Mark Povinelli has appeared in over 30 film/TV shows, and 25 professional theater productions. Mark toured the world as Torvald Helmer in the OBIE award winning production of Mabou Mines’ DollHouse. 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 Shakepseare Theater, Children’s Theater Company, Radio City Music Hall, Oklahoma Lyric Theater, Will Geer Theatricum and UCLA Live. Mark’s camera credits include guest starring roles on Cold Case, ‘Til Death, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Pushing Daisies, Charmed, Frasier, Dharma & Greg, and The Parkers. He will also be seen in the upcoming HBO series, Boardwalk Empire, produced by Martin Scorcese. Film credits include Epic Movie, Polar Express, Van Helsing, and Beer For My Horses.  Mark is currently filming the title role in The Liliput, a true story about a Polish little person who survived the Holocaust by hiding in trash cans.

Mark’s short stature adds to the richness of his acting experience. While he prefers to be known simply by his name, the term little person is acceptable and he is a member of Little People of America.  You can learn more about the organization at
