Adam McArthur was raised in the small town of Pinole, California with his parents and three siblings.
Growing up as an 80’s kid, McArthur was always inspired by the classic cartoons on TV. He was always begging his parents for an agent to combine his love for cartoons, acting and voice overs. At the age of 16, he finally got his chance and started taking acting classes in San Francisco. His talent quickly grabbed the attention of an agent and went on to book 30 radio commercials over the course of one summer for Macy’s.
McArthur is currently the lead voice of Marco Diaz in the hit Disney XD animated comedy series Star vs.
the Forces of Evil. His character is a misunderstood bad boy who befriends Star Butterfly, played by Eden Sher. Marco helps protect the magical princess and her family’s heirloom wand while being pulled into an adventure of a lifetime with his new friend. The voice cast also features Jeffrey Tambor as “Glossaryck”, and Jenny Slate as “Pony Head”. The show was recently ranked as one of Google’s “Top Trending Comedy TV Shows of 2017” and the third season is airing now. The series has also garnered critical acclaim, earning three Annie Award nominations and one Behind the Voice Actors Award. McArthur is also known for his
recurring voice work in the original animated series The LeBrons, from the mind of the NBA legend LeBron James. He has also lent his voice to two Emmy Award-winning shows, Cartoon Network’s Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Netflix’s The Adventures of Puss in Boots.
In addition to his voiceover work on the small screen, McArthur has also brought his talent to the world of gaming, including Ubisoft’s recently-announced Far Cry 5 and Final Fantasy Type-0, where he plays the mysterious hooded figure known as Joker.
McArthur stays busy outside of acting as a successful entrepreneur. He has owned and operated an event photography company, The Booth and Bus Company, for nearly a decade. The company offers traditional photo booth design as well as a selection of uniquely designed booths built inside vintage VW buses. They have earned a devoted following of A-list clientele from their work at corporate and entertainment events throughout Los Angeles.
Outside of acting, McArthur enjoys practicing martial arts. He teaches Kung Fu and Judo, which he has three black belts in. In addition to martial arts, McArthur is a big fan of UFC and watching Ping Pong tournaments. He resides in Los Angeles and you can usually find him in his favorite boba shop.
