David Z. Cohen


David Z. Cohen (he/him) is a multidisciplinary actor and performer. He has appeared in various professional theatre plays and musicals, local indie rock bands, national and international commercials, and worldwide bestselling video games. Special talents include playing multiple instruments, tap dancing, and wiggling his ears. It has been said his delivery is so good, he must have been a postal worker in a past life.

For David, acting and filmmaking isn’t just a job or a pastime, it’s truly a passion. A skilled performer with a professional demeanor, David’s expertise ranges from broad comedy to grounded dramas. He loves collaborating towards a common goal, and making a positive contribution to any and every project. This ability has brought him several local accolades and keeps him consistently improving on his craft.

When thinking of career highlights, David has loved diving into the life of a darkly anarchic adolescent like his role as JD in Heathers, embracing sharp playfulness as Andrej in Once, or tackling whip-smart wit at break-neck speeds as Dimitri in the ensemble piece Posh (CTC Award Nominee for Best Actor). It has always been David’s objective to bring a high degree of thoughtfulness and curiosity to his roles, to better and more organically serve the story.

Past reviewers have referred to David’s performances as “suavely understated and grounded”, that he “adds warmth and realism to his standout moments”, and that his range “teeters deftly between smooth confidence and manic desperation” – Not that he reads reviews.
