Victor Del Rio is an actor and filmmaker working out of New York City. He has a Bachelor of Arts in Theatre from the prestigious Mason Gross School of Arts at Rutgers University and has completed his MFA acting training at the world famous Actors Studio Drama School.
He has appeared in numerous TV Shows such as The Americans (FX), Instinct (CBS), The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel (Amazon) and more recently Evil Lives Here (Discovery +). In 2018, Victor made his NYC Theater Debut at The Duke on 42nd Street Theater, where he played the role of Luke in John Patterson’s NY Theater Festival Finalist Play, Versimilitude. Victor was also seen in the role of Jimmy in the new play by Johnathan Wallace titled Brooklyn of Light at the Manhattan Repertory Theatre. You will soon be able to see Victor as the lead in the upcoming sci-fi feature film Precognito by producer Brian K. Bennet.
Victor has recently completed his training at The Actors Studio Drama School under the teachings of notable acting coach Susan Aston. Prior to working at The Actors Studio, Victor graduated from The Mason Gross School of Arts at Rutgers University where he studied Theatre with a concentration in performance. His studies at Rutgers also consisted of stage management, scenic design, devising and theater history. During his time at Rutgers he also worked as a Casting Assistant Intern at McCorkle Casting Ltd.
Prior to Acting, Victor was a standout football player recruited by Salisbury University to play at the collegiate level. He played there for a year until he received a career ending injury that left him unsure of what he could do next. He quickly realized that the only other thing he enjoyed, and the only other thing that people ever told him he was good at, was forms of theater. He had always been a keen impersonator, class clown and would constantly be creating sketches to act out with friends and family members throughout his entire life. He moved back to New Jersey, which is his native state, and enrolled at Rutgers University where he began diving into the world of theater. The more involved he became in the theater, the more he began to see that the same principles that he had learned as an athlete were the same ones he needed to succeed as an actor.
In his spare time, Victor enjoys fitness training as he is extremely committed to improving himself and living a healthy lifestyle. He is extremely passionate about sports and continues to volunteer in athletics as much as he can. He is also an avid movie goer and film buff. You can find Victor on the streets of NYC riding his skateboard across town, as it is one of the things that brings him the most sense of freedom in his life.
I can state with assurance that Victor is not only one of the most gifted young people with whom I've worked, but also one of the most grounded."
- Paul T. Pfeiffer (Artistic Director of The Bobbi Biron Theatre)
He is the type of actor who naturally pursues objectives in his work... in addition to this he is exceptional at taking risks and implementing direction in a natural way that truly makes him a delight to work with."
- Leticia Lange (Acting professor at The Mason Gross School of Arts)
His work was spontaneous, full of life, and bursting with vulnerability; his classmates could barely contain their laughter at the top of the scene, and could not hold back their gasps of shock by the end."
- Sarah Sirota (Acting Faculty at The Mason Gross School of Arts)
