Guest TV Roles
Born in the Philippines and named after the Filipino revolutionary, general and actor Macario Sakay; Mig is the youngest of 6 children and grew up in Vancouver, Canada. Mig Macario is known for his ability to play a diverse range of characters with seemingly effortless ease.
If it wasn't for acting, he feels that he would have probably grown up being much like the gun toting, drug dealing characters he played on shows like 21 Jump Street, Wiseguy and The Commish. Macario was able to breakout from the usual thug roles when he played the lead - Song Liling in the Tony Award winning play M. Butterfly at the Arts Club Theatre. Mig's performance earned him a best newcomer nomination at The Jessie Richardson Awards. His producing, writing and directing debut was on the highly rated "Summer Love - The Documentary", which explored rave culture and aired on Much Music.
With nearly 25 years experience in the entertainment industry, he has appeared in over 40 Film and Television projects; working with artists such as Johnny Depp, Maury Chaykin, Paul Sorvino, Dean McDermott and super mom come activist Jenny McCarthy. Mig made history when he was cast as George Amahit on the Gemini award winning, dark comedy "Less Than Kind". It's the first comedic series regular role written specifically for a Filipino in Canada if not North America.
Recent projects find him recurring on not just one but two hit series! You'll see his familiar face on TV's blockbuster FRINGE for Fox and Nickelodeon's The Troop. He'll also be seen opposite Aaron Douglas (The Bridge, Battlestar Galactica) and a stellar cast including Emanuelle Vaugier (Two and a Half Men, CSI NY), Paul Campbell, Torrance Coombs, Andrew Airlie and Crystal Lowe in Killer Mountain airing on the SyFy network. From gang lord to Asian trans-gender diva spy to an overprotective Filipino father his performances are consistently creative, courageous and charismatic.
From comedies to drama, stage to screen and everything in between; Mig's unstoppable joy, enthusiasm and humanity add a unique depth to any project he works on. As a practicing Buddhist Mig in turn supports many youth and aspiring actors globally to realize their true potential.
