Short bio -

Actor and opera singer Kurt Sanchez Kanazawa will Guest Star on the upcoming Facebook Watch series "Airport Security Squad", a workplace comedy created by Anwar Jibawi (5m subscribers on YouTube), opposite Mia Serafino (NBC's "Crowded") in 2020. Already a familiar face in Italy, as a soap opera actor, model, commercial spokesman, and essentially the only fluent Italian-speaking Asian person on the world market, in 2018, Kurt decided to come back home to Los Angeles, where he was born & raised in Westwood Village, to pursue leading man TV roles in English. He quickly booked a gory role on ABC's "Grey's Anatomy" (speaking English) as "Tad", the stockbroker with a bloody nose from drugs. Regional stage appearances include Boston Court Pasadena (Ovation Award-nominated "The Judas Kiss"), Ojai Playwrights Conference, Sierra Madre Playhouse (“Nothing is the Same” dir. Tim Dang), LATW (Audible Magazine Earphones Award-winner, “Sisters Matsumoto”), Artists at Play, and The Industry (artistic dir. Yuval Sharon, MacArthur “Genius Grant” Award-winner). Kurt is featured in publications like The New York Times, LA Times, and the Rafu Shimpo. Upcoming, he will appear as Stanley Hayami, the title role of a VR project directed by Nonny de la Pena for an exhibit at JANM (Japanese American National Museum) and screening at the Tribeca Film Festival 2020.
