Early lifeEdit

Reginald Hayes was born on July 15, 1969 in Chicago, Illinois. As the youngest of four, he had to continuously work hard to keep up with his siblings. Reggie always had an interest in the arts, but was obliged to attend the “Northwestern Military Naval Academy”, who recognized him as one of three “Notable Men of the Academy.” After the Academy, Reggie's love for acting inspired him to attend Illinois State University, where he obtained a bachelor's degree in Theater. In 2004, he won the “Outstanding Young Alumni Award” and was a member of the “Illinois Shakespeare Festival.”


Reggie is an avid supporter of his community and worked alongside his sister at various events for a charity dear to his heart, the “Reginald and Frances Hayes H.O.P.E. Scholarship Award”. He also made a surprise appearance at the University of Illinois in 2009 to present scholarships to deserving students. Reggie continues to help charities with missions he is deeply passionate about in the hope of creating positive change.

Reggie is best known for his role as William Dent on BET/UPN/CW's hit T.V. show “Girlfriends” that aired for 8 years until 2008. It earned him the “Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series” for three NAACP Image Awards. Reggie went on to appear in several other movies and T.V. shows, including Criminal Minds, Will & Grace and NCIS.

After a short career break, Hayes teamed up with Lock & Key Entertainment to launch his new brand.
