Ricardo Blayde Diaz
The proverbial class clown, Ricardo grew up in small town Illinois. Surprisingly, he didn’t actually make his foray into theatre until his junior year at the University of Missouri, but after one acting class, he was hooked! After graduating with a BA in Biology/Theatre, Ricardo accepted a Production Management Apprenticeship at the American Theatre Company in Chicago. During his time there, he continued honing his craft by performing in dozens of stage productions across the city as well as training in improv and sketch comedy, graduating from the iO Chicago. In 2017, Ricardo made THE BIG MOVE to Los Angeles, where he continues to write, act in film/TV, and work with an amazing FIREFLY THEATRE GROUP.
