Joshua Bruce Payne was born on September 10, 1986 in Elizabethtown, Kentucky. He was the middle son of 3 children by his deep rooted Pentecostal parents Pastor Joseph and Marjorie Payne. Josh was raised in an extremely religious home and was restricted from a lot of entertainment growing up such as TV, Radio etc. Thank God Josh comes from a naturally talented and gifted family so his entertainment/acting bug was already in his blood at an early age. After graduating high school, Josh joined the United States Army to better solidify himself. While in the Army, Josh learned life lessons such as punctuality, hard work, physical fitness and dedication to name a few. Josh began modeling in Germany and gained a strong interest in acting while still in the Army. After separation from the Army Josh moved to Atlanta, GA and is going full speed in his acting and modeling career.
