"There's power in looking silly and not caring that you do."
WESTON CHANDLER LONG was born and raised in Connecticut and currently resides in New York City. Weston has been a performer for almost all of his life, acting in his first production after a brief, doomed attempt playing soccer at age five. For as long as he has been an actor, he has been a puppeteer as well. He has been personally mentored in puppetry since age five by dear friend and Sesame Street legend Caroll Spinney and has received formal training in the craft from puppetry greats John Tartaglia, Matt Vogel, Martin P. Robinson, and Peter Linz. Weston’s favorite credits to date include originating the role of Ronnie in Reusable the Musical and its subsequent production Take the Plunge, puppeteering the role of Tank in the national tour of John Tartaglia's ImaginOcean, and making his Off-Broadway debut as The Artist and a puppeteer in the Drama Desk-nominated production of The Very Hungry Caterpillar Show. Weston is currently a Dean’s List student studying film at Pace University. He is a lifelong fan of Saturday Night Live, dog enthusiast, middle child, vertically-enhanced individual, sitcom junkie, and frequent baker.
