Justin Andrew Davis is originally from the quiet suburbs of Central Jersey – or the southernmost part of North Jersey if you want to fight about it. He wasn’t always an actor, and before finding the craft, he received his MFA in Creative Writing (poetry, specifically) from the New School. After working a number of internships and odd jobs post-graduation, the life of book-writing and professoring never quite materialized – and he couldn’t be more grateful.
Without seemingly every plan going awry, Justin wouldn’t have taken a risk on that very first acting class at the Barrow Group, where he discovered what would become an all-consuming passion, calling, and eventual profession. Now, he is actively advancing his career as an actor, with his focus set primarily on the fields of TV and film.
Recently, Justin has won several awards on the film festival circuit in support of "You Look Great," a short film inspired by his personal experiences with eating disorders, as well as his first film as a filmmaker. Awards include Best Actor from both Winter Film Awards and Chain NYC Film Festival, as well as Outstanding Short from the Art of Brooklyn Film Festival.
In addition, Justin starred as lead Alex in his first feature film, "Myth," which is also currently on the film festival circuit. Awards for "Myth" include Best Narrative Feature and Best Actress (Sadie Scott) from Chain NYC Film Festival.
