Alfonso Johnson is an actor/filmmaker who was born and raised in the greatest city in the world,Queens, NY.

Alfonso has trained at the prestigious William Esper Studio and is an alum of the Labyrinth Theater Company’s Master Class. Although Alfonso has been performing since adolescence, it was in his sophomore year of college that he truly found his calling and made the transition from full time student to full time aspiring actor…not an easy road to take.
