Actor/Writer Donald Kingston was born in Georgetown, Guyana S.A. and raised in Harlem, NY. Donald studied acting at the Herbert Berghof Studio located in Greenwich Village in New York City. Donald has always taken the road less travelled as evidenced by his eclectic performance resume. Whether tackling The Classical Theatre of Harlem’s interpretation of “Marat Sade” or Aixa Kendrick’s “Black Circus,” Donald seeks roles which live on the edge of defined societal “norms.”
Donald also gravitates toward projects spotlighting cultural diversity as in “Men’s Affair“, directed by Algerian director Amine Kaise, which has screened at the Cairo Film Festival, the Florida International Film Festival and the New Filmmaker’s Film Festival.
Donald’s foray into film writing was “BonJour Felicity“, the latest venture of Spanish filmmaker Manuel Lopez T, which he co-wrote. “BonJour Felicity” has been screened at the Zinebi 53 – Bilbao Film Festival and the Regensburg Short Film Festival. In addition to writing for the big screen, Donald has also written and performed his one man show entitled “The F Train” – based on his first book of poetry of the same name – to rave reviews.
Keep a watchful eye for the next project from this multi-talented, versatile performer.
