Straight out of college, Junior Cius hit the ground running landing a supporting role in Denzel Washington's "Equalizer 2" and a Co-star role in Showtime's original series "SMILF". Junior made the transition from stage to film/television shortly after creating his first ever short film entitled "It's All Good" with close friend and award winning director Thang Ho. Since then he has been creating his own projects between jobs.

 

Junior Cius majored in Theatre Arts, at the University of Massachusetts Boston, where  Cius continued to strengthen his on-camera skills with acting coach Michael Fennimore until 2018. Most recently, the actor enrolled in an on camera audition course with casting director Kyle Crand at CP Casting, a self tape training program with Emmy nominated Actor Dajuan Johnson and is now training in the Meisner technique with Jessica Houde at the Houde School of Acting. 

 

Aside from his acting career, Junior Cius is a professional dancer and choreographer. In 2015, he established his own dance company "Crewenex", dedicated to teaching students in Boston.  A year later, he was selected to learn and perform works taught by some of the pop and hip hop industries' most successful choreographers, in the Monsters of Hip Hop dance show.  Since then, he has traveled with these choreographers, assisting them in training other aspiring dancers. Cius then debuted his first international teaching tour, at the end of 2019, traveling throughout Europe. Junior Cius is a recipient of the Next Steps for Boston Dance grant, through which he plans to create projects that speaks to his community. He believes that the purpose of his art is to instill peace, cause understanding, demonstrate love, and to bring awareness to mental illness in the black community.

All work and business aside, Junior enjoys a good horror film, shooting photography, and traveling with friends. You can also catch him in an overly competitive game of flag football, bowling and connect four-he's particularly serious about connect four. Go Head, Challenge him!
