Ser'Darius William Blain (born March 10, 1987) is an American actor. He is known for his portrayal of Anthony “Fridge” Johnson in Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, the sequel to Jumanji.

Life and career[edit]

Blain started acting at the age of twelve when he helped his mother rewrite the script for a school play. His mother, a middle school English and drama teacher, cast him in the lead which caused him to "catch the bug". Blain credits this with overcoming his shyness, "l was a super shy boy to the point where I’d hold on to my mother’s skirt as a little boy...I’d always watched TV and wondered what that must be like". In 2007, his girlfriend convinced him to attend Actors, Models & Talent For Christ which got him into New York Conservatory for Dramatic Arts where he met his agent DebraLynn Findon.[1] He graduated from NYC in 2009 and since then earned roles in films such as Camp X-Ray and When the Game Stands Tall.[2] Blain played Anthony “Fridge” Johnson in the sequel Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle (2017),[3] and appeared in director James Kicklighter's short film Angel of Anywhere, starring Briana Evigan and David A. Gregory.[4]

In February 2018, Blain was cast in a regular role for The CW's fantasy drama series Charmed, a reboot of the 1998 series of the same name. The reboot "centers on three sisters in a college town who discover they are witches."[5] Blain will play the role of Galvin, a scientist and the boyfriend of Macy Vaughn (played by Madeleine Mantock), one of the sisters in the series.[6][7]
