Sebastian Stan was born on August 13, 1982 (Sebastian Stan age: 37) in Constanța, Romania to Georgeta Orlovschi. Orlovschi and Stan’s father divorced when he was two years old. (Star Wars star Mark Hamill has responded to jokes about him being Stan’s “real” father due to their resemblance.) Stan moved with his mother when Orlovschi found employment as a pianist in Vienna, Austria. Orlovschi later married Anthony Fruhauf, who became Stan’s stepfather. Stan and his mother moved to Rockland County, New York, where he spent the rest of his childhood.


Stan attended Rockland County Day School, where his stepfather Fruhauf was the headmaster. Stan was involved in several school productions as well as the Stagedoor Manor summer camp. In 2001, Stan entered the Mason Gross School of the Arts at Rutger’s University where he studied acting under William Esper, Kevin Kittle, and Barbara Marchant. He graduated in 2005.


Stan’s first film role was one as a child extra in 71 Fragments of a Chronology of Chance. He did not make any more appearances onscreen until 2003 when he landed a role in an episode of Law & Order while attending college. He also appeared in Tony & Tina’s Wedding (2004) and Red Doors (2005) during his schooling.

After graduation from the Mason Gross School of the Arts, he began to land more prominent roles, including Martin Waters in The Architect (2006), Chase Collins in The Covenant (2006) and Leo in The Education of Charlie Banks (2007).

In 2007, Stan started appearing in the cult favorite Gossip Girl series as Carter Baizen. He appeared in a total of 11 episodes from 2007 to 2010, allowing him exposure to a greater audience. In 2009, Stan had a leading role as Jack Benjamin in the television series Kings. In 2010, Stan acted in the thriller Black Swan and Hot Tub Time Machine.

In 2011, he made his first appearance in a Marvel film; Stan played James “Bucky” Barnes in Captain America: The First Avenger alongside Chris Evans and Hayley Atwell. In 2014, he had a larger role as The Winter Soldier in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. He played Bucky Barnes/The Winter Soldier in Captain America: Civil War (2016), Black Panther (2018), Avengers: Infinity War (2018), and Avengers: Endgame (2019). His role as Barnes/The Winter Soldier gained him mainstream attention and fame. Stan has a relatively large fanbase, despite having never had a leading role in a Marvel film.
