Since his electrocution and return from death in 1968, Kevin has devoted his life to turning his dreams into reality. At age 16, he became a professional actor, and worked steadily for the next decade in theatre, both On and Off Broadway in New York, as well as in film. Training in his chosen profession consisted of: The American Academy of Dramatic Arts; The Actor's Studio; The HB Studio; and with Stella Adler, all in New York City.
Kevin spent most of his childhood growing up between the suburbs of Naugatuck and the tough ghetto area known as The North End of Waterbury, Connecticut, where he learned to fight and discipline himself in the Old World art of fencing, becoming a street_smart survivor which helped in his role as a world_class adventurer.
In 1989, Kevin burst onto the national scene when he broke the near_impossible Guinness World Record of traveling the entire length of the New York Subway system in 26 hours, 21 minutes, 08 seconds. A year later, he followed up that accomplishment with becoming the first and only person to ride a bicycle, from one end to the other, atop the Great Wall of China, covering some 2000 miles, and earning the 1990 Cyclist of the Year award. Needless to say, Kevin took a serious detour from his acting career.
The 90s became one roller coaster ride after another for Kevin when he followed up the "last, greatest cycling adventure on the face of the earth" with the American Summits tour of placing a full scale mountain bike atop the highest natural point in each of the 50 united States, and the tip_to_tip, 1158_mile, Tour de Cuba, the longest bicycle trek in that nation's history.
Mr. Foster has also been honored with entries in: Who’s Who in the World; Who’s Who in America; and Outstanding Intellectuals of the 21st Century.
When not traveling throughout the world turning dreams into realities, Kevin spends his time presenting slide shows and giving motivational talks of his adventures to the various schools, colleges, and corporations in the united States. He also keeps busy with various charities and around his homestead and community in the tiny hamlet of Kaweah Commonwealth, located at the base of the Sequoia National Park in central California.
As of 2004, Kevin has returned to his acting roots, as well as writing and producing numerous film projects that have been or will be making their premieres.
Known as Captain America (because of his love of the red, white and blue; stars 'n' stripes) by millions of schoolchildren around the world, Kevin can be reached through his website by clicking on the "Contact" link above. Keven actually tries to answer most of his fan mail when time permits!
