Shavar Ross from 'Diff'rent Strokes' Looks Great at 49 & Has a Beautiful Daughter Chelsea
His Dudley character holds a very special place in the heart of an entire generation that grew up enjoying his occurrences. His versatility in acting quickly made him play demanding roles at a very young age.
Almost everyone can remember Shavar Ross, 49, being part of the successful ‘80 sitcom “Diff’rent Strokes.” He played the role of Dudley Johnson, Arnold Jackson's loyal and sensible best friend, next to Gary Coleman.
“My daughter Chelsea is the best personal assistant! Thanku @xyzchelc for doing a fantastic job! #ugogirl”
Besides the TV show, Shavar and his colleague, Gary Coleman, were together for the '80s film "Scout's Honor," but from there he continued his independent career. Shavar acted as the son of Detective T.C. in "Magnum, P.I." and as Weasel in "Family Matters." He also appeared on the fifth part of “Friday the 13th”.
After several years of acting, Shavar stopped his career to studying. He enrolled in Bible School at The Ministry Training Institute. There he studied for four years to obtain his degree, and then devoted himself to ministry, pastoring a small non-denominational church for actors.
