Chris Connell, born in 1986, in Long Island, New York, USA, is an American actor and model.

Growing up, Connell had always been interested in acting. From impersonating other actors in the car during family trips, to making home movies of his own using neighborhood kids as actors, his interest in the art became evident.

Success came early, having booked his first audition. Connell found himself as the lead in a “KFC” commercial.

Since then, Connell has booked numerous guest appearances on both daytime dramas “All My Children,” and “As The World turns.” He also caught the eye of MTV where he guest starred several times on the popular music countdown shows “TRL (Total Request Live),” and “The Big Ten.”
