Born in a small rural area of Texas, Parrish Randall was smitten with a love for film at an early age when he realized the “magic of celluloid cinema” while watching the old late, late shows. By the time he was 10, with a Super 8mm film camera in hand and a cast of his friends, Parrish Randall had produced his first 12 minute short horror “epic”, a blatant rip off of H.G. Lewis’ “Blood Feast”…complete with karo syrup and red food coloring that stained everything in frame! Parrish met and married his high school sweetheart and placed to the side his aspirations for film work for the next several years, listening to people who would state to him “you can’t do film…”. Finally in 2000, after attending Film and TV training at TSTC Waco, Parrish set out to pursue his ambitions.
Landing bit parts and extra gigs on shows/films like “Walker Texas Ranger”, “LAX”, “Eye For An Eye”, “The Anarchist’s Cookbook”, he learned the business from seasoned performers, honed his craft and made valuable contacts while he worked on films sets across Texas. In 2005 Parrish landed the lead role of bad guy Blythe Remington in “The Quick and the Undead”, shot in California and Texas, the film gained release by Anchor Bay Entertainment and premiered at Manns Theatre in Hollywood. “That film gave me a career and I am forever thankful for the character of Blythe” says Parrish in numerous interviews and to fans of the film, now in worldwide release.
Parrish’s career did began to move forward at a nice and steady pace after “Q&U”, with 19 films to his credit and still rolling. Says Parrish in a recent radio interview, “I am a lucky guy to have the opportunity to do this thing I love to do, make it my career and have the genre fans that I have. Creating characters from the written page, breathing life into them and entertaining the viewer is the most rewarding thing for me. There is nothing I’d rather do. I love it.
