Joe Vaz

Actor

Joe Vaz is a South African-based actor, writer, and musician who has spent most of his life working on stage, film and television.

With over 70 credits to his name, Joe has worked with the likes of Gore Verbinksi, Ed Neumeier, Neil Marshal and Neil Gaiman, and starred opposite Hayley Atwell, Karl Urban, Danny Trejo, Idris Elba and Benedict Cumberbatch, to name a few.

From family films and comedy to splatter-fest science fiction, he is no stranger to genre pictures. His credits include Big Joe in DREDD, Rocco in DEATH RACE 2, Claus in LOST BOYS: THE THIRST, Dodger in “Resident Evil” and Urdo von Pew in BBC America’s adaptation of Terry Pratchett’s “The Watch”. He even turns up in CRITTERS ATTACK! and Syfy Channel’s short-lived, but brilliant, “Vagrant Queen”.

In Street Trash, Joe plays CHEF, Ronald’s (Sean Cameron Michael) best friend, side-kick and “mom” all rolled into one. CHEF is one of the more grounded characters that make up the film’s rag-tag homeless family, providing heart and humour in equal measures.

Joe's band 'ten Athlone' also provides some of the songs featured in STREET TRASH.
