Victor Lawrence Love whose namesake is the former screen idol, Victor Mature, graduated from the University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee in the Professional Theatre Training Program. Love appeared in many major roles, graduated with an MFA and an equity card and was invited to appear in a production of the Bacchae in Japan. Love relocated to New York upon his return from Japan. He started a theater ensemble with Angela Bassett, Ving Rhames, Eriq LaSalle, Lorraine Toussaint and Wesley Snipes. After an appearance in an Aetna Life commercial that ran during the Super Bowl, Love was tracked down by the casting director of Native Son. In his critically acclaimed portrayal of the pivotal lead character, Bigger Thomas, Love was supported by Matt Dillon, Elizabeth McGovern, Ving Rhames and Oprah Winfrey. That film, along with studying with Ivana Chubbock and his role as the title character in Final Shot: The Hank Gathers Story cemented his reputation as an actor.
Love appeared onstage in every venue from the Cleveland Playhouse to the Kennedy Center to Shakespeare in the Park and Broadway. He portrayed Othello, Brutus, MacBeth and more than 20 other classical roles. He appeared in critically acclaimed television series such as Miami Vice, The West Wing, JAG and 7th Heaven to name a few. The smooth baritone also found considerable success in the world of animation voicing characters in Jonny Quest, Sonic the Hedgehog, and HBO's Spawn. He also worked alongside James Belushi in Gang Related, the last film to star Tupac Shakur. Love is inspired to share his knowledge and love of acting with a new generation of artists. He has partnered with Actors' Innovative Resource as Master Instructor to instruct those who are seeking a professional career on the stage, in celluloid and/or the small screen.
