Rhodes has enjoyed a steady growth in the movie industry since he made his debut in 2012 and he has not rested on his oars; he has been churning out movies that have gotten the world talking.

The Beginning of Trevante’s Adventure in Hollywood

Born on the 10th of February 1990 in Ponchatoula, Louisiana, Trevante Nemour Rhodes did not want to be an actor initially; he wanted to be an athlete. In fact, while studying at Little Elm High School, Rhodes began to play football as a running back. He even played with Cole Beasley who is now a professional player with the Dallas Cowboys.

However, his dream of playing football was dashed when he sustained an ACL injury. He later won an athletic scholarship to the University of Texas for track and field and competed for the school from 2008 to 2012.

When he eventually graduated, Trevante Rhodes decided he wanted to become an actor so he moved to Los Angeles to achieve this dream. Luckily for him, he immediately started landing minor roles in projects like Joseph and Shawn and Gang Related. In 2015, he started getting some attention when he starred as Ramsey Walters in If Loving You Is Wrong. That same year, he portrayed George in The Night Is Young, a comedy movie.
