Arturo Dirzo ARTURO DIRZO's path as an actor began in 2004, being on stage was a thrill unlike anything I had ever done, and the comradery, and seeing words and ideas that only existed on paper be transformed into a fully developed 3Dimensional world was like finding magic.
In 2005 I completed a two-year conservatory training at Foothill College from which I graduated with honors. Knowing I still had much more to learn I moved first to Irvine, and received a BA in theatre from UC Irvine, and then over-seas and continued my training at the Birmingham School of Acting in the U.K. After England I returned to California, now armed with great tools and training to pursue my dreams of working in film and television.
