Agim Kaba (born February 16, 1980, New York) is an American actor, artist and filmmaker of Albanian descent. He is perhaps best known for his Daytime Emmy-nominated role of Aaron Snyder on As the World Turns.
Kaba is an actor, artist and former footballer currently living in New York City.The third of four children born to Sal and Sally Kaba, his early interests were soccer and acting. While a student at Countryside High School in Florida, he was selected for Florida's Olympic Development soccer teams five years in a row. He later attended New York City's St. John's University, where he played soccer.
While a student at St. John's, Agim began as a double-major in Business and History before switching to Fine Arts, a decision that not only allowed him to hone his painting and drafting skills but would ultimately inspire him to pursue a career in television and cinema. After modeling for three years in New York and Milan, including a major campaign for Guess Jeans, Agim landed his first television role on CBS's As the World Turns in April 2002. In March 2004, the then 24–year old actor received his first Daytime Emmy nomination, in the category Outstanding Younger Actor in a Drama Series. Kaba continued to play the role of Aaron Snyder on the long-running daytime soap opera until April 2005, later returning to the series in June, 2007.
He has also made guest appearances on the television series Charmed and CSI: NY. Having already executive produced the award-winning short film Happy Ending, Agim landed starring roles in the low-budget horror films Haunted Forest and Neowolf before getting his big break on The Last Film Festival, where he worked opposite Dennis Hopper, Leelee Sobieski, and Chris Kattan. In 2010, he signed on to film Nomads, directed by Ricardo Benet, starring Luci Lui.
In 2012, Kaba co-starred on the ABC drama pilot Americana as Jordan, directed by Phillip Noyce. However, the pilot was not picked up.
