Raphael Sbarge has explored countless worlds in more than 40 years as an actor, from fairy tales, as Archie Hopper and Jiminy Cricket in the hit ABC drama Once Upon a Time; to outer space as the heroic Kaidan Alenko in the highly acclaimed videogame series Mass Effect.
His own story began in Manhattan. He began working at the age of 4, when a new PBS show called Sesame Street was looking for kids. At 13, Raphael decided to become an actor and found an agent. He started working almost immediately. By 16 he was in his first Broadway show; at 18, just days after graduating high school, he flew to Chicago to co-star in Risky Business with Tom Cruise.
Raphael has appeared in more than 30 films, including Vision Quest, Independence Day and Pearl Harbor. He was a series regular on The Guardian and has made more than 100 guest appearances, including recurring roles on Dexter, Big Love, Prison Break, CSI, Grey’s Anatomy, 24, CSI: NY, Profiler and Star Trek Voyager. He has also contributed his voice to the highly acclaimed games Mass Effect (The New York Times’ Game of the Year) and Knights of the Old Republic.
In his spare time, Raphael continues his work with the environmental nonprofit he founded, Green Wish. The organization has chapters in Los Angeles and Kansas, and plans to launch more across the country in 2014.
