Young and full of energy, Tequan (Tuh-kwon) Richmond has big plans going into a television and film career.
It has been only a few years since this Burlington, North Carolina native arrived in Los Angeles and he has already begun taking Hollywood by storm. He has appeared in a national Spalding basketball commercial with Boston Celtic’s Paul Pierce, as well as national commercials for Verizon Wireless, Nintendo DS, and Brand Jordan. There are a couple of magazine ads in which you’ll find Tequan; one being Scott’s Turfbuilder lawn fertilizer in magazines such as Sports Illustrated, Reader’s Digest, Newsweek, and National Geographic as well as a national Nestle print ad.
Tequan has been one of six hosts for kids’ TV shows on the Toon Disney Channel and has had guest-starring roles on the CBS show Cold Case, ER, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, Madtv, The Shield and Strong Medicine. Tequan also appeared as “Ray Charles, Jr. (9-10 yrs.)” in “Ray,” the much-anticipated musical biographical drama of American legend Ray Charles.
Tequan landed his first pilot for CBS a very short time after arriving in Los Angeles. He starred in an Aaron Spelling Production entitled “The Law and Mr. Lee” playing the grandson (Andre Lee) to Danny Glover (Henry Lee). Tequan’s greatest career accomplishment has been playing the role of “Drew Rock” as a series regular in the hit television comedy “Everybody Hates Chris,” as in Rock. Chris Rock narrates and produces this hilarious half-hour show on the CW Network. The show also stars Tichina Arnold (Martin, One on One) and Terry Crews (The Longest Yard and White Chicks).
