Jon Vellante (He/Him/His)

Actor - Boston, MA


Jon Vellante, Headshot - Much Ado.jpg

Jon Vellante is a 26 year old actor living in Somerville, Massachusetts. He graduated Boston University in 2016 with a BFA in acting and studied physical performance at the Accademia Dell'Arte in Arezzo, Italy. Despite any seriousness presented on this page, he's a goof at heart (and perhaps even a bit of a clown when he wants to be). 


As an actor, Jon loves being able to support new work while gaining new perspectives. Questions that interest him - is this story accessible? Is it important to hear at this moment in time? Could people walk away with their minds changed on an issue? And perhaps most importantly, do these characters accurately reflect the shifting world we live in? Acting is also fun (once in a while). 


As the pandemic has effectively shuttered live theatre in Boston for the time being, Jon has been making the transition from stage to film and virtual projects. Explore this site to see future endeavors, to say hello, or just to look at too many pictures of his face. In 2021, he became newly represented by Maggie Inc. and is excited to work with such a great team dedicated to Boston-area film, tv and commercial work. He's been hunkering down fairly well throughout the pandemic with his cat Nora and will someday learn to unmute himself when it's his turn to talk.
