Who is Himie?

Himie Freeman is an Atlanta-based actor/producer/writer. He was born in Akron, Ohio on December 1st, 1997 to Amanda Mason-Freeman and Dr. T Edwin Freeman and is the second of three children (one older sister, Maya and one younger brother, Gahien). He grew up in Rochester, New York until his family moved to Canton, Georgia in 2005. He graduated from high school in 2015 and graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Media and Entertainment Studies from Kennesaw State in 2020.


Himie's passion as a creative manifested in middle school, when he had the opportunity to write a play for his class. After seeing the positive response from his class, he got more involved with the theatre program at his school. He acted in plays in his high school theatre program and even wrote a couple of shows his senior year. Once entering college, he took a break from writing plays to focus on his ventures in acting and radio. From 2015 to 2018, he acted in five plays (Branches Etched Across the Sky, Barbershop Blues, Twilight 1992 Los Angeles, As You Like It, Our Town) and also created a radio show in the summer of 2017 at the school's radio station Owl Radio called "Kampus Kulture". The show blended local happenings with pop culture topics and was featured as a topic of interest in newspaper publication “The Sentinel”. In the summer of 2018, alongside colleagues Zack Towner and Meshach Young, he founded an entertainment company named “Brothas is Broke” (a phrase coined  by Himie Freeman) where he served as an actor, writer, and producer. The company created a number of skits, hosted events and appeared as guest performers at live events  on their school's campus. The group was also featured in publications like “The Sentinel” and “VoyageATL” magazine.


In 2020, Himie appeared in his first two short films. He starred as comedic relief Damon in  the romantic-comedy film “Exception to the Rule” and determined hero Blacktain America in the Brothas is Broke-produced superhero-parody film “Blacktain America: COD”.

In 2021, Himie starred in the award-winning heist short film "Rules to Rule" as the hot-tempered thief, Hoffa. The film won a host of awards at festivals, including Most Outstanding Action/Suspense Film at the 2021 Micheaux Film Festival. Next, he made his first appearance as a villain on-screen, playing the deceitful Jordan in the thriller "The Ultimatum" along with starring as the lead, Bleu Maxie, in the dramatic webseries "Momma's Boy", playing an up-and-coming movie director who returns home for the first time in years to face past demons.

In 2023, Himie made his major network television debut as superstar basketball prospect "Filthy McNasty" in the Emmy award-winning Disney+ series "The Crossover". He also founded his production company "SOAX Productions", with the mystery/noir short film "CHAOS" slated to be the company's first project (written and co-directed by Himie).

Himie is working to be respected as a well-rounded creative: acting, writing, producing, and directing while serving as an example of success, honor, and integrity to his community.
