Born John-Paul Seponski in Phoenixville, Pa., Lavoisier chose his new name after reading about Antoine Lavoisier in a science textbook while attending Phoenixville High School. He went on to enroll in Philadelphia's University of the Arts, where he studied music performance. Although he started out specializing in percussion, Lavoisier followed the beat of his own drum and pursued acting at The School for Film and Television and Michael Howard Studios, both in New York. Laviosier also studied privately with Deborah Mathieu-Byers.
His role as ONE LIFE TO LIVE's Rex Balsom is his first major acting job and his first contract role, though he previously played a model on SEX AND THE CITY and an orderly on ALL MY CHILDREN. Additionally, he is very involved in theater. A member of the Street Light Productions theater company in Manhattan, Lavoisier still acts on stage whenever his busy soap schedule allows. In 2007 he worked on the film Placebo.
