Conner Marx has traveled all over the world for a diversity of training and experience to enliven his work as a film and television actor. He received his B.A. in Drama from Vassar College in New York where he also performed as a fire juggler and acrobat in the Barefoot Monkeys Circus Troupe. Outside the States, Conner apprenticed in classical drama, dance, and puppetry at the Darpana Academy of Performing Arts in Ahmedabad, India, and later worked with the Fulbright Grant to develop and perform an original adaptation of Malaysian folktales in Kuala Lumpur. Since returning, he co-founded New Noise Performance, a physical theatre company based in New Orleans (where he also learned to make a mean jambalaya as the sous-chef of a Creole deli) before heading west and working full-time as a film and television actor.
Favorite credits include a recurring role on the Daytime Emmy Award-Winning Biz Kid$, TNT’s Leverage, A Bit of Bad Luck with Cary Elwes, and character modeling for the upcoming video game BioShock: Infinite. In 2012, Conner had four films premiere at the Seattle International Film Festival while others played in Vienna, Austin, New Orleans, and Los Angeles. Up next, he’ll be heading into production for the feature Lucky Them with Toni Collette.
Of all his passions as an actor, perhaps the greatest is his love of a good, well-timed pie-to-the-face.
