About Me

A physical actor with a strong on-screen presence, Kendrick has played a variety of memorable roles in both film and theatre productions, as well as represented dozens of international brands in televised advertisements.

Kendrick realized one of his lifelong dreams when he played the role of Romeo in a 2010 production of  Romeo and Juliet. In 2013, he was featured in the apocalyptic thriller Snowpiercer (directed by Joon-ho Bong). His next film appearance will be in the 2016 blockbuster Unlocked (directed by Michael Apted).

Driven by the need to discover a defining purpose in his life, Kendrick left his home country of Canada in the early 2000s to travel abroad. In the past 15 years, he has lived in Beijing, London, and Prague. He has a keen interest in martial arts and is a trained stage combatant (BADC). His love of learning has facilitated in the acquisition of a unique skill-set, which includes building computer systems, falconry, firearms, and web design. Currently, Kendrick is studying French.
