Nicolas Kent "Nick" Stahl (born December 5, 1979)[1] is an American actor. Starting out as a child actor, he gained recognition for his performance in the 1993 film The Man Without a Face and then embarked on a successful career as a child actor. He later transitioned into his adult career with roles in Bully, Sin City, In the Bedroom, the HBO series Carnivàle, and the film Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, in which he took over the role of John Connor, originally played by Edward Furlong. He also recently starred in the film Mirrors 2.


Personal life

Stahl was born in Harlingen, Texas, the son of Donna Lynn, a brokerage assistant.[2] He was raised in Plano and Richardson. He travels for filming and currently lives in Austin, Texas, with his wife, Rose, and baby daughter, Marlo Stahl.


The 1993 film The Man Without a Face, co-starring Mel Gibson, helped boost his career at the age of 13. His first professional casting was in Stranger at My Door, although he had been acting in children's plays since he was four years old.

Recent films include How to Rob a Bank (2007), Sleepwalking (2008), Quid Pro Quo (2008). Stahl has played two villains: Bobby Kent in the film Bully and Roark Jr./Yellow Bastard in Sin City.

Stahl did not reprise his role as John Connor in Terminator Salvation. Instead Christian Bale took over. Stahl noted the film's concept as a "a jump to the future, so my character will be quite a bit older."[3] Stahl starred as Max Matheson in the sequel to Mirrors, directed by Victor Garcia[4] and penned by Matt Venne.[5]
