Early life, family, educational background
American television, film and theatre actor Kevin Chamberlin, was born on 25 November 1963, in Baltimore, Maryland USA. He was raised in Moorestown, New Jersey after his family moved there when he was nine years old. He starred as Huck Finn in his elementary school’s production of “Tom Sawyer.” After matriculating from high school, he studied acting in New Brunswick, New Jersey at Rutgers University’s Mason Gross School of Arts, and graduated in 1985 with a BFA in acting.
According to Playbill, he consistently moves between television, theatre and films, because he gets bored with each acting form, especially after an unpleasant experience.
