Deji LaRay Biography

Deji LaRay is a multi-talented actor, writer, and producer from Atlanta, Georgia, who is gearing up for the release of the new show he created, "Johnson." After realizing there was a stereotype against African American men not sharing emotions or expressing themselves, he knew the world needed a show that not only showcases the opposite but would also help close the divide between the understanding of men and women. The series follows four lifelong friends with the same last name who have found themselves growing apart and offers viewers the ability to find humor in the most current and controversial social issues from the Black man's perspective.

From a young age, LaRay always knew he wanted to be an artist. After performing on Broadway at just 13-years-old and ultimately graduating from high school, LaRay took his talents to Los Angeles, where he received a BA in Film and TV from Cal State Los Angeles, studying directing and filmmaking to hone his skillset.

LaRay can be seen starring in seasons 2 and 3 of the Amazon Prime series "Age of the Living Dead." He also spent six seasons on the Amazon series "Bosch," and appeared in three episodes during the first season of the OWN series "Greenleaf."

Outside of acting, LaRay is passionate about mentorship and aims to start his own nonprofit that will help mentor children in inner cities. He hopes to give kids the ability to get onto a path where they can see that the world is bigger than the neighborhood in front of them.
