  Summary  

Vincent Paul Kartheiser is an American actor known for playing Connor in Angel and Pete Campbell in Mad Men.

  Biography  

 early life
Kartheiser was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota, the son of Janet Marie (née Gruyé) and James Ralph Kartheiser. The youngest of six children, he has four sisters, Andrea, Colette, Elise and Theresa, and a brother, Nathan.

 career
Some of Kartheiser’s first acting experiences were on stage of Children's Theatre Company in Minneapolis, including roles in Pippi Longstocking, Our Town, Dr. Seuss’ The 500 Hats of Bartholomew Cubbins, and Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm.

Kartheiser made his screen debut with a bit role in the 1993 film Untamed Heart, opposite Marisa Tomei and Christian Slater. Kartheiser found himself cast in mostly family fare, including The Indian in the Cupboard and the action-adventure drama Alaska, in which he starred opposite Thora Birch and Charlton Heston, whose son, Fraser Clarke Heston, directed the film. The film led to Kartheiser getting the lead role in Masterminds, playing opposite Patrick Stewart.

Kartheiser next portrayed Bobby, a drug-addicted, homeless street urchin in Larry Clark's Another Day in Paradise. Among his castmates were James Woods and Melanie Griffith. He also had two explicit sex scenes with Natasha Gregson, one of which was cut from the film in order to avoid an NC-17 rating. The film earned the young actor significant accolades, and he went on to appear in Strike! , opposite Kirsten Dunst, Gaby Hoffmann, and Monica Keena, the last of whom co-starred with him again in his next project, Crime and Punishment in Suburbia.

Screened at the 2000 Sundance Film Festival, Crime and Punishment in Suburbia was a moody, updated take on Dostoyevsky's Crime and Punishment, set in a modern high school. Kartheiser later landed a regular role on the supernatural drama series Angel in 2002. He played Connor, the son of two vampires, Darla and the titular Angel . Upon returning to Los Angeles, Connor's gradually unraveling mental state was among the main focuses of the show's fourth season; he would make two more appearances during its final season.

Returning to film work, Kartheiser starred in the well-received coming-of-age drama Dandelion, which was shown at the 2004 Sundance Film Festival.

Since its 2007 debut, he has played the role of ambitious young ad man Pete Campbell in the television series Mad Men, on AMC.

Along with the rest of the cast of Mad Men, Kartheiser won the Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series in 2009 and 2010.

Kartheiser filmed his role as Fielding in the BBC's two-part adaptation of Martin Amis' novel Money in the winter of 2009. The adaptation starred Nick Frost and began airing on BBC Two on the 23rd of May, 2010.

 personal life
Kartheiser lives ascetically: he eschews car ownership, instead walking or taking mass transit; he currently lives in a bungalow he describes as a "wooden box" with no mirrors; and he has been selling or giving away everything he owns. At one time it was reported he did not own a toilet, but he has since denied this. Kartheiser is a vegetarian and has chosen not to have children describing both decisions as "green choices."
