Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Once a charming child star, Arjay Smith has evolved into a nimble, expressive, and dependable character actor. Shortly after breaking onto the kid-friendly television scene with a recurring part on the unruly classroom sitcom "Nick Freno: Licensed Teacher," he landed his first lead role as a suburbanized extraterrestrial on Nickelodeon's otherworldly "The Journey of Allen Strange."
