Rodney Chester is an American actor. He is best known for his role as Alex Kirby on the Logo sitcom Noah's Arc.


Originally from Cocoa Beach, Florida, Chester graduated from Bethune-Cookman College with honors before moving to Los Angeles to pursue dancing, choreography and theater. He has worked with notable performers, including Whitney Houston, Diana Ross, and Prince.[1]

He later met Noah's Arc creator Patrik-Ian Polk, which led to his acting debut in the independent film, Punks, also directed by Polk. While Polk was working on Noah's Arc, he called Chester, specifying that he had a role available for him.[2]

In his personal life, Chester continues to dance and runs a talent agency in Beverly Hills.[3] He is also a reader of Oprah Winfrey's O: The Oprah Magazine, which is also a hobby for his character in Noah's Arc. Jurnee Crapps, who played Kenya in season one of Noah's Arc, is Chester's goddaughter.[citation needed]
