He attended the National Institute of Dramatic Art (NIDA) and Actor Centre Australia. He also continued his acting studies in Miami, Florida and Mexico City, Mexico.

He later appeared in the comedy show, “Casados con Hijos”, produced and broadcast by Sony Entertainment and Canal Caracol. Narváez appeared in the Colombian Telenovela, “Por Amor”, produced by Telecolombia in conjunction with Univision in 2006. He participated in “La Diosa Coronada” and “Los Herederos del Monte”, both produced and broadcast by Telemundo International.

In 2012, he worked in the Televisa series, “Como Dice el Dicho” and “La Rosa de Guadalupe”.While living in Australia, Narváez worked as a model for EMG Model Agency. In 2008, he worked with American-Haitian singer, Wyclef Jean, in the opening show of the MTV Awards Australia.Later in 2008, he appeared in an Australian reality show, “The Chopping Block”, which aired on the Nine Network and was produced by Granada Productions.

From being obese and bullied, to becoming one of Colombia's most beautiful men, Diego has held on to his dreams and promise of making something of himself someday. The once chubby and picked-on kid, is now a drop dead gorgeous model and television star. "You wouldn’t believe it now but back then, I had lots of bullies calling me names, making fun of my weight, the way I spoke and the things I liked at the time".

"I was badly bullied by my classmates, some neighbors and some family members. I suffered from eating disorders that caused obesity, and that was the biggest part of my problem. I must say, it was painful but my decision was to swallow the pain quietly, and instead getting back to the people who hurt me, I decided to change things I didn't like about myself. I must admit it has been a long interesting journey, with ups and downs like everything in life. But to get where I am, determination, drive, discipline, and hard work have been the clue to achieve the goals I always wanted to. I do not resent anyone because as I said “thanks to the way they treated me” look at me now. "
