Rodgers was a straight-A student at St Kentigern’s Academy in Blackburn. At the age of 16, Rodgers quit school and left home for Edinburgh at the age of 16. After years learning his craft in less high-profile roles, his portrayal of a murdering heroin addict on NYPD Blue brought Michael to the attention of casting directors. Then he moved to Los Angeles, California to pursue his acting career since not many acting careers are available in Scotland.
