With a resume that includes working opposite Mandy Patinkin (Homeland) and Academy Award nominee Edward James Olmos (INSP TV’s western film House of the Righteous) — not to mention roles on TV shows like MacGyver, Mr. Mercedes, The Inspectors, Nashville, and The Originals — Isaiah Stratton has had acting in his blood since he was old enough to stand. During his junior high and high school years, he took home multiple state and national awards for his work in both acting and writing. Isaiah continued his acting career with several lead role performances in collegiate theatre productions at Bob Jones University, including the role of Christian in Cyrano de Bergerac.
Isaiah spent eight years in the Marine Corps serving in both the reserves and on active duty. His military experience gives him the ability to slip into tactical, military, and law enforcement roles with ease.
Never one to let the grass grow under his feet, Isaiah has written and directed several of his own short films, the latest of which (“Prelude”) premiered at the Nashville Film Festival. In his spare time, he enjoys reading, and writing poetry and short fiction.
