Dwayne Boyd is an American actor who portrayed a National Guardsman in Season 3 of AMC's The Walking Dead. An interview regarding his character was conducted in which he discusses his experiences on the show.

He is also a producer and director, as well as instructor at Premier Actors' Network (PAN) - which he founded in 2003.

As an actor Dwayne Boyd believes in delivering his true self in every performance. His ability to engage and affect his audiences through acting proves the potential of this rising star. Born and raised in Kansas City, Missouri, Dwayne found his love for acting early in life. After completing high school, he served in the United States Army for seven years. Not long after leaving the Army, he moved to Atlanta, Georgia to pursue his acting career. Boyd's acting skills were first honed in Atlanta-area theater productions, including To Kill A Mockingbird and A Man's World. Boyd has since decided to train other aspiring actors to perfect their crafts by developing the Premier Actor's Network, a group that holds weekly acting classes in Decatur, Georgia.

With over 110 students currently on his roster, Boyd managed to impress accomplished actor, writer and director Robert Townsend with his commitment to give back. Townsend has since allowed Boyd to use rehearsal space at the network offices of the Black Family Channel to accommodate his growing and successful classes. Boyd's commitment to the art of entertainment transcends his skills as just an actor. He has found himself writing, directing and producing short films as well through 34th and Askew Productions company. He has produced works such as Ruthless Company and Wanted: Video Girl. In 2004, he was tapped to produce several episodes of Gory Stories, a children's program on the Black Family Channel. Pursuing dreams as an actor has been a labor of love for Boyd, who works as a barber part-time to cover his living expenses. Still, his talent began to pay off with a starring role as Oscar in the 2005 Screen Gems production 'The Gospel', starring Boris Kodjoe, Idris Elba and Omar Gooding. This film role follows Boyd's work in television, which included appearances in episodes of NBC's Surface, Lifetime's hit shows Army Wives and Drop Dead Diva, Black Family Channel's Playhouse 22 and Meet the Browns.

He can be seen in the upcoming Disney film The Odd Life of Timothy Green starring opposite Jennifer Garner and Common and the highly anticipated film adaption of the enormously popular book series The Hunger Games starring Oscar Nominee Jennifer Lawrence, Woody Harellson, Lenny Kravitz and Donald Sutherland. As a talented actor who respects and continually improves his craft, Dwayne has positioned himself for further success as the filmmaking industry takes notice. Beginning with his feature film, a romantic comedy titled 4 Minutes, which he wrote, produced, and directed, was not only accepted into the prestigious American Black Film Festival (ABFF), of 2008 in Miami, but it was ranked top four out of 600 entries, and additionally accepted into the International Black Film Festival (IBFF), in Nashville. He recently directed the SAG feature; The Ivy League set to be released later this year and is in development for his third feature, The Legacy of Frank Wallace, which he is slated to direct. Additionally, Boyd's success with Premier Actor's Network (PAN) continues to soar as his classes include on-camera work, monologues, improvisations, scene study, and character development, to prepare for roles in TV, film, commercials, and theatre. He then provide his students with an acting showcase at least twice a year, where they perform in front of hundreds of family, friends and industry personnel, such as; agents, casting directors, and producers. His recent showcase deemed to be the best showcase thus far in metro Atlanta; as exclaimed by very prominent talent agents and casting directors in attendance. In addition to the many accolades, eighty percent of the actors obtained opportunities for agent representation following the showcase. That being an accomplishment within itself, Boyd finds great joy in seeing his diligent work with his students pave the road for their success; and this is what continues to drive him to strive for perfection in the art, live his dream, and fulfill his destiny!
