|Myke Holmes Gallery|
The first time Myke made national television, no one knew it was him. He was in a full-body costume portraying a bird, a Seahawk to be exact. He was “Sammy C. Hawk,” his university’s mascot, in the 2003 NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament. They lost in the first round, but hey, Myke finally got on TV. The second time was much like the first. Myke was, once again, in a full-body bird suit playing a mascot, except this time he was a Raven. This began his TV & Film career in 2004 with his first role as the Ravens’ Mascot on The CW’s One Tree Hill. Yet again, no one knew it was him.
Since then, this character actor has played nerds, nuts, and ne'er-do-wells in shows such as FOX's Sleepy Hollow, CBS's Under the Dome, NBC's Constantine, ABC's Secrets & Lies, Lifetime's Drop Dead Diva, and NBC's Revolution. Myke can also be seen in films such as The Ultimate Life, The Longest Ride, National Geographic's Killing Lincoln, and a few other secret projects yet to come out. Myke received his MFA in Acting from Northern Illinois University where he studied under master acting teacher Kathryn Gately who, herself, studied with Sanford Meisner.
Myke also studied at the world famous Moscow Art Theatre in Russia. He earned his BA in Theatre from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington. As a professional actor, Myke has worked in Russia, Romania, New York, Los Angeles, and all over the southest where he currently resides. He has had the privilege to work with notables such as Olympia Dukakis, Katie Sagal, John Schneider, Ryan Phillippe, Bryan Greenberg, and many others. He has also been on stage with Penn & Teller at the Rio Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. Myke now teaches Acting and Improvisation at UNCW. He loves salt & vinegar chips, Netflix, and fantasy football. He is also a gifted speler.
