Taz Skylar: A Rising Star on the Global Stage

Hailing from the Canary Island of Tenerife, Taz Skylar, born Tarek Yassin Skylar on December 5, 1995, is a versatile Spanish actor and screenwriter who has made his mark on the bustling theatre and film scene in London. His remarkable journey in the world of entertainment includes the success of a self-written off-West-End play, "Warheads," and the creation of the Amazon Prime hit "Gassed Up." But perhaps, one of his most anticipated roles is Sanji in the highly-anticipated Netflix series, "One Piece" (2023).

Born to a culturally diverse background, Skylar's heritage boasts a Lebanese father and an English mother from Yorkshire. His life's narrative didn't start on the stage, but rather crafting surfboards when he was just 15, following his departure from high school. Skylar had a pivotal moment when an attempt to join the British Army as a reservist was thwarted by medical tests due to a concussion resulting from a car accident. The setback provided the runway for him to venture into writing and acting, a decision that would alter his life's course.

EARLIER CAREER

Taz Skylar's career embarked on its trajectory in the United Kingdom, where he ventured into acting through a series of modest yet significant roles. The initial phases of his filmography encompass appearances in short films such as "Venom" and "Beautiful" in 2015. His credits continued to grow with the portrayal of David in "Trophy" (2016), culminating with the character of Caps in "The Reserves" from 2018 to 2019, which he not only acted in but also wrote and produced.

FURTHER HIGHLIGHTS

2018 saw Skylar branch into the director's chair with his directorial debut, the short film "Multi-Facial." His ambition didn't stop there, and the subsequent year marked his feature film debut with "The Kill Team," wherein he played the role of Sergeant Dawes. The journey in the film world continued with his roles as Marty in "Lie Low" and Betim in the short film "Final Gift." In 2020, Skylar took on the character of Jason in "Villain," and in 2022, he graced the screen as Harry Beam in two episodes of "Agatha Raisin."


But perhaps the zenith of his career, so far, arrived in 2023, with the confirmation of his role as Sanji in the highly-anticipated Netflix series, "One Piece." A testament to his talent and dedication, this milestone marks Skylar's step into the big leagues.

CURRENT HIGHLIGHTS

And the future holds more promise for this talented actor, as he's set to join the cast of the 2024 thriller "Cleaer," starring alongside Daisy Ridley, further cementing his presence in the ever-evolving world of entertainment. Taz Skylar's journey is a testament to resilience, determination, and the transformative power of art to transcend cultures and continents.
