Robert Amaya is a bilingual professional actor/singer in Miami with a background in theater. He has been privileged to perform regionally for classic productions such as “You Can’t Take It With You” and “A Midsummer’s Night Dream”; and for award winning musicals the likes of “Les Miserables” and “Miss Saigon”. He has also worked for the Walt Disney World Company as a member of the critically acclaimed, Voices of Liberty. Robert volunteers as a worship leader and children’s ministry actor at his church. He helped launch and organize “FamJamz”, a family ministry based on the “Think Orange” concept where families are encouraged to worship together and parents are equipped to be more involved in their children’s spiritual development.
He is married to his high school sweetheart, Colleen- also an actress and vocalist; and is the father of a young daughter, Sophia. He is the son of immigrant parents Roberto and Maria Amaya, who have previously been in full time ministry. He has one sister, Arlene, who is an educator at a Christian elementary school.
Robert is most recently known for his role as Javier in the new Sherwood Film, COURAGEOUS. He felt humbled and honored playing this character because it reminded him of his own father’s struggles to survive in a new country with a family.
Between projects, Robert travels across the nation singing and speaking at both English and Spanish churches, schools, and organizations about a variety of topics including fatherhood, honor and Christianity.
