Craig Alan Edwards

From a 2010 interview with Craig Alan Edwards in

I was born in Orange County, CA, but grew up in Philadelphia, and now live in New York City.

I did not go to a formal acting training program/school. I was mentored by a teacher/director in Boston, Vernon F. Blackman. Over my career, I’ve had formal training from studios, classes, workshops- and of course- professional productions.

Do I prefer stage, TV, or film? I was trained for the stage and love it! But I’ve also fallen in love with film, and even TV, which is producing some real good work these days, especially on the cable channels. I enjoy the unique and wonderful acting challenges inherent in the various media forms, but still believe stage training is the best all around preparation for any acting form.

My career highlight? I have to say it’s my play, my one man show The Man in Room 306, about Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.. When I performed it in Memphis (where the play is set, at the Lorraine Motel on April 3, 1968). There is no richer experience than writing and performing your own work when you really, deeply feel the material.
