Damien Dante Wayans Biography
Birthday: April 15, 1980 (Aries)
Born In: New York City, New York
Damien Dante Wayans is a popular American actor, screen writer, producer and director of African origin. It is not an exaggeration to say that art and performance runs in his blood, as he belongs to the Wayans family who, for two generations, have been in the field of acting. In fact, a majority of his body of work either by way of acting, script writing, directing or producing has been in projects that involved his uncle, Damon Wayans Sr., prominent examples of which include the movie, ‘Major Payne’ and sitcom, ‘My Wife and Kids’. He made his movie debut at the age of seven, where he got to rub shoulders with the best and brightest African American artists of that time. While he did get his share of recognition being in the spotlight, he received a lot more success working behind the scenes. He has, to his credit, more than a dozen projects (both film and TV shows) where he was either the director, writer and/or producer.
