London Bridges was born in the very small town of Crawford, MS, population 600 people and home to famous sports alumni Jerry Rice, Clarence Weatherspoon and the legendary Blues singer Big Joe Williams. He became involved in acting when a friend of his at the University of Southern Mississippi asked him to cover for an actor who’d dropped out the day of the show. For his performance, he received good feedback but never pursued it further. While working in Florida, he decided he wanted to take up acting and moved to California.
