Ari'el Stachel (born July 29, 1991)[1] is an American actor. He won the 2018 Tony Award for Featured Actor in a Musical for his role in The Band's Visit.[2][3]

Early life

Stachel was born and raised in Berkeley, California. His father, the son of Yemenite Jewish immigrants, grew up in Israel; his mother, Laura Stachel, is an Ashkenazi Jew from New York. The two met on a kibbutz.[4] Stachel has said that while growing up, he was uncomfortable with his ethnic heritage. His parents divorced when he was young, and he adopted his mother's last name in part to avoid being associated with his father's Middle Eastern background. He was in fifth grade when the 9/11 terror attacks occurred, and rather than be identified as part Arab, he told friends he was half black.[5][6][7]

Stachel had his first role in a school musical at age 15, after which he left Berkeley High School to attend the Oakland School for the Arts.[5] He went on to study drama at the NYU Tisch School of the Arts.


Following graduation, Stachel landed several stage roles and appeared on the CBS drama Blue Bloods and the Netflix series Jessica Jones before reading the script for The Band's Visit. He auditioned seven times over nine months before landing the role,[5] for which he received Lortel Award and Drama Desk Award nominations before winning the Tony Award.[8] In an emotional acceptance speech, Stachel thanked his parents, acknowledging his long struggle to accept his heritage, and expressed his joy at being part of a generation able to represent Middle Easterners in a positive fashion. "I want any kid that's watching to know that your biggest obstacle may turn into your purpose", he said.[9] In 2019, Stachel began starring in the LGBT fantasy podcast The Two Princes as Prince Amir.[10]

In 2020, Stachel became a recurring cast member on Law & Order: SVU as Sergeant Hasim Khaldun.[11]

Stachel appeared 2021 film Zola as Sean, the title character's fiancé.[12]
