Introspective. Loquacious. Giving. Insightful. Passionate. Honest. Transparent. Artist. W.Ellington Felton long been described as a renaissance man and a ranter of his own thoughts, but if you talk to him or see him perform, it may all makes sense. He is a DC native and son of jazz pianist Hilton C. Felton Jr., and heavily influenced by his surroundings. Growing up in Washington, DC W.Ellington was introduced to the Fine Arts early on. Equipped at The School Without Walls with a backpack of notebooks filled with poems and rhymes, he hit the pavement running quickly making a name for himself on BET’s “Teen Summit”. He went on to study theatre at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh. After returning from college he went on to teach and act for Arena Stage’s “Living Stage Theatre Company” while pursuing his music career. In 2000 he formed the Hip Hop Soul Group the “The Crossrhodes” with R&B Crooner Raheem Devaughn. He has collaborated and shared the stage with artist like Chris Rock, Malcolm Jamal Warner, Meshell N’Degeocelo, Dionne Farris, Eric Roberson, Common, Dave Chapelle and many more. Still a DC Resident and Single Father he has taught Oratory and Acting part-time for Ford’s Theatre’s Education Department . With a featured role in the film “Love Dot Com” on Netflix this is just another reminder that passion, training and hard work pays off.
I enjoy the process of creating art. Breathing life into the words of Classic and Modern Writers is the Super Power of Actors. But... "With Great Powers Comes Great Responsibility.."
I love teaching acting but i love teaching the process of acting more.
