I'm a Colorado kid creating in NYC!
On my way to being a NYC based artist I studied a little at the Lucid Body House, Stella Adler Studios, and the Guildhall School in London, and I studied a lot at Princeton University '17.
I'm an actor who enjoys performing in pre-existing stories as much as I do making my own, so you'll see a mix of stage/screen acting, as well as stage/screenwriting on my site.
My favorite credits are playing Macbeth in Macbeth and Trigórin in The Seagull at Princeton, as well as writing/directing Autumn Leaves, a full-length play exploring love and our agency in creating it.
I received the Tim Vasen Award for dedication, passion, risk taking and exceptional accomplishment in theater as an undergraduate, as well as the Alan S. Downer Award for an exceptional senior thesis in Drama.
“Sticks and Stones” written by Ross Barron, Produced by Neymarc Visuals
I’m currently acting for Neymarc Visuals in my short film “Sticks and Stones”. It’s the story of a Vietnam draftee caught sneaking out of the house by his younger brother. The boys struggle, each trying to be more brave than his brother, but in the end they can’t part ways without expressing their love and hope. I’m playing the older brother in the film - look for it in the new year!
While you’re waiting, check out the amazing work being done at Neymarc Visuals. Their latest work, “Happy Valentine’s Day” (posted below), garnered over 1,000,000 views on Facebook, played at movie theaters, and won more than its fair share of awards.
Autumn Leaves is a love story with too many authors. Artie, a screenwriter, and Will, his character, find themselves at odds in how they think their story should end. Will will do everything he can to change the fate that's been written for him, and Artie will try to stop him because that's not how it happened. What neither of them realize is that it's not up to them; it's up to Autumn - the woman they both love.
Autumn Leaves saw a November 2018 showing in the lounge at Dixon Place.

"Ross Barron's play, '[Work in Progress]', is a funny, touching, clever, and deeply theatrical exploration of creativity, autonomy, and romance."

"In addition to being a most dedicated artist, he is a quiet leader and encourages others to stretch and grow... He is smart without pretension, assertive with grace, modest without bashfulness, and has the capability to achieve transformative creative expression."
"Ross was a terrific collaborator, a company leader, the kind of performer who raises the bar for everyone he is working with through his dedication, work ethic, and infectious good humor."
"Kudos to Ross Barron (Messenger) for bounding down the stairs with action-villain energy. Don't break a leg!"

"Not only was he a great guy, but he was very professional and supportive on set. I look forward to working with him again."
Review of Spider's Web
"Ross Barron, a Princeton graduate who has already studied theater at Stella Adler in this country and Guildhall School in London, handles the tricky role of the inspector with great authority, completely commanding several scenes."
Review of Spider's Web
"Barron and Milla have the challenge of being two completely different characters. They're convincing enough that I wasn't sure they weren't different actors."
