A Jazzman’s Blues Actor Joshua Boone Wiki | Bio
Joshua Boone (born 1988) is a 34-year-old talented actor and theater artist who has been performing since the age of 9. In his acting journey, he has seen the ups and downs of life, but he never gave up.
Broadway has played an essential role in Joshua’s life; that’s why he is eternally grateful for the experience, and because of this, Director Tyler Perry gave him the chance to perform in the Netflix film “A Jazzman’s Blues,” in which Boone performed the role of “Bayou,” However, he had no intention of auditioning for the role, let’s look at how he landed up in this life-changing role.
Early Life, Parents & Theater
Joshua Boone was born in 1988 to his mother, Sherrie Boone, in Tidewater, Virginia; while growing up, at the age of 9, Boone became interested in acting when he was given a chance to portray the part of Davy Crockett in a summer school arts program, By the time he entered high school, acting becomes his passion, and he wanted to do every time, but Bonne parents wanted to put him in business, law or medicine.
The acting was the thing that actually changed Boone’s life and made it better; he had loved performing for as long as he can remember and wanted a career out of it, but to get that college was the first step, but he didn’t want to study acting in college, he had no plans of studying anything at all.
For Boone, college was just a “housing and a meal plan” he wanted to enroll in a college that was located in Los Angeles, where booking tons of acting gigs just happened naturally, planning on going for academic probation, where for the first year he would not study anything and try to get into movies, but things changed when he didn’t receive enough financial aid to go to school out of state. He went through his backup plan: attending Virginia Commonwealth University School of the Arts for a year, reapplying to L.A. schools, and final step movies.
In 2006, Boone enrolled in the VCU School of Business, where he majored in business, but During his first year at VCU, he was dying to act; he missed the stage so badly that he ended up auditioning for the musical “Smokey Joe’s Cafe” and surprisingly got the lead in TheatreVCU’s and his show-stopping performance convinced his parents that he should change his major and pursue his dream of becoming an actor.
Being a nontheater student getting a lead was a big deal, Broadway veteran Patti D’Beck, director and choreographer at the VCU Department of Theatre, had all praises for Joshua Boone; she was so impressed by how he had just entered the room and changed the whole dynamics of it, his acting was transparent inside and outside in a beautiful way, Patti was intrigued by Boone that she even went to hear him sing at the church choir.
After his first musical, he was ready to take on Hollywood, but his mother, Sherrie Boone, convinced him to stay in school; she allowed him to change his major and move wherever he wanted, but only after he graduated. By the time he was in his second year, Boone had begun to work hard and actually studied for his classes. As soon as he finished college, this talented actor landed his first ever on-screen role.
