Juan Carlos Diaz is an actor born and raised in New York City.  He began acting at the age of six in various school plays and musicals while in private school.  As a teen, his focus and excitement for the arts drove him to begin taking acting classes.

While still in high school, he began working at the Puerto Rican Traveling Theatre under the direction of Miriam Colon Valle, which led to his first Equity production at the age of 17 at New Media Repertory Theatre, where he immediately became part of the children’s theatre company there.  

Juan Carlos holds a BA in theatre from Bard College, where he studied under the tutelage of JoAnne Akalaitis and Liz Smith.  

His constant pursuit, dedication, and passion for acting has allowed him to travel in and out of New York.  He considers New York City his place for “soul” and “growth” and is always hard at work in new and challenging roles.
