Connor Paolo is perhaps best known for his portrayal of the adolescent Alexander the Great in Oliver Stone's Alexander - that is, besides his recurring role as Eric van der Woodsen on Gossip Girl.

Connor began acting at the age of nine, first appearing on the soap opera All My Children. He first came to wide attention when he played Zachary Connor, a preteen murderer-rapist in an episode of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.

He made his motion picture debut in Clint Eastwood's Oscar-nominated Mystic River, playing Young Sean. In 2004, Paolo was a recurring player in the daytime soap opera One Life To Live as Travis O'Connell.

Connor Paolo recently made a second appearance on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, as Teddy Winnock, a disturbed teenager (based on the real case of Justin Berry). His most recent motion picture role was Steven McLoughlin in World Trade Center for Oliver Stone in 2006.

Revenge Quotes

In my lifetime, I've come to understand that there are three ways for a person to disappear. The first is to die. The second is to lie. And the last is to be reborn. It was after my former husband's six months ago that my transformation began. I made my peace with those who have wronged me and with those who I've wronged. No one moreso than Emily Thorne.

[to Margaux] Someone once told me it's our decisions that define who we are. Well, you've got a decision to make.
