Biography

Known for his roles on a number of prime-time miniseries, including the lead in "Kingpin" and a major part in "Thief", Colombian and Puerto Rican American actor Yancey Arias has found supporting work in a number of notable action features over his screen career. After attending New York's St John's Preparatory School and then Carnegie Mellon University, Arias found work on Broadway in the original production of the lavish musical "Miss Saigon", where he performed various roles throughout the early 1990s. Soon he segued into screen work, notably as Emilio Gonzales on the daytime soap "One Life to Live". Work on New York-set crime procedurals like "Law and Order" and "NYPD Blue" soon gave way to work on indie and big-budget features like the 2002 update of H.G. Wells's sci-fi adventure "The Time Machine" once he moved to Los Angeles in 2001. His biggest role came when he won the lead as Miguel Cadena in the six-episode crime family miniseries "Kingpin", and this led to a small arc on the female police drama "The Division" and a supporting role in the short-lived but critically hailed crime miniseries "Thief" on the FX network. Since then, he has balanced several small screen roles, like that of Alex Torres on the update of the action thriller "Knight Rider", with work on major Hollywood features, like the key part of Agent Johnson in the Bruce Willis action sequel "Live Free or Die Hard".
