C Gerod Harris
Born and bred in Los Angeles, California Gerod is a multi-faceted performer/academic. He attended Hollywood Performing Arts High School where he trained in dance, singing and acting.
Upon graduating from the University of Southern California (USC) with a BA in Psychology Gerod juggled teaching languages and humanities with small roles in daytime soap operas, The Young and the Restless, Days of Our Lives, and Santa Barbara.
His desire to hone his craft and expand his horizons motivated Gerod to audition for and gain acceptance into the London Academy of Music and Drama Art (LAMDA) where he earned a degree in Classical Acting.
Upon graduating he was immediately cast in the European tour of Carmen Jones and hasn’t looked back. He has featured in several West End musicals, the most recent being as Ed in Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber’s “Whistle Down the Wind” at the Palace Theatre.
Feature films were not far behind and he has the great pleasure of acting alongside Debra Messing in “The Wedding Date”, Gwyneth Paltrow in “Proof” and Jean-Claude Van Damme in “Until Death”.
Gerod has also enjoyed some music chart success with the release of several singles, the most successful being the co-written, “Headaches and Heartaches”.
In the last several years Gerod now manages and performs in the singing group, Emperors Of Soul. The Emperors Of Soul were semi-finalists in the BBC1 TV programme, Eurovision:Your Country Needs You in which they were mentored by Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber.
