Justin Parrish is an artist born and raised in Los Angeles, California. When he was young, he tried his hand at baseball, gymnastics, karate, and chess before he finally caught the theatre bug during his first-grade class performance of “My Girl” by The Temptations. Back then, he only enjoyed it because he was the center of attention but now, he is drawn to acting because he loves sharing and exploring the human experience. To him, acting is a form of expression and artistry that transcends other mediums, making use of storytelling to invoke curiosity and imagination. He knows he has done his job if the audience forgets they’re watching an actor.
When he isn’t acting, you can find him playing licks on his electric bass, singing show tunes too loud, or watching many episodes of his favorite anime, One Piece.
Throughout his journey of being an actor, he was a member of an LA-based acapella group, won multiple awards competing against 80 other schools in a theatre competition called D.T.A.S.C., and assisted a children’s theater company. Some of his favorite theatrical credits include Estragon in Waiting for Godot, Sir Toby Belch in Twelfth Night, and De Guiche in Cyrano de Bergerac.
