After serving in South Korea as a Broadcast Journalist in the United States Air Force, Minnesota-native Roger Wayne earned an acting scholarship and graduated with honors in Minneapolis, MN. He began performing on the stage doing Shakespeare and contemporary plays as a teenager before joining the military, which led to the beginning of his career in the Twin Cities, in stage productions, short films, and commercials, and studying acting at the prestigious Guthrie Theater. In 2012, Wayne moved to New York City, where he now resides, working in Film, TV, Theater, & Voice, which in particular has been a tremendous staple in his career, as voice work has been a passion for over 20 years. That passion led to roles on stage, and eventually the world of film.
Roger received awards for his work as early as his service days, where he was praised for his creativity in the news stories and commercials he produced for the military, while serving at Osan Air Base, in South Korea.
In transferring to University he received an acting scholarship by recommendation for outstanding performances on stage.
Recently his audiobook, "The Subtle Art of not Giving A F*ck," by Author Mark Manson, received an award for the best audiobook of 2017, in its category of self-development, as the audible editors acknowledged his poignant, down-to-earth, and at times hilarious delivery of the author's words.
For Television he has worked on numerous shows, most notably co-star roles on CBS’s “God Friended Me,” HBO's "Show Me A Hero," Netflix/ Marvel's "Luke Cage," and recurring roles on ABC's "Quantico," and NBC's "The Blacklist."
