Zavien Garrett

Zavien Garrett is a happy person with a goal in life to spread positive energy everyday. Amidst the negative energy that can be prevalent in the world, he knows a smile can go a long way. He is fed by his passions: music, dance and acting.

Growing up, Zavien’s father introduced him to hip hop with a constant soundtrack of Notorious B.I.G, Tupac, Kanye West, and Kendrick Lamar playing. Hip hop had a great influence on his life and is what fuelled him to want to start dancing. Zavien joined his first hip hop class at the age of 10. He found a love for it, made many friends and at the age of 13 his studio director asked Zavien if he would like to join their high intensity “Half Day” program for the dancing elite. He ended up training in in that program in ballet, jazz, lyrical, modern, broadway, contemporary and hip hop dance until the age of 17, winning numerous awards and accolades along the way.

Zavien began his acting career after being signing with da Costa Talent in Vancouver, Canada in 2017. After building experience as a dancer on camera in Descendants 3 (Disney), A Cinderella Story: Christmas Wish and Julie and the Phantoms (Netflix), he made his acting debut in Are You Afraid Of The Dark? (Nickelodeon). Other credits include a recurring role in Chilling Adventures of Sabrina (Netflix), Home Before Dark (AppleTV+), and a supporting role in the independent film Golden Delicious directed by Jason Karman.

In the search for other great ways to continue to explore his creativity, Zavien found rapping. He loves to write and freestyle rap out of love and respect for the culture of hip hop. In 2021 he played Reggie in The Flash (CW) and was able to bring that love of rap to the screen.

In his off time, Zavien plays soccer and basketball, maintains his fitness with daily walks and work outs, watches films and television, and loves playing video games- namely Mario Kart. He does his best to live in the moment and practices gratitude every day.
