DEREK MAGYAR: AN ARTIST'S ARTIST

By Jennifer Buonantony

Some people can act, some people can write, some people can direct, but a rare few can transition seamlessly between these art forms. One exception to this rule is mult-talented artist Derek Magyar who made his mark as an actor and is now producing and directing both theater and film. But his biggest achievement, perhaps, is giving back to the community of artists in Los Angeles through his involvement as a CalArts alumni and his latest project AuditionLoft.com.

Magyar realized his passion for acting at a young age, influenced by his filmmaker father and his mother, the head of an artist colony. You may recognize him from his breakout role as "X" in Boy Culture which premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival, or from his film roles in projects including Train opposite Thora Birch and Fencewalkers directed by Chris Carter. Or perhaps you are a fan of his role as Commader Kelby on Star Trek or his appearances on popular shows including Criminal Minds, Boston Legal, and CSI.
