DeMarcus Bumpers


When did it all start?

Mr. Bumpers went with a friend to an audition as support. While in waiting room he heard another actor reciting lines and stated “he would not have said it like that” prompting the actor to hand DeMarcus the script where he proceeded to recite the lines catching the attention of producer and casting director that was passing by the waiting room. Bumpers was approached about auditioning and was asked three times which the first two times he was reluctant about doing so and he was convinced on third attempt to audition. He booked the role and the rest is history from there causing him not to look back. Lydia Harris helped navigate his career and placed him in front of the right people to really get started in the business.
