Biography

Not one to mug for the camera or pursue stardom to feed his ego, actor Henry Simmons has thanked his parents for a solid upbringing-they taught him that hard work and doing his best are the keys to success and thanks to this advice, the actor has become a household name. Born and raised in idyllic Stamford, Connecticut into a middle class home-dad was an IRS officer, mom was a teacher-Simmons attended Franklin Pierce College where he majored in business and flirted with acting. After graduation, he was tapped by a prestigious Connecticut-based Fortune 500 company, but he soon found himself sneaking into Manhattan for auditions. Eventually, Simmons made his first on-screen appearance in "Above the Rim" (1994), a low-budget sports drama about basketball and gangsters, and from there Simmons' career took off.
