Byron Quiros

Native Californian of Costa Rican decent, Byron Quiros has enjoyed success in all areas of the entertainment industry: film, TV, dance and theatre. At the age of seven, he had already a vision of working in front of the camera. Byron discovered a natural ability to move, which excelled him at sports and soon after found break dance leading him into performing. He trained in theatre and dance at the University of California, Irvine and performed extensively under Donald McKayle, Israel "El" Gabriel, Janice Plastino, Donald Bradburn, Robert Cohen, and the late Bernard Johnson. Byron was then discovered in the Mr. Latin of California Competition. This lead him to choreograph and dance for BMG Records, Fiesta Broadway, Puerto Rican Festival, Miss Panamerican Internacional, and two national commercial spots for Sears Roebuck as the lead dancer and model. Since, he's worked with Craig David, Disney, Grammy Winner Usher Raymond, and currently tours with Latin Grammy Nominee Ana Barbara. Upon graduating from UC Irvine, Byron continued his studies in drama by studying Meisner under John Ruskin (apprentice to Sandy Meisner in New York). He guest starred on JAG (1995 TV series), booked several national commercials and honed his craft on stage which he believes is the true stepping ground for an actor. His theatre credits include Dawgs, The Bullfight, A Midsummer Night's Dream, Short Eyes for which his portrayal of Paco, a gay Puerto Rican prisoner, earned him a Los Angeles Drama Critics' Circle Honorable Mention and Spoon River Anthology for which he won a LADCC Best Actor Award. He most recently appeared in the Tony Award Winning play, Take Me Out for the Geffen Playhouse at The Brentwood Theatre with Jeremy Sisto, Terrell Tilford, Jeffrey Nordling, and Carmen Argenziano; directed by Randall Arney, ensemble member & former Artistic Director of Chicago's Steppenwolf Theatre and current Artistic Director for The Geffen Playhouse. Byron's film credits include Set It Off (1996), The Legacy, King Rikki (2002), and Coronado (2003) with Kristin Dattilo, Clayton Rohner, and John Rhys-Davies. His latest film project, Hard Pill with Jonathan Slavin, will make its way into the film circuit.
