Rhys Coiro

Hollywood actor and Princeton High School alumnus (’97) Rhys Coiro is in the cast of the off-Broadway play The Coast Starlight, written by Keith Bunin and directed by Tyne Rafaefi, at Lincoln Center through April 16.

Among Coiro’s previous credits are HBO’s Entourage, the movie Hustlers, television’s Law in Order: Special Victims Unit, and the Disney TV series She Hulk: Attorney at Law.

Coiro started acting in middle school when he attended what was then named John Witherspoon Middle School. He continued his training and love for acting by attending classes at McCarter Theatre and starring in plays at Princeton High School.

The 44-year-old lives in Atlanta, is married to director Kat Coiro, and has three children. The Coast Starlight is not the first time Coiro has appeared at Lincoln Center. After graduating from Carnegie Mellon University, where he met his wife, he landed the role of Eddie Bellhop in the Lincoln Center revival of George S. Kauffman’s Dinner at Eight.
