Evan Bass grew up in the Boston area, making believe and using his imagination like all kids do. He just decided not to shake it as he (air quotes) grew up (end air quotes).
He acted in elementary school; favorite roles include that little kid singing that verse from Day-O and W.E.B. Dubois, yup, he was breaking stereotypes from a young age. Evan performed throughout high school, balancing his academics, sports, and acting. He then matriculated to Columbia University where he studied psychology and political science, among other things, and though he did perform in a few plays, academics and competing for a Division I. Track program took most of his time.
He attended the WARD Studio in New York City for acting, and studied at the Upright Citizens Brigade and the Magnet Theater for improv. He performs regularly with his indie improv team Ghost Fight Improv. His most memorable role to date is his character Rod on the acclaimed Web series We Need Girlfriends. It often confuses people who have watched the series, but he is really a very nice person.
Evan is an avid nerd at heart, can teach almost any high school subject, and starts far too many DIY projects that involve way too much self-teaching to be practical or time efficient. But this endless curiousity and love of adventure is what drives him in his approach to every role. It is the curiousity of who the person is, what makes him special, and why he would do the things people have him do in a script that draws Evan to acting and the characters he gets the opportunity to take on. Psychology is about how an individual thinks; Poli-Sci is about how countries or organized bodies relate; acting is yet another perspective from which to think about the human condition.
Along with acting, Evan writes and produces. He does so possibly because he has too much of that curiousity or too much of an imagination. But then, Einstein didn't say, "Dullness and inactivity were more important than knowledge."
