Early Life

Sebastian was born on August 13, 1982, in the Romanian port city of Constanța. Shortly after his birth, his parents divorced, leaving him in the care of his mother, the pianist Georgeta.

At the age of eight, the anti-communist Romanian Revolution occurred, forcing his family to move to Vienna. Four years later, they migrated to the United States.

For many children, moving from one home to another can be challenging. But young Sebastian transitioned through three countries and three languages.
It was tough transitioning from one world into a completely different one where a different language is spoken. But in the end, that experience proved valuable. As a child, you just want to fit in. Growing up, I realized that being different is actually a good thing.
In the US, Georgeta married the head of a private school in New York, which Sebastian attended. He formed a close bond with his stepfather, quickly regarding him as his real father.

From his earliest months in America, Stan was frequently on stage. He joined the drama club and participated in all school plays including "West Side Story," "Harvey," "Cyrano de Bergerac," and "Little Shop of Horrors." After finishing high school, he enrolled in the Arts University in New Jersey. In college, Sebastian earned the nickname "Sea Bass."
Upon graduation, not only did he become a certified actor, but he was also officially recognized as a US citizen. In 2007, he made his Broadway debut in "Talk Radio" alongside Liev Schreiber.

Acting Career

Stan's film debut took place in Vienna in 1994, when he was cast in a minor role in the Austrian drama "71 Fragments of a Chronology of Chance." He returned to the big screen a decade later, starring in the comedy "Tony n' Tina's Wedding." Interestingly, the lead role was played by then-unknown actress Mila Kunis, also an immigrant from Eastern Europe.

Sebastian's first significant role was in the popular TV drama "Gossip Girl" alongside Blake Lively. Although his character only appeared in 11 episodes of the show's first three seasons, the young actor garnered a large female following worldwide. A few years later, he starred in the NBC series "Kings."

In 2010, Stan teamed up with Mila Kunis again, this time in Darren Aronofsky's Oscar-winning drama "Black Swan."

A turning point in Sebastian's career was his role as the assassin Bucky Barnes, also known as the Winter Soldier, in "Captain America: The First Avenger." Released in 2011, this blockbuster made Stan one of the hottest young actors of his generation.

The movie grossed over $350 million globally, leading to several sequels where Sebastian reprised his role as Bucky Barnes, and again teamed up with Chris Evans, who played Captain America. Stan also voiced his character in the video game "Captain America: Super Soldier." While working on the Marvel franchise, Sebastian featured in notable projects such as the sci-fi comedy "The Martian" with Matt Damon, the action film "Logan Lucky" with Daniel Craig and Channing Tatum.

Preparing for this role, Sebastian tried to lose weight by walking 20,000 steps daily, running extensively, and fasting for 16-18 hours a day. Yet, mastering the impressive drum solos was the most challenging part. "My fingers were swollen for one and a half weeks. I kept hitting my head with the drumsticks," he reminisced.
