Dagan Nish is an actor whose love for the craft emerged in the 5th grade when he played the lead role of The Hunter in his elementary school play. Later in high school, he became heavily involved in the drama department, and would often skip class to the point of near-failure so that he could stow away in the theatre. His most extensive professional training has been under the tutelage of Kate Twa (Railtown Actors Studio), whose ensemble scene study class creates a safe space for fearless exploration of humanity's best and worst facets. Dagan’s most recent work includes appearances on The Good Doctor, The 100, and Colony. He was also a subject of Kassandra Tomczyk's documentary film, The Yoga of Life.
