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!
