Greg Tarzan Davis is a former elementary school teacher and a TV and film actor. You can see him on screen in “Top Gun: Maverick,” in “Mission: Impossible 7” in July 2023, and currently as Dr. Jordan Wright in the hit TV series “Grey’s Anatomy.” He’s also at work on a major studio feature to be released in 2024. A New Orleans native, Davis was exposed to theater at a young age when his grandmother took him to local plays. He credits one of his high school teachers for encouraging his love for acting, which led to his debut as the lead in the play “By The Way Meet Vera Stark” in college. As he pursued a full-time acting career, Davis followed another of his passions – working with children. He became an elementary school teacher, but his desire to pursue acting became so great that he let his beloved students know he was headed to Los Angeles to become an actor. He made his film debut in 2020 in “The Call of the Wild,” starring Harrison Ford. Other credits include a recurring role on “Good Trouble,” and guest roles on "Chicago P.D.” and “All Rise.”
