Shirville Jarvis is an Antiguan male actor/ model spotted by an agent while working at a McDonalds in New York City during fashion week. The now established “sexy boy” was born in All saints Village, Antigua W.I. and grew up in a household with six siblings. As a teenage boy, he was very shy since he was made fun of due to his dark complexion. In spite of this, Shirville Jarvis was never a follower and ultimately became the popular Adonis that he is today.
Shirville Jarvis has faced many triumphs and challenges throughout his life. When he was just 10 years old, Mr. Jarvis was called to represent his country’s soccer team and became the left footed star of the team. At 13 yrs old, he moved to the States to live with his dad and moved out at 17 to find his own way. Shirville Jarvis describes himself as a true mix of both his mom and dad’s personalities and believes this feature attracts people to him. His ability to talk and relate with people makes others comfortable and is an attribute that Mr. Jarvis feels has helped him succeed in his career. Shirville Jarvis is not an over the top, conceited model/actor and continues to keep his feet grounded.
Shirville Jarvis’ acting and modeling career started when he spoke to his brother, worldwide known, international reggae grammy winning artist, Bajja Jedd about his aspirations. As a result, Mr. Jarvis was introduced to several of his brother’s colleague reggae artists such as Screechi Dan, Red Fox, Shaggy, Rayvon, Mr. Easy and NY #1 street promoter Tree(Aka Thomas Reid) and soon after began modeling and promoting locally. On a cold day in frigid February waters of the same year, Shirville Jarvis had one of his best photoshoots with photographer Geisha De Loca photography. This shoot lead to Shirville being selected as a runway model for Phashionable Loud Inc plus appearances in Bogie Management’s artist Donny Yardas tour and Irie jam.
