Meet Noel Mirabal of Further Beyond Entertainment

Today we’d like to introduce you to Noel Mirabal.

Noel, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
So I was active duty in the United States Coast Guard from 2006 through 2014, so about eight years or so. When I finally ended my enlistment in 2014, I found myself at home, bored out of my mind, wondering “what now?” I was though at the time attending Miami Dade College in pursuit of a criminal justice degree.

Sooo…, one early morning, like around 3 am, out of the blue, I decided to google castings, and sure enough, I stumbled upon a casting notice in search of “people with military experience.” At the time I wasn’t gainfully employed, so I was like “what the heck,” and submitted my professional resume, and a not so sexy selfie. A week later I received an email on a Monday afternoon around 5 pm saying that I had an audition in Atlanta the next day Tuesday at 7 am. I was like “holy #%^*!”

I grabbed a small book bag, threw in a few shorts, socks, and underwear, got into this huge argument with my wife, and dipped. It was the strangest thing ever because it was like I was on autopilot, and up until that point in my life, I had never thought about acting. I drove ten hours straight to Atlanta, and once I arrived I spent three days auditioning in this military style boot camp fashion, which I was already used too. I slept in my car, and bathed and brushed my teeth whenever I paid for a day pass at a 24-hour fitness.

Finally, on the third day, I booked the part along with a small squad of other people. It was an amazing feeling. I was so excited that when I called my wife back home and told her the great news, I cried, and ever since that day I fell in love with acting, and never looked back, it’s all or nothing now, so there’s no plan b for me.

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc. – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
The biggest struggle or obstacle I’ve had to face was myself, or should I say my self-doubt. The wondering mind. The “what if?” thoughts. I now believe that you just have to say “#%^* it” and go for it, never look back, and just push forward no matter what.

We’d love to hear more about your business.
I am a full-time commercial, television, and film actor.

I recently worked in Discovery ID’s “Grave Mysteries,” Discovery ID’s “Deadline: Crime with Tamron Hall,” and recently appeared as a recurring character in the non-union comedy series “Hialeah.”

What sets me apart from everyone else is the combination of my “real life” experience and my dedication to the project, which in turn allow me to perform further beyond conventional acting.

What were you like growing up?
I was both an introvert and extrovert. More introvert though, I just knew how to talk to people when I had too. I daydreamed a lot as well. I was a huge comic and anime junkie.

I use to wake up very early Saturday morning to catch the anime movies they would show on the Sci-Fi channel. My family was and still is your typical crazy Cuban family, our conversations appear to resemble an ensuing brawl.
