Michael Flynn
The Actors Workshop
Salt Lake City801.362.9811michael@theactorsworkshop.bizMichael’s foray into acting began when he was a high school student in the Washington D.C. area. Acting was actually his second choice. Playing second base for the New York Yankees was his first. But, as a freshman in high school he failed to make the football, basketball and baseball teams.

So, he tried out for a play. Bernardine. He got the part of Mack and found that acting was something at which he could compete.

When he graduated from Brigham Young University he and an acting cohort moved to the San Jose, CA area and started a small theater in the round. The Santa Clara Arena Theater.

Michael then returned to Utah where he continued his theater work. He and Scott Anderson founded Starlite Summer Theater. During its short life it featured such shows as The King and I, West Side Story, The Music Man, A Chorus Line and 1776. It was here in Utah that he started acting in film. His first film was Savannah Smiles, followed closely by Footloose.

Since then he has focused on film, appearing in over 100 film and television projects. Most notably: Halloween Town High, The Best Two Years, The Core II, Blank Slate, The Dance, Home of Our Own, Desperate Hours, Matlock, Moonlighting, Touched by an Angel, Everwood, Promised Land, Walker Texas Ranger, Crossroads, The Man with Three Wives, Bitter Markings, Unforgiveable, The President’s Child, Evil in Clear River, The Executioner’s Song, Stranger on My Land, A Hobo’s Christmas, A More Perfect Union, Nothing Lasts Forever, Friends for Life, Heber Holiday, The Last Sin Eater, Edge of America, Halloween 4, and many others.
