Gorgeous San Francisco Bay area native Marco Dapper arrived in Hollywood in 2003 and went right to work pursuing his passion of becoming a professional actor.
Originally of Hayward, California and the youngest of two children (he has an older sister), he was born on July 9, 1983.
Marco was first discovered by scouts for NBC and appeared on Meet My Folks. He didn’t really get into acting until high school.
While pursuing a career as an actor, he landed several European modelling assignments and more recently, a campaign for Levi's Jeans for the Asian market.
Marco wasted no time moving forward and in 2006, he landed his very first film role in the independent feature Eating Out 2: Sloppy Seconds (sequel to Allan Brocka's Eating Out). Marco plays the role of Troy in the movie, where he gets to show off his stunning physique through the movie. He was also cast in the movie Redefining Normal (2008).
Prior to getting the role, Marco was a UPS driver and was also going to a junior college at the same time doing theatre and some plays. Acting is what he always wanted to do, but he just never took it seriously. His family are all labourers, so he thought it just wasn’t in the cards for him.
Marco has appeared on such TV shows as 90210 (the new one), Dirty Sexy Money and the now defunct Veronica Mars.
He made Frontiers magazine cover. Interviewed by Greg Hernandez about how the film affected his view on gays, Marco answered: "It was actually a real eye-opener for me. I wasn’t involved in the gay community at all. I wasn’t homophobic—I used to go to the Castro District for Halloween—but it was a touchy subject. I didn’t really know many gay people at all except for a few teachers. But I started talking to the cast and getting to know everyone, and it opened my eyes to what the community is."
He studied Martial Arts for over 10 years and has a black belt in Tae-Kwon-Do. His actor training includes Doug Warhit and Lesly Kahn.
Marco was voted Man of the month in DNA Magazine in March 2008. He loves cooking and working out at the gym. He's also into music and listens to Rock, Reggae and Rap.
To stay in shape Marco works out rigorously. He is a healthy eater. He has been doing that since he was 18. He saw Marky Mark on an E! True Hollywood Story and decided then that he wanted a body like his!
Marco has worked with photographers such as Adam Bouska, Sonny Tong, Bradford Rogne.
