Biography

An actor who has most often played gay characters in independent feature films, Craig Chester is best recalled for his first starring role as the murderous Nathan Leopold in "Swoon" (1992). A year later, the brown-haired yuppie-looking Chester played another leading role in a low-budget film, this time as Mark, a gay man coping with the death of his lover from AIDS while trying to produce a tacky syndicated tabloid series in "Grief". He was Henry the masochist in "Frisk" (1995) and The Factory business whiz Fred Hughes in "I Shot Andy Warhol" (1996). In 1997, Chester co-starred as Terry, the gay roommate's friend, in "Kiss Me, Guido". Chester has appeared infrequently on TV, but had a supporting role in the ABC TV-movie "Out of Darkness" in 1994 and briefly joined the cast of the CBS soap "As the World Turns" in the fall of 1998.
