Early Life, Education, and Career Beginnings
At a young age Benjamin became passionate about dance, and was able to achieve much thanks to competitions. He later attended Wayzata High School, which is the largest high school in Minnesota in terms of enrollment with over 3,400 students, andthe largest secondary school in the state in terms of size, serving eight municipalities. It is ranked as one of the top 500 high schools in the US by US News and World Report.
After matriculating, he continued his studies at the American University located in Washington, D., a private university located on the site of the former Fort Gaines. It has been operational since 1914, offering programs in numerous disciplines, and has over 13,000 students representing all US states, and 141 countries.
He began his career in 1992, appearing as the son of Martin Short in the film entitled “Captain Ron”.
It starred Kurt Russell as the titular character, while Short played an upper-middle-class family man who hires the captain for a trip through the Caribbean on the captain’s yacht.
In 1993, Salisbury was cast in his most notable role, in “The Nanny”, playing one of the children under the care of the titular character. The show aired on CBS, and followed the life of a Jewish fashion queen who becomes the nanny of three children living in high society. The show proved successful, winning an Emmy Award and 12 nominations in total.
The show also earned a Rose d’Or, an award given at international festivals, focused on programming and broadcasting. The main star of the show Fran Drescher also gained several award nominations for her performance as the nanny. The fame of the show reached a point that international editions were created, loosely based on the original script.
While working on the show, he also had other opportunities, including an appearance in “D3: The Mighty Ducks” in 1996, playing a sports announcer.

Only Daniel Davis was not able to attend the reunion due to appearing in a Broadway show at the time. One of his last projects on television was a guest appearance in the show “Numb3rs”, playing the role of a train expert.
Salisbury married Kelly Murkey in 2006 – their marriage lasted until 2013 when they settled for a divorce. His final television appearance coincided with the year of his marriage, as he appeared in commercials for the company Domino’s Pizza, promoting their new mini-brownies called the Fudge-ums.
In 2017, it was reported that he now works at Universal Studios Hollywood, as the Director of Operations for the entire park.
