California native Chris Olivero was discovered at 15 by director David DeCoteau, who cast him in his first screen role, that of Bill in the teen-centric sci-fi TV movie "Alien Arsenal". After appearances in a string of TV movies, Olivero landed a recurring role as a student on the popular David E. Kelley drama "Boston Public", which centered on the eccentric but dedicated faculty of a public high school. Following a series of one-off roles in crime dramas like David Caruso's "CSI: Miami" and Jennifer Love Hewitt's "Ghost Whisperer", the handsome young actor was cast as a series regular on the mystery-infused drama "Kyle XY". Olivero portrayed the popular Declan McDonough, a teen traumatized by the death of his brother, for three seasons on the acclaimed series before it wrapped in 2009. He quickly rebounded, scoring his first role in a feature film. In 2011, Olivero made his film debut in the paranormal horror flick "Seance".
