Sydney (Syd) Skidmore grew up in a small town called Fallbrook where there are more avocado trees than people, and where the only thing to do for fun is to perform in community theatre. So when they became the ripe age of 7, they stepped onto the stage for the first time and haven't wanted to leave since.

Syd graduated from the University of Southern California with a  Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Acting. They now live in Los Angeles with their cat, and a large collection of house plants.
