Born and raised in California, Cibrian began his acting career at the age of twelve by landing a national Coca-Cola commercial on his very first audition. A number of other commercials soon followed before Cibrian suspended his acting career during high school to pursue his other passion - sports.
He achieved several All-State honors in a variety of sports and continued the momentum when he enrolled in UCLA's football program in 1991. When an injury his freshman season sidelined the budding talent, he returned to acting. Cibrian again appeared in several national commercials before winning a starring role in Malcolm-Jamal Warner's Emmy Award-winning television special, Kids Killing Kids.
The attention Cibrian garnered for his appearance on Warner's special led to several soap opera auditions, one of them for the role of Nick Newman on The Young and the Restless. While the show's producers deemed him too old for the part, they created a character specifically for Cibrian - the conniving Matt Clark, a character so popular he signed on for a three-year run.
After two seasons on the daytime drama, Cibrian starred on The Bold and the Beautiful and Baywatch Nights as well as multiple episodes of Beverly Hills, 90210, Sabrina, the Teenage Witch and Saved by the Bell: The College Years. During his run on Sunset Beach, he also starred in the telefilm, Logan's War: Bound by Honor.
The actor made a memorable feature film debut in Living Out Loud as Holly Hunter's masseur. Cibrian also appeared as himself in a cameo role in the Lifetime movie Jackie's Back, and was seen in the independent feature But, I'm A Cheerleader opposite Natasha Lyonne and Clea DuVall. He also starred in the NBC/Hallmark Entertainment biblical miniseries In the Beginning.
