Born on a Thursday to Jennifer Moore and Edmund Campbell on the beautiful island paradise of Jamaica, Edmund wanted his son to have a unique name. So he decided to name him after his favorite musician, the prolific Narada Michael Walden. Narada is also the name of a Vedic sage, known in Hindu traditions as a traveling musician and storyteller, who carries news and enlightening wisdom.

Narada discovered his love of acting in college. Although studying biomedical engineering at the University of Rochester, he was drawn to the school’s theater program.

To further develop his craft, Narada studied the Meisner technique at Maggie Flanigan Studio in NYC. Booking a wide variety of roles on shows including Jessica Jones, The Blacklist, Blindspot, Gotham, Bull, She’s Gotta Have It and many more, Narada continues to assemble a roster of roles that showcase him as an artist to watch.
