Born and raised on Long Island, New York, Joshua Schubart has been working as a professional actor for over a decade.
Joshua had a tough childhood, growing up homeless and in the foster care system. At 14, his foster parents put him in Catholic school, and his life took a turn for the better. He discovered acting in his early teens, as an escape from his day-to-day challenges. He would often say that acting literally saved his life, giving him the drive and motivation to make his dreams come true. Joshua attended the Asolo Conservatory for actor training and got a BA in Acting from Stony Brook University. Upon graduation, he fully immersed himself in the craft, building a reputation as a hardworking and talented actor.
Joshua has been seen in projects ranging from small indie films to walking the boards at the Metropolitan Opera. Some of his recent work includes a recurring role in the Amazon series The Tick, and appearances in Seven Seconds (Netflix) and High Maintenance (HBO). His voice can also be heard on a long list of audiobooks available on Amazon Audible, including Blue Summer, Lorelei and Blaze of Ecstasy.
In addition to acting, Joshua is a highly skilled stunt man/stage combatant, with training in hand-to-hand, almost every bladed weapon and most guns. Passionate as well about stepping behind the camera, Joshua is the co-founder of the production company 2 Ladies & A Giant. Together with his production company, Joshua created .After, a series about a widower navigating life and the dating scene after losing his wife. The series, starring Joshua, is a story of life, love, and rebirth, and streams on IFT Network.
Growing up reading comic books, Joshua hopes to work with Marvel in the near future. And working with Taika Waititi is a dream of his.
Also a plus size model, Joshua hopes his work in front and behind the camera will open doors for larger people in the industry, break the stereotypes, and prove that they are more than just the funny or bad guys.
In his free time Joshua likes to build computers, read, play different sports, and spend time with his wife, who is expecting their first baby. To learn more about Joshua, follow him on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram at @Josh_Schubart.
