A native of Philadelphia, actor, singer, producer, and director Clayton Prince knew early on that entertainment was his calling.

By twelve years old, Clayton had already secured professional acting jobs at the local repertory theatre where he honed his chops and learned his skills.

By the time he reached his teens, Clayton recognized acting as his passion and enrolled in the High School for the Creative and Performing Arts as a drama major. At 17, Clayton was cast in Boston's local production of the play American Passion opposite a then 17-year-old Robert Downey Jr.
