Ben Richardson has been involved with acting and production for the past 12 years. Starting with writing, acting, and editing local short films, in 2004 he changed gears and began acting in local theatre. After achieving success over the course of several years, he once again set his sights on film. In 2011 he was included on a list of, “30 actors under 30 to watch”. After taking a year and a half hiatus for personal reasons, in late 2013, he came back to the production side of film to help produce Starship Valiant.

Through the course of production with Valiant, he rediscovered his passion for film, and in 2014 returned to acting. Over that course of time, he has been in numerous films and commercials, gaining local and regional consideration. He starts off 2015 once again working with the Valiant team on their 2nd endeavor, as well as being the director, actor, and writer for the film Repercussion which is being produced this Spring.

Richardson’s favorite Star Trek series is TOS, and looks forward to having Valiant maintain that feel. The first Star Trek film he watched was Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, and his favorite is Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home. Ben is excited to see, Episode 2, “The Tie That Binds” get made, and hopes that everyone will find a place for it in their Star Trek hearts.
