Darryl Stephens (born March 7, 1974, Pasadena, California) is an American actor. He is best known for playing Noah Nicholson on the television dramedy Noah's Arc.

Biography

Stephens grew up in the Altadena and Pasadena areas of Los Angeles, California. He attended the University of California, Berkeley where he studied sociology and ethnic studies along with drama and dance before earning a Bachelor's Degree in American Culture Studies. He performed for four years in San Francisco with the cult theater troupe Sassymouth before returning to Los Angeles to pursue a film and television career. He also worked with the Berkeley Black Theater Workshop.

Back in L.A., Stephens appeared on the sexy late-night serial MTV's Undressed, the short-lived series That's Life, and VH1's Red Eye. During the same period, he was also appearing in various commercials for products such as Dockers and performing in small theater venues and scene study classes. He also played a "future funked" Greta in a Hollywood revival of the well-known play Bent.

Stephens had supporting roles in the films Seamless (with Shannon Elizabeth), Not Quite Right, and Circuit. However, his breakout role came in 2004, when independent filmmaker Patrik-Ian Polk cast him as the lead character for the new series Noah's Arc. The original intention was for the show to be released direct-to-DVD after it had received rave reviews at various film festivals. However, in the fall of 2005, LOGO picked up Noah's Arc, which debuted on October 19. Upon the end of the series, it was announced that there would be feature film version, in which Stephens will presumably star.

By the end of 2006, Stephens had completed roles in the comedy Another Gay Movie and the drama Boy Culture, the latter alongside newcomer Derek Magyar. His next film, scheduled for release in 2008, is Bolden!, a biographical film about a cornet player in which he plays Frank Lewis.

Although Stephens is reticent to discuss his personal life, he acknowledges he is gay and that his roles sometimes transcend issues of classism and sexuality.[1][2] He stated in an interview with Keith Boykin that he was dating someone.[3]
