Meet the Panelist - Troy Pryor

Troy Osborne Pryor is an actor, writer, producer, and director from Chicago, IL. He also spent a great deal of his childhood in Atlanta, GA, giving him a mixture of Chicago style and southern hospitality. In his early years, Pryor was very active in the church and competitive sports which led him to be a superior athlete and scholar at the University of Illinois. Several injuries and a chance meeting with Tyler Perry clarified his priorities and led him back to performing.

In addition to performing on stage, on camera and voiceover, Troy owns and runs a production company focusing on film and commercial, founded Creative Cypher, a network of over 70 independent content creators and launches a new station this fall. As a proud member of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. and the youngest elected Board member for SAG-AFTRA Chicago his goal is to lead and always inspire the world. Years of athletics taught him that the most powerful muscle is the mind and he strives daily to reach his full potential.
