Tyler Parks is an American actor, singer-songwriter, and dancer best known for his roles on Westworld (HBO), Dear White People (Netflix), All American (CW), and the critically-acclaimed film The Perfect Sacrifice.
At the early age of 5, Tyler showed an affinity for dancing and playing make-believe so his mother and father enrolled him in local dance classes. After years of performing and competing with a top-ranking competition studio, Tyler experienced his first acting opportunity. Throughout his teenage years he appeared in theater productions, independent films, and regional commercials.
In 2010, Tyler took the leap and moved to Los Angeles. Soon after, he landed national commercials like Old Navy and Nissan; performed with Mary J Blige and Kelly Clarkson; choreographed for Sebastian and Kat Graham; and was featured in Glee, HairsprayLIVE, and NCIS.
When it comes to Tyler’s passion for music… he has toured throughout the U.S. with his first solo project REHAB, had a song featured on Major Crimes (TNT), and held a 6 month residency in San Diego.
In the height of the 2020 pandemic, he joined forces with director Tiffany Littlejohn (The Perfect Sacrifice) to create, produce, and star in the award-winning web series Indemnity: The Rabbit Hole.
Recently, Tyler held a recurring role in seasons 4 and 5 of the hit CW show All American, and is currently promoting his leading role in the feature film Twisted Vines with co-star Vivica A. Fox. He is also a touring judge for the national dance competition STARPOWER, and is working on a new music project.
Tyler created the course “The Triple Threat” aka The Workshop at The Lee Strasberg Theatre & Film Institute as a way to help actors gain the confidence and comfort to utilize the three disciplines (movement, voice, and acting) while working on film productions that have a more musical aspect.
