DARREN CAIN is an American actor whose television, commercial, and film work spans across broadcast, digital, and streaming platforms. Currently signed to BYSB Talent Agency, Cain stars as Kilo in the independent feature film, Prodigal (Clifton Powell, Scarface), and is featured as a supporting lead in the upcoming TV One true crime film, In Broad Daylight (Shad Bow Wow Moss, Curtis Hamilton).
Born in Silver Spring, Maryland, a suburb of Washington, D.C., and raised in Gwinnett County, Georgia, Cain quickly developed the keen ability to nurture his talents through involvements in local youth organizations, theater and performing arts, and high school broadcast journalism.
Following his acceptance into Perimeter College at Georgia State University’s College of Business, Cain became involved in a range of university-sponsored theater and performing arts programs. Proving to be more fulfilling and beneficial to his long-term career aspirations, Cain made the heartfelt decision to forgo the remainder of his degree program, in pursuit of promising opportunities in entertainment.
Inspired by the commercial success of Will Smith, while mentored by Jesse Malinowski, CEO / founder of Get Scene, Cain was afforded an exclusive, all-access crash course into the business of entertainment.
Refocusing his energy on discovering his innate artistic potential through scene study, instrumental, emotional and improvisational exercises, and researching various acting techniques, Cain quickly identified with The Chubbuck Technique, as instructed by Tasha Smith / TSAW.
With appearances on BET’s The Quad, Investigation Discovery and TV One Networks, Darren Cain is the Now and Next Entertainer to watch.
