Kendall Ryan Sanders, a 16 year-old veteran child actor, is sneaking through the gates of Hollywood. If you don’t know him, you haven’t been watching enough television and film. Sanders most prominent guest star appearances to date include Revolution, Navy NCIS, Big Love, Criminal Minds, Nip/Tuck, HBO's 12 Miles of Bad Road, and Passions.

Sanders’ career ignited in his hometown of Atlanta, where he went through an acting competition brought about by Actors, Models, & Talent for Christ (AMTC). At the tender age of seven, he took the gold, winning the Overall Main Child Actor award. The Sanders family then headed for Los Angeles to pursue Kendall’s acting career, where he now resides part-time. Kendall has two siblings of which he is the youngest.

The talented actor is primarily known for his role as Tony Myers on Nickelodeon’s comedy TV show Every Witch Way. He is also the voice of Rod Best in Disney’s movie The Odd Life of Timothy Green, and was a featured voice in Warner Bros’ animated film The Ant Bully. He has perfected his talent in acting with acting coach Dennis Lavalle, whose motto states, “The harder you work, the luckier you get!” And Kendall persists on pounding the Hollywood pavement to the top.

In my interview with Kendall he revealed his favorite project so far has been Every Witch Way because he enjoyed the union he shared with his cast members. He loves television for the very reason it allows him to create a bond with his cast - almost like family.

When asked who his current influencers are Kendall stated, “The actors I look up to are Liam Neeson and Will Smith. I aspire to be like Will Smith for his ability to play roles in both the comedy and drama genres." He loves both genres, but if he had to stick to one it would certainly be comedy.

Sanders also shared his celebrity crush to be Ms. Ariana Grande!

You can catch Kendall Sanders’ recent guest star role on Disney’s I Didn’t Do It airing June 2014. He is also set to play in another feature film Normal Like Me alongside actor Kevin Sorbow.
