"When Joshua Schell listens to his fellow actors onstage, he truly appears to be hearing the lines for the first time — which makes the scenes he's in feel alive and fully spontaneous." - San Francisco Weekly
Josh Schell began training as an actor at the A.C.T. Young Conservatory in San Francisco before going on to earn a BFA from the University of Southern California in Los Angeles. Shortly after graduating from USC, he returned to the Bay Area where he acted professionally in 21 plays, taking on roles in everything from Tarell Alvin McCraney's In the Red and Brown Water to Edward Albee's Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?. In addition to his work onstage, he has been cast in several independent films, including a starring role in the micro-budget feature For the Coyotes (which premiered at the 2015 Bend Film Festival), and Other Side of the Box (which has been officially selected to screen at the 2019 SXSW Film Festival). His commercial and industrial credits include union projects for clients like Toyota and Samsung.
He was named "Best Actor" by San Francisco Weekly for his work in Bay Area theater and is a proud member of both SAG-AFTRA and AEA. Josh is now based in Los Angeles.
