Frank Collison

JUDGE

Frank Collison appeared at the age of four months in the role of a baby at a tent theatre in Granville, Ohio. He briefly flirted with the idea of becoming an archaeologist but after seeing his father in The Diary of Anne Frank, he decided he wanted to be an actor. He trained at the American Conservatory Theatre and then went on to earn an MFA in acting at UC San Diego. Appearing in over 150 stage productions, Frank has worked Off-Broadway, in regional theatre and is a founding member of Pacific Resident Theatre in Venice, CA.

For the last 15 years Frank and his wife, Laura Gardner have been guest artists at the Valdez Theatre Conference in Alaska. Frank funds his theatre habit by working in film, television, and voice-over. Most recently, Frank guest starred on Young Sheldon. He is sometimes approached by people on the street who ask, “What have I seen you in?” It’s usually O Brother, Where Art Thou?, Twin Peaks or Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman. www.frankcollison.com
