Welcome to CurtCornelius.com...
Born and raised in the heart of Southern California, Curt fell for the arts at the very young age of nine years old. His affinity for the magic of cinema was sparked sometime in between the seventh and eighth time he saw "E.T. The Extra Terrestrial" in his local movie theatre...Needless to say, that magic, or calling if you will, has yet to let go of his imagination. Through his acting & creativity, Curt found an outlet to truly be himself and a safe environment in which to do so.
His journey commenced on the stages of South Coast Repertory. He first began as a student in their classrooms, and later performed as a young actor in their productions. Curt's most notable roles on SCR's Main Stage were that of Young Scrooge in "A Christmas Carol" & Michael in "The Twelve Dancing Princesses".
His career in Hollywood followed shortly thereafter. With the help of a dear family friend, Curt found himself with representation in no time. Hence, his quest to put his talents to the test was underway. With additional training & persistence, Curt worked consistently as a professional actor throughout his teenage years.
Upon Graduating with Honors from Edison High School in Huntington Beach, Curt decided to further enrich his mind. He attended the University of California at Los Angeles, and four years later he graduated from UCLA with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in English Literature.
Post college, Curt fully resumed his acting career once again. However, this time, as an adult.
His filmography includes Feature Films, Animated Features, Made for TV Movies, Episodic Television, Video Games, Web Series, Short Films, Commercials, Radio Ads & New Media.
Curt has studied with South Coast Repertory, Karen Hensel, John de Lancie, Diane Doyle, Martha McFarland, Terrance Hines, Jeffrey Hutchinson, and most notably, Julie Ariola.
Curt is very grateful to be a working professional in the entertainment industry. He loves his craft and realizes just how blessed his life has been thus far.
