Joey Vieira (born 1989) is a Latin American film and TV actor[1][2] best known for his appearances in Reef Break,[3] Romance On The Menu,[4] Dora and The Lost City of Gold[5] and Spiderhead.[6][7] Vieira rose to prominence after starring in Josh Tanner's highly acclaimed sci-fi horror short film Decommissioned, which went viral and received over 119 thousand views online.[8]

Vieira has been in the entertainment industry for over two decades now and has played integral roles in a number of film and TV shows including Texas Rising, The Bureau of Magical Things, and Young Rock to name a few. As of 2022, Vieira’s net worth is estimated to be $4M – $6M USD, which positions him to be one of the fastest-rising Latin American actors.[9][10]

Early life and education

Vieira was born in 1989 in California to José Vieira and Rosa Vieira. Vieira was a member of the Livingston High School’s band and choir. He participated in a number of sports activities as well including baseball, football, track & field, wrestling and was also a member of the student body government. It was during this time, he started ballet which kindled his interest in musical theater and sparked his passion for stage and drama.[11]

Vieira was able to understand Latin-American culture as a result of growing up in a predominantly Mexican neighborhood in the Central Valley. He grew up in Livingston, California, a tiny farming village, but later traveled to Los Angeles and Australia to pursue acting.[12][13]

When he moved to Los Angeles, he continued his studies at California State University of Northridge, where he earned a BA degree with an emphasis in drama. The Meisner Technique was next studied at the Joanne Baron D.W. Brown Studio, followed by audition techniques with Brian Reise.[14]


In 1995, Vieira began his career as a commercial actor.[15] A year later, he made his television debut in Pacific Blue, with actress Maria-Elena Laas, as a wealthy high school student. Some of his early credits include Strong Medicine (2001), Fastlane (2003), Kitchen Confidential (2005), and The Shield. Before coming to Australia, he also appeared as a guest star in season 25 of The Simpsons (2014).[16][17]

Vieira landed a role in the 2015 blockbuster film San Andreas starring Dwayne Johnson shortly after landing in Australia.[18] After that, he acted alongside Daniel Radcliffe in Jungle, followed by a Chinese action comedy called At Last released in 2019, and finally, he played Nico in Dora and the Lost City of Gold[19][20] that same year. A year later he starred in the films Romance on the Menu[21] and Bloody Hell and in 2021 worked alongside Jason Clarke and Jai Courtney in the 2022 film Black Site and then Escape from Spiderhead as Miguel, alongside Miles Teller and Chris Hemsworth.[22]

Throughout his career, Vieira has also appeared in a number of indie Australian short films, including Confession, How Not To Teach, Five Moons of Pluto, Decommissioned, and Jeff Horn's Slugger.[23] Vieira also starred in Serena (2019), a short film he co-wrote with Alexandra MacDonald, in 2019.[24] Apart from that, Vieira has also appeared in multiple episodes of Texas Rising: The Lost Soldier,[25] the ABC series Reef Break,[26][27] and season 2 of How to Stay Married[28] broadcast by Network 10.[29][30]
