Mini Bio (1)

Over Mark Povinelli's 20 year acting career, he has appeared in over 50 films and television shows, 25 theater productions and dozens of national commercials, proving himself capable of spanning the entire range of medium, style and genre...from New York Theater to Studio Films, from slapstick comedy to heartfelt drama, from broad caricature to quiet realism.

For most of the past decade, Mark has been touring the world as 'Torvald Helmer', in the OBIE award winning production of Mabou Mines Dollhouse (2009), an adaptation of Henrik Ibsen's classic. Other theater credits include the premiere of "Belle Epoque" at Lincoln Center as the lead role of 'Henri Toulouse-Lautrec'. Mark also has worked regionally at the Shakespeare Theater, Children's Theater Company, Radio City Music Hall, Oklahoma Lyric Theater, Will Geer Theatricum and UCLA Live.

When Mark is not working, he dedicates his time to Little People of America, an organization that promotes awareness, advocacy and medical assistance for individuals with forms of dwarfism.

Mark resides in Los Angeles with his wife and two children.

Personal Quotes (2)

[referencing his character in Water for Elephants (2011)] I can relate to Kinko's life on the fringes of society. While his situation is far more extreme than mine ever has been, I think being so physically different from birth always sets you up to live on the edges of society. You are constantly battling to own your space in the world.
My wife has always been crazy supportive. And she's not in the arts. She's a teacher. I think what attracted her to me was this actor side of me that wants to go off and try new things. But that's also the part that drives her crazy, because then I have to travel. It's been hard, but we've gotten through it.
