UK born David W Ross is a multi-talented award winning actor, writer, musician, director and producer whose experience spans over two decades in the international entertainment world.
David first entered the public eye as a teen idol from British boy-band sensation Bad Boys, Inc.: the group released one self-titled album, which spawned five hit singles, including the Top 10 smash, “More to this World.”
David is better known to American moviegoers as a featured star of the acclaimed 2006 Sundance Film Festival double winner, “Quinceañera” which picked up both the Fest’s Grand Jury Prize and Audience Award, a 2007 Spirit Award, a GLAAD Media Award, the Humanitas Award and was featured at the 2006 Berlin Film Festival.
As a screenwriter and producer his first feature film “I Do“ tackled the controversial and timely issue of marriage inequality in America. Ross crowd-funded the film, raising over $90,000 on Kickstarter and Indiegogo, which went on to win 13 awards at over 35 film festivals worldwide in 2012/13 including Palm Spring’s International’s Best of the Fest. The timing couldn’t have been more perfect for the romantic drama, starring Jamie-Lynn Sigler and Alicia Witt with Ross as the lead, as it opened theatrically in North America the same month The Defense Of Marriage Act (DOMA) was ruled unconstitutional by The Supreme Court.
The film was later released in N. America, Australia, Germany and the UK on iTunes, Netflix, VoD and DVD.
David personally picked up two Rising Star Awards for his work as an actor in “I Do” (Philadelphia QFest & Miami GLFF). He was also the recipient of the Jack Law Award at the Honolulu Rainbow Film Festival for his work as an advocate for marriage equality. “I Do” also won him Best Screenplay at the San Diego LGBT Film Festival.
Recently David has been an associate producer on the independent documentary “Limited Partnership” which picked up 19 festival awards, and premiered on Independent Lens on PBS. The film is also nominated for the 2016 GLAAD awards.
David continues to work as a writer, actor and producer in Los Angeles. His latest project is Slatable™, an app that simplifies the self tape process for actors, casting and film makers.
