James WDL Mercer II (any pronouns, just don't be shady)

is an American expert actor, singer, writer, teaching artist and visual storyteller of Afro-Carolinian descent from Philadelphia, PA.

Described as a youthful old soul, James has a thirst for knowledge fueled by a curiosity of the human condition, often looking to be an illumination in the darkest places most are afraid to venture.

James is an associate artist with the African American Shakespeare Company in San Francisco, ensemble member with Theater Unspeakable in Chicago, 
and has studied with Lee Edward Colston II (PTMI/PTAI 2015), School at Steppenwolf (2018), the New York Film Academy,

and has an MFA from American Conservatory Theater (2022).
