Michael Caden knew at a very young age that he was passionate about acting and that it gave him immense joy. At the age of six, Michael started acting and the enjoyment of performing on stage and seeing people respond positively to his work was a driving force in his decision to become an actor and ultimately move from his hometown of Denver, Colorado to Los Angeles. Knowing that like any other art form, acting deserved just as much study, Michael understood that he would have to commit himself to intense learning of the craft and develop skills that would enable him to be successful in portraying believable characters. In his hometown of Denver, Michael took acting classes at McFarland Entertainment. Michael then went on to do a number of commercials before deciding it was time for him to make the move to Los Angeles to further his career and his education.
Upon arriving in Los Angeles, Michael has dedicated himself to refine his craft by training at the Young Actor's Space, Margie Haber Studios, The Groundlings and The Beverly Hills Playhouse. Michael has had the opportunity to train with many well respected acting coaches and working actors such as Carol Locatell (The Family Stone), Melora Hardin (The Office, 17 Again), Mitch Silpa (Bridesmaids) and Chick Vennera (The Milagro Beanfield War). Michael currently trains with Jamison Haase (Castle, Prison Break) at L.A. On-Camera Training Center in their advanced on camera drama course.
Michael is easy to work with and is a joy to be around on set. Michael recently filmed, Fire City: The Interpreter of Signs. Fire City, directed by Academy Award winning character effects creator, Tom Woodruff Jr. Michael works primarily out of Los Angeles, CA but is represented in Albuquerque, New Mexico by Carissa Mitchell of the Mitchell & Presley Talent Group and in the Pacific Northwest by Mitchell Artists Management.
Michael's passion, commitment and work ethic are best reflected by Oprah Winfrey's assessment that, "I've come to believe that each of us has a personal calling that's as unique as a fingerprint. The best way to succeed is to discover what you love and then find a way to offer it to others in the form of service, working hard, and also allowing the energy of the universe to lead you.
