Biography

Longtime actor, singer, director, and acting coach Deke Anderson developed his early fondness for sports through his participation in high school and college football. This experience led Anderson to pursue to athletics and eventually found the largest bodybuilding gym in northern Nevada. Anderson's commitment to physical conditioning and growing interest in performance attracted the attention of Hollywood, and starting in 1983 he earned several small roles in independent features including "Hardbodies," "American Drive-In," and "Sword Of Heaven." This exposure won Anderson the chance to co-star with Josh Brolin in the 1987 television movie "Private Eye." He followed this with guest-starring and recurring roles in television series "Webster," the ever-popular "Cheers," and top daytime dramas "General Hospital" and "Days of Our Lives." During this period, Anderson cultivated his love of music by studying voice and performing opera at Reno's historical Pioneer Theater Auditorium. Relocating to Los Angeles, Anderson committed to film and television, appearing in the 1995 production of Sam Raimi's "Army of Darkness," while also taking a first assistant director position and acting role in "Felony." Anderson then began coaching acting and opened his own studio successfully. In 2007, he returned to the small screen in "Friday Night Lights" and "The Lying Game" in 2010. Relocating his acting studio to Reno, Nevada, Anderson continued his involvement with Hollywood appearing in the 2011 feature "Green Lantern."
