American Actor and Model Hardie Duhaney II was born June 28, 1985, in Bayshore, New York. His mother, Brenda Duhaney is a retired neonatal nurse and his father, Hardie Duhaney Sr. works in sales. Hardie grew up in a household with his three older sisters and a cousin who was also raised by his parents. His first spark of inspiration to act came around the age of seven when a cousin of his was doing an impression of a character from the 1992 film, Batman Returns. Hardie did not formally start acting as a child but kept finding himself very impressed by many performers during his teen years, including the comedic actor Jim Carrey.
He would act out Carrey’s characters from movies such as The Mask and Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, which his friends found amusing. Fast forward to his adult life, Hardie explored several careers including being a business owner and certified professional dog trainer. Dogs were and still are a big part of his heart but he knew deep down that he wanted to act more than anything else.
In his late 20’s while still owning and operating a business, he would escape to New York City when called for background work on TV shows. While being on different film sets, Hardie would watch the lead actors in action, picturing himself in their positions one day. He started auditioning and landing roles in commercial and film. In late 2018, he made a full commitment to his acting career by selling his business and moving to Orange County, California where he currently resides and pursues his dream to be a full time working actor.
