Ayala the Actor

By Cybastian Dilinila

Most students know simply as Mr. Ayala as history teacher that does nothing more than teacher stuff in his spare time.  But what very few know is that Mr. Ayala is a part-time actor in his spare time.

Acting has always been part of Mr. Ayala’s  life. He started acting acting at a very young age, following his mother’s footsteps. She was a small-time actor that took on minimal roles in local productions in order to help support their family.  

His earliest memory of his acting career was in the second grade where he played a rock in a school play and only had one line, but struggled to blurt out the one line he was supposed to say. He didn’t really have any intentions of pursuing acting, but it was his experiences in college that allowed him to come to the realization that acting was something he really wanted to do. He and his group of friends went to the theater department in their spare time, but something sparked and the rest is history.

For the last 20 years, acting has stayed a part of Mr. Ayala’s life. Mr. Ayala said, “I have a fondness for public speaking and saw acting as a good extension from his stressful life”.

Mr. Ayala has many reputable roles under his belt. He’s played Lord Darlington, a sleazy aristocrat that tried to seduce a woman out of marriage in “Lady Windermere’s Fan” by Oscar Wilde. He enjoyed taking part in a local musical review “Summer of Love”. Lastly, he was part of the initial California premiere of the play “All the Way” that inspired HBO to create an original movie entitled “All the Way”.
