My name is Tad Yagi. I am an actor based in LA.
Born and raised in Berkeley, CA – I also lived in London, UK and Maplewood, NJ as a kid. My first acting role was the lead role of Turkey Lurkey in the 2nd grade Thanksgiving Play. I got the part because instead of going "gobble gobble", in the throes of childhood depression, I made a velociraptor-like screeching noise... It was an instant hit!
Since then I have acted professionally in films, television shows, commercials, and stage plays. In addition to scripted acting I enjoy performing live sketch and clown comedy with members of the LA comedy and clown communities.
As an actor, I strive to give each role I play a sense of truth, humanity, emotional depth and freshness while also serving the intentions of both the writer and director. As a professional and collaborator, I strive to be diligent, attentive, adaptable, and fun to work with. I am actively seeking opportunities to grow my career and to build collaborative relationships with like-minded artists and professionals in both the US and around the world!
Current Projects 2023:
During the pandemic I dusted off my guitar and singing skills and now perform original songs and accoustic covers at various live shows around LA.
I recorded some original music and posted them to SoundCloud. Have a listen!
