A native of Lakewood, Ohio, Ted Wass spent his early years there and later moved to Glen Ellyn, a suburb of Chicago. The son of John Wass, a retired pharmaceutical salesman, and Gail Wass, Ted has an older brother, Bob, who is an independent producer in Hollywood.
Wass attended Glenbard West High School, getting his first taste of the theatre when he appeared in the high school's play, "West Side Story."
He later began a distinguished three-year study at the Goodman Theatre in Chicago, graduating with honors and becoming the first male to receive the coveted Sarah Siddon's Award.
While at the Goodman Theatre, Ted appeared in the plays "Summer Brave," "Romeo and Juliet," "Country Scandal," "The Killer," "Summer of the 17th Doll" and "Funeral Games."
Wass went to New York City and was cast as the understudy for the leading role of Danny Zuko in "Grease." Following a six-month stint with the show, he moved to California and was featured in guest-starring roles in "Family," "The Nurses," and "Loves Me, Loves Me Not."
The talented Wass is not only an accomplished actor, but a trained singer and composer as well. He began dance training early in life and for eight years performed with a rock-and-roll band as lead singer and bass guitarist.
Ted's other interests include scuba diving and fencing. The 6'1" brown-eyed bachelor was born on October 27 and lives in Marina Del Rey, California.
