Born and raised in working class Providence, Rhode Island Christopher Aquino Stanley is one of five brothers. Chris became interested in acting as a teenager, but he could never muster the courage to audition for the school plays he loved to attend. "It just wasn't something you did in my neighborhood, not unless you wanted to be harassed daily."Much to his surprise, it was Chris' father who encouraged him to pursue his interest in acting. Instilled with his father's blue collar work ethic and his mother's creative instinct, he began to imagine a more artistic life for himself beyond the confines of his Italian/Irish upbringing in New England.Years later, Chris moved to Los Angeles. He studied acting at the prestigious Loft Studio with Peggy Feury and Bill Traylor. He also studied with Jose Quintero and Bobby Lewis of the Actors Studio.Chris has worked extensively in both film and television with notable performances in the critically acclaimed shows NYPD BLUE and MAD MEN.
