Tony Scarpelos was born in Dorchester, Massachusetts to the proud Greek parents Jeannie and Vlassi “Flash” Scarpelos. His early years were spent in restaurants, mostly sitting in the back kitchen on potato sacks by the ice machine watching “Flash” sling BLTs and cheeseburgers in downtown Boston. (Cheeburger! Cheeburger! No Coke, Pepsi!) His extended Greek family provided endless fodder for character studies, ranging from a bristly-mustached uncle who removed bottle caps with his teeth… to an adopted homeless brother with no teeth who routinely insisted he was being wrongly charged for the shooting of Adolf Hitler.
Tony started doing impressions from an early age, and further developed his innate talent with formal actor training at CP Casting in Boston. He later moved to Hollywood where he studied at the Beverly Hills Playhouse under Milton Katselas from 1999 to 2004. He’s done independent film, television, and commercial voice-over work and is excited about the diversity of creative projects currently on his radar.
