Born into a theatrical family in New York City (his mother, Jeanne Button, was a Broadway costume designer, and his father, Stephen Arnold Sbarge, was a writer, painter and filmmaker), Raphael Sbarge began acting at the age of 4, appearing in several episodes of Sesame Street (1969).
He has went on to appear in dozens of films, including Risky Business (1983), Independence Day (1996), Message in a Bottle (1999), Vision Quest (1985), Pearl Harbor (2001) and The Duel (2016). His resume includes more than 100 guest appearances and series regular roles on network television shows, among them Dr. Hopper and Jiminy Cricket on Once Upon a Time (2011); David Molk on Murder in the First (2014); and Jake Straka on The Guardian (2001). He has recurred on series including Star Trek: Voyager (1995), Dexter (2006) and Prison Break (2005).
Raphael has also worked behind the camera, directing and producing the streaming series Jenna’s Studio (2013) and On Begley Street (2013). He later turned his attention to documentaries, directing and producing Is There Hope for Planet Earth (2014) and A Concrete River: Reviving the Waters of Los Angeles (2015). His first narrative short film effort as a director, The Bird Who Could Fly (2017), earned best short honors from the Asians on Film and First Glance film festivals, and best narrative short honors and nominations from the DisOrient Film Festival and Asian American International Film Festival.
Raphael made his Broadway debut at the age of 16, in “The Curse of the Aching Heart”, opposite Faye Dunaway. His extensive theater experience includes four additional Broadway shows: “Ah Wilderness” with Jason Robards; “Shadow Box” with Mercedes Ruehl; “Voices in the Dark,” with Judith Ivey; and “Twilight of the Golds” (including the pre-Broadway national tour and the Kennedy Center).

Raphael has won the LA Drama Critics Award (for “Mad Forest” at the Matrix Theatre), the San Francisco Film Critics Circle Garland Award (lead performance in “Twilight of the Golds”) and the FANY Award (“Voices in the Dark”).
