I am a 25 year veteran Actor, based in Los Angeles. Some of my training includes "True Cold Reading", Stanislavski Script Analysis, Meisner, Alba Emoting, The Alexander Technique, Sketch & Improv, and a tiny bit of Practical Aesthetics. Very eclectic.

A few of my television credits include Snowfall (FX), American Crime (ABC), Reckless (CBS), One Tree Hill (CW), all the way back to season 2 of Dawson's Creek (when the WB was still a network!).

Theatre: Prior to relocating to Los Angeles, I performed in over 100 Theatrical productions on the East Coast. I began as a singer at a young age, dreaming of one day playing the Phantom of the Opera on Broadway. I finally got to play the Phantom... at the Miss Ohio Pageant in the late 90s. That's as close as I've come so far.

I think my top three favorite stage roles that I've been fortunate to play are; Toby in 'Sweeny Todd', the Balladeer in 'Assassins', and Geoffrey Dunderbread in 'Beard of Avon'.

"Langley is not only a good actor, but also a real professional in the business. He gets it. And that makes a difference when you're trying to get through a tough day." ~ Steven Gary Banks (Exec Prod - 'Teen Spirit', ABC Family/ Walt Disney Television).

Langley McArol is an American screen, stage, and voice actor born in Albuquerque, NM and raised in the Midwest. He studied acting in college, and received an audition scholarship to AMDA in New York. Soon after, Langley moved to the Southeast (Wilmington, NC) where he spent several years working in theatre, voice-over, and in front of (as well as behind) the camera.

Now living Los Angeles, CA, Langley continues to work in all facets of performance, and spends his spare time writing screenplays and enjoying his life and every opportunity to do what he loves. He is best known for the FX series "Snowfall" working with Amin Joseph and Brennan Keel Cook, CBS's "Reckless" working with Kim Wayans, Freeform's "Teen Spirit" with Lindsey Shaw and Cassandra Scerbo, and "Going to California" for Showtime working with Brad William Henke, directed by DJ Caruso.
