Biography: Michael Beardsley was born March 5th 1976 in Santa Cruz, California. He graduated from San Lorenzo Valley High School in 1994 and went on to achieve a Bachelor of Arts degree from UC Santa Cruz. Up until his first year of collage, Michael didn't know what he wanted to do with his life. Aside from a sixth grade production of Hamlet (in which he played Horatio) and some very amateur videos in high school, Michael had never ventured into the world of acting. Somewhere deep inside Michael's shy persona lurked a performer that wanted to stand out. While attending UCSC, Michael discovered something he wanted to do for the rest of his life: act. The first introductory acting class was taken as an experiment more than anything, but after he took one class, Michael had to take more. In the following four years, he appeared in several of the school's productions, while also working behind the scenes as prop master for many of UCSC's most elaborate shows. He was also captured on film for the first time when he was cast in two student films. By the time he graduated, he knew what he wanted to do. In October 1998, about four months after graduation, he moved to Los Angeles.
