Early life and educationEdit

Born and raised in Chicago, Russell studied theater at the Chicago Academy of the Arts. In his senior year at the academy, he was almost forced to drop out because he could no longer afford the tuition. Through total serendipity, Oprah Winfrey became his temporary benefactor and issued him a check to cover his entire year's tuition, thus enabling him to complete his studies.

Russell currently resides in Los Angeles.
