WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
“I first met Myles my freshman year of college he, a junior, was cast as Benvolio in Romeo and Juliet. He was one the first people who would say, "Its not show business, it's BUSINESS SHOW." Much respect on all your endeavors my friend.”
"The brilliance of your artistry is like no other."
Myles Grier is a film, television and stage actor of Nigerian descent with a diverse and eclectic background spanning the arts. Hailing from Stone Mountain, Georgia, Myles began acting on stage at age 11 and was discovered at age 13 by one of Atlanta’s top talent agents, beginning his professional journey.
Since relocating to Los Angeles in 2012, Myles has broadened his horizons with a guest star appearance on FOX's Lethal Weapon along with other primetime television appearances, including Freeform's The Fosters, NBC's Game of Silence, ABC's Agent Carter, NBC's Aquarius, and more. After the untimely death of his father in 2017, Myles took a hiatus from acting to be with family in Atlanta. Once he returned to Los Angeles, Myles focused on honing his executive and creative skillset, learning the business of entertainment while personal and executive assisting Academy Award nominated producer Lee Daniels day-to-day in 2018. Returning as an actor, his debut short film 'Remember To Breathe In The Dark' premiered early 2020 and quickly made an inspirational impact, getting licensed domestically and entered the film festival circuit, winning Grier a Best Male Performance Award at the 2020 Studio 7 International Film Festival overseas in the UK and the Denzel Washington Award at the 2021 HYP Film Festival for his vulnerable performance in what he calls his ‘therapeutic’ film he also penned, directed and produced.
Recently, Grier was a lead of an upcoming mental illness feature, Good Side of Bad, an adaption of the book of the same title, and he was part of the creative collective who broke over 1 billion press impressions and trended #2 on Twitter, boosting the notoriety of the now popular social audio app 'Clubhouse' with their innovative theatrical experience of 'The Lion King: The Musical’, in which he produced and led as the voice of Young and Adult Simba. Commercially, he has shared the screen in national commercials with A-list talent such as Morgan Freeman, and in 2022, you might've caught him in Sam’s Club’s first Super Bowl commercial with Kevin Hart.
Grier is represented by David Arrigotti at Daniel Hoff Agency, and Sherry Kayne at Moxie Artists Management. BFA Theater Performance degree from Valdosta State University.

'Remember To Breathe In The Dark' was inspired by personal experiences, but the story and struggle is far from what I actually went through. It's very intentional with how personal it feels, like you're peeking into the privacy of a Young man in a dark place. I dedicated this piece to my late father, to anyone who has lost a parent or loved one and those with speech impediments. This process became sort of like therapy for me, having a space to express my internal feelings about parental death. I hope this film remind's someone in any dark moment, to focus on the light.
