A New York City native who had more film and theater experience by the age of 15 than many actors could aspire to in a lifetime, Connor Paolo appeared in numerous television commercials before making the transition to Broadway in The Full Monty and playing a younger version of actor Kevin Bacon's character in Clint Eastwood's Oscar-winning Mystic River. Back in the B.C. era, Paolo could be seen portraying a young Alexander in director Oliver Stone's Alexander before continuing his partnership with the director as the son of Nicolas Cage's character in World Trade Center. On the small screen, Paolo's roles on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit and Gossip Girl also helped to build the foundation for an enduring career in television that started to yield fruit with a major role on the series Revenge.
