Colin Sphar is a US actor originally from Sacramento, who lives in Chicago and performs around the country. Colin is enthusiastic about building strong community with other artists and supporting the generation of new work that speaks to our current world. We are never going back to whatever before was. He's enjoyed being a co-creator, producer, and collaborator on projects including the variety show The You're So Special, a play reading series of Safe, Three Queer Plays,  and enjoys playing with the Back Room Shakespeare Project. Colin has received Ovation, Joseph Jefferson, and Elly Awards for his work.

This summer, it was supremely joyful to work on Jarrett King's St. Miles as part of Goodman Theatre's Playwrights Unit, before appearing as jealous husband Tony in Jeffrey Hatcher's new adaptation of Dial M for Murder, TheatreSquared's season 18 opener.


Colin's work on stage includes Mosque4Mosque (Steppenwolf, SCOUT), We Are Proud to Present... (Theater Emory), Luna Gale (Goodman Theatre, world premiere and Center Theatre Group), Posh (Steep Theatre), Letters Home (Griffin Theatre, national tour) and work with Primary Stages, Chicago Shakespeare, Southwest Shakespeare, Sacramento Theatre Company, Victory Gardens, A Red Orchid, TimeLine, and Teatro Vista.


He can be seen in commercials as well as on film and TV in Liminal Vortices, Be Here With Me, Nine Lives, and Con Vex.


Colin grew up acting, singing, and dancing professionally before graduating from The Theatre School at DePaul University. He studied internationally at the British American Drama Academy in Oxford, England and the Roy Hart Centre at Malérargues, France.
