances maintaining relationships with Adult Swim / Cartoon Network, to Music Video's including Post Malone's Goodbyes to Reality TV with Warner Brother's international Come Dine With Me.

This multi-hyphenated talent can shifts seamlessly from dramatic to comedic roles, becoming a personality, presenter, YouTuber, dancer to working Stuntman in the blink of an Eye. Training with top acting coaches in Asia-Pacific to LA with Michael Saccente (Karl Urban & Anthony Starr), Miranda Harcourt (Nicole Kidman, Thomasin McKenzie), Stunt Training with Dayna Grant (Madmax Fury Road, Wonder Woman 1984) and more, this performance enigma is diverse in every sense of the word applied. Kelvins career beginnings in entertainment branched from modeling in Virginia Beach for Pharrell Williams clothing line Billionaire Boys Club to working as a music events promoter with talents such as Big Sean, Mike Posner, Common, LMFAO, Pusha T, Chris Brown. Today, this Virginia Native has transcended himself as a Asia-Pacific talent asset for over the last 15 years and he's only begun to bring his unsuspecting journey and vehicle down under onto the World Stage and Hollywood.
