MYKE HOLMES is an
American TV and film actor
who has called Wilmington
home for close to 20 years. Holmes had
a role in numerous Wilmington projects
when film was booming here, includ-ing
One Tree Hill, Revolution, Under the
Dome, Sleepy Hollow, Secrets and Lies, A
Short History of Decay, Adrenaline and
Nicholas Sparks’s The Longest Ride.
Since film moved away, Holmes also
has traveled to appear in The Walking
Dead and the 2018 film Mile 22,
and most recently the new Kendrick
Brothers movie called Overcomer which
hits theaters Aug. 23.
Holmes has continued to keep his
roots planted in Wilmington because
he says he likes the great laid-back but
energetic beach town lifestyle without
the muck of a big city.
“Wilmington is an ideal place to raise
a family and still be within 500 miles
of Atlanta — the place where much of
our film has relocated to in the last 10
years,” he says.
Holmes also teaches acting at
the University of North Carolina
Wilmington. He touts UNCW as a great
resource for students looking to pursue
acting. He said he’s constantly inspired
by all the young, eager artists he has the
privilege to teach. Through his acting
and teaching roles he says he hears whis-pers
about more activity trickling back.
