American actor and playwright Thomas Rhett Kee was born in Rockford IL. His love for acting began in high school and continued in college at Eastern Illinois University. He ultimately received an M.F.A. in Acting from Brandies University. His first paid acting job was as a part of a renegade troupe of improv artists attached to the Sterling Renaissance Faire. His first film role was in the classic “School Ties” (1992). After college Tom moved Los Angeles where he appeared in theatre as well as on “Days of Our Lives.” He returned to the East Coast in the late 90’s and worked extensively as an Equity actor as well as in commercials and industrial films. He also appeared a number of times on All My Children and As The World Turns during this period as well as completing “Children of the Struggle” (1999) and “The Reawakening” (2004).
