Henry W. Laster is best known for doing the voice-over for L.E.S in Small Wonder: Love at First Byte (1988) and as Kent Flankman in Salute Your Shorts (1991).

Born on December 12, 1978 in Miami, Florida, Laster's first experience was in elementary school singing the song Fifty Nifty United States. His love and respect for theatre deepened as his love for theatre from that day going forward.

Before Henry became an actor, he was involved in LGBT rights, anti-racism campaigns, and anti-bullying campaigns, all for which he held a great passion.

What people don't know is that he didn't love being a kid. Racing toward adulthood to escape bullying, he began writing jokes for stand up. Getting picked on and feeling disenfranchised is a subject that's very near to Henry's heart. This experience was a traumatic one because it kept bringing up unresolved feelings left over from childhood.

He is incredibly active in anti-racism, anti-bullying and gay rights campaigns, and never has been recognized for his unwavering dedication.

He has participated in many LGBT organizations all across the US of A. He has even marched in LGBT pride parades to show his dedication to this matter as it is close to his heart. He has even showed his support by doing the movies Milk (2008) and Pedro (2008).

Through his hard work, Henry has had the opportunity to be heard, to extend his point of view and become regarded as a true pioneer in his field. He takes none of it for granted.

Not one to rest on his laurels, Henry spent whatever free time he had working on finding his next gig.

Laster can also be seen in Miracle of the Heart: A Boys Town Story (1986), Christmas Angel (2012), and Tammy (2014).

As of this writing Henry has been diagnosed as being legally blind. He was involved with the Braille Institute in Rancho Mirage and Los Angeles, California locations.
