Ricco Ross

AfroComicCon welcomes renowned actor and producer, Ricco Ross as one of the virtual convention’s Special Guests!

Ross is a seasoned actor with a plethora of titles under his belt, from his iconic performance in the movie Aliens to his role as Pastor Gilfield in P-Valley. He started his career as an extra on The Young and The Restless and swiftly climbed his way up into a dazzling array of performances. 

Never one to rest on his laurels, Ross grabbed every opportunity he could to grow and expand. He modeled for 4 years in France, stormed the London theater scene, produced his own music, and was even offered a pro basketball contract in Europe! 

However, the urge to make his mark in American TV and film never dimmed, so he came back to the US and added more to his already impressive resume. Fans may remember him from such titles as Mission ImpossibleThe PracticeHighlanderBabylon 5Beverly Hills 90210HayabusaJAGE.R., and A Husband For Christmas, where he played the title role. 

These days, Ross isn’t slowing down a bit, even as he plays father to 5 children and loving husband to his wife, Julie. He’s currently CEO of “Something Positive Productions” and is a second term SAG/AFTRA board member. As a writer, actor, and producer, he feels that some of his best work is still yet to come.
