Born in Rapid City South Dakota, to Rebekah and Cliff Stallings, Michael was raised along with his 3 other brothers Matthew, John and Josh. Growing up Michael always had a passion for acting but it wasn't until he joined the Air Force that he was able to pursue those dreams. Upon graduating from high school Michael joined the Air Force and became a fuels airman. In 2010 he was stationed at Eglin AFB in Florida and thats when he began to study acting. Early 2011 brought Michael to the theatre world as he had heard about a local theatre group called Stage Crafters. He auditioned for the part of Daniel Warren in Sin Sex and the CIA and won the roll. This was Michael's first time acting and was reviewed favorably. July 2011 began a hiatus for Michael as he was selected to a year long deployment in Afghanistan as a fuels mentor. Upon his return from the deployment he was an extra in Sons of Liberty as a special ops team member. In December 2012, Michael received his big break as an extra on Olympus Has Fallen. While on set, his skills in the military came in handy as the director consulted with him about certain military specific situations. During one of the scenes the director (Antoine Fuqua) asked what kind of briefing a military person would give to a higher ranking individual. Michael was able to come up with something on the fly and the director asked him if he would be able to say it on film. This led to Michael's first time speaking role on the big screen. As of February 2013 Michael is studying acting and trying to hone his skills and become more involved with film and theatre.
