With a resume that includes working opposite Academy Award nominee Edward James Olmos in INSP TV’s western film House of the Righteous — as well as co-starring roles on Mr. Mercedes, The Inspectors, Nashville, The Originals, and The Haves and the Have Nots — 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 service gave him the opportunity to travel across the United States, adding further life experience to his acting background.
A fitness enthusiast, Isaiah has participated in multiple races from 5Ks to half-marathons and even a Tough Mudder race. He is also an adrenaline junky who has made time for skydiving and cliff jumping. In his spare time, he enjoys writing poetry and short fiction. Isaiah currently lives in Nashville, TN.
Trivia: while stationed at Quantico, Isaiah was cast as Bradley Cooper’s photo double in Paramount Pictures’ Failure to Launch. After returning to South Carolina, he made the cut as one of the football players in George Clooney’s Leatherheads, where he had the opportunity to tackle John Krasinski repeatedly for one of the movie’s goal line shots.
