Ramy Zada > Bio


Ramy Zada has been an actor, writer and director since 1987. He was born in Los Angeles and raised in the San Fernando Valley and, from an early age, was very active in all organized sports including football, baseball, basketball and track & field.  His goal was to play professional football or to be an architect, but his love of film pulled his focus toward film study. While attending C.S.U.N, he worked in construction as a carpenter and Glaser (glass man), played football and graduated from their film school with a B.A. in Film Directing and Production.

After being accepted to some of the country’s leading Universities for a Masters Degree in Drama & Theatre, he chose to instead pursue a different route. He starred in many small products in Los Angeles Theatre, one being a production of Sam Shepard’s one act play “Cowboys #2”, for which he received high praise. He then Co-Founded and was Co-Artistic director of one of the most highly regarded Equity Waiver Theatres in Los Angeles, The Court Theatre. He oversaw the construction of the theatre’s interior and the outside courtyard. Ramy starred in many productions at The Court (Deathwatch, The Blue Dahlia, etc.) and co-produced plays for such acclaimed artists as John Cassavetes, Gena Rowlands, Carol Kane, Woody Harrelson, and Chazz Palminteri.

When Ramy wasn’t acting in or producing plays at The Court, he launched a catering business to help support the theater and created revenue to produce plays by hosting and catering movie “wrap” parties.  He starred in Michael Gazzo’s play, ‘The October Night of Tommy Zero”, at The Actors Studio and was invited by Martin Landau to become an Actors Studio observer. His theatre work was receiving a lot of attention, which led to his being cast in a high profile Theatre production starring opposite Kathleen Turner in Pam Gems’ adaptation of “Camille”, directed by Ron Daniels of the Royal Shakespeare Company at The Long Wharf Theatre in New Haven, Conn.

He then began to work steadily in Film and Television, eventually being cast as Judge Nicholas Marshall, the lead role in C.B.S’s hit Dark Justice. This was the first show from a major network to be shot entirely on another continent, in Barcelona, Spain and was a hit in the U.S as well as the rest of the world. After Dark Justice, Ramy continued to work steadily as an actor on both coasts and Canada, including shooting a miniseries in Croatia during the height of the Balkan war in Yugoslavia. A recent favorite performance was playing Eddie Carbone in the International City Theatre’s production of “A View From the Bridge”, for which he won unanimous rave reviews.

His second passion is real estate and he has invested in buying and selling many properties in Los Angeles. Ramy’s  travels through Italy, France, Germany, Switzerland, Spain, Portugal, Ireland, England, Egypt, Australia, Tahiti, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Mexico, and Greece have all influenced the love of his third passion: food. He has a great appreciation and respect for the many cultures he has been lucky enough to experience, and the people that create it. He tries, always, to have this respect present in his work as an actor, writer and director.

He now resides in Los Angeles with the love of his life and the most beautiful woman on earth; someone whose wisdom he treasures more than anyone in the world: his wife.
