arrett “Bear” Lile was born to a pair of inspiring art teachers in Tulsa, Oklahoma. After watching plays put on by the junior high school where his mother taught, the 10 year old Barrett became infatuated with the dream of acting professionally.

In 2009, Barrett attended Oklahoma City University where he would be an original member of the OCU Improv Troupe, study advanced courses in film acting and Shakespeare, and mentor his own Shakespeare class before graduating with his Bachelor’s degree in the Fine Arts of Acting and a Minor in Directing.

The following summer Barrett packed his bags and made the pilgrimage to Los Angeles with undaunted determination to explore his skills, not only as an actor, but also a writer and an artist in as many medias as drawing, painting, and sculpting.
