Steve Sandvoss was born in 1980 in New York City. He went to school in the "burbs" and in Connecticut. He originally had studied Chinese thinking about going into international business, but changed his mind later.
Steve Sandvoss grew up in the suburbs of New York City and attended school there and in Connecticut before enrolling at Harvard University. Studying at Harvard at the same time as Natalie Portman, he was active in the artistic community, pursuing amateur photography, studying poetry and American prose, and often choosing edgier roles in student-written plays as well as in such classics as Shakespeare (Romeo & Juliet, Julius Caesar) and Brecht (Galileo, Ba'al).
In addition, he directed readings of his own work at Harvard and wrote criticism and essays for several undergraduate periodicals. While at Harvard he commuted back and forth from New York City to pursue professional acting and modeling.
He graduated from Harvard with the distinction Cum Laude and now lives fulltime in Los Angeles. Fluent in Chinese, Steve has received study grants that have taken him to six continents. He is an avid outdoorsman, an inquisitive scholar, and a habitual non-conformist.
Fresh off the heels of his first starring role in the upcoming film Latter Days, Steve is poised to become a major and original force in Hollywood. Unafraid to delve into risky and controversial subject matter, Steve’s work is already a reflection of his relentless creative vision. Considering the early buzz about his work in this groundbreaking film, fans should expect more exciting projects from this rising young star.
