Bio

Film Bio:
Edward Hightower has been acting since the late 20th Century and has the facial hair to prove it. Honing his craft onstage for much of that time, his first on-camera work was in 1989, improvising award-winning sketch comedy on glamorous SF Bay Area Cable Access. An avid backpacker, Edward prefers trekking alone through the High Sierra to just about anything — except knock-knock jokes and deeply filthy double-entendres. Which he inserts wherever possible. Recent film endeavors include mikO Tolliver’s Section 8, Hassan Said’s This Is Your Song, Nick Anderson & Skyler Henry’s The Merger, and Michael Allen Hennesy’s Critic. Skilled in the reading of Tarot, Edward is happiest with his best role to date: fatherhood. He wrote this bio in third person.
