He attended Four Corners School and later the Greenfield Center School. Hansis began acting in theater camp as a child. He attended high school at a boarding school called Walnut Hill School for the Arts in Natick, because, he says, he knew by then he wanted to be an actor "and it was a good school for that".

Hansis portrayed Luke Snyder on the CBS soap opera As the World Turns from December 14, 2005 until the show's final episode September 17, 2010. Luke, previously played by Jake Weary, is the son of one of the series' long running supercouples, Holden and Lily Snyder (played by Jon Hensley and Martha Byrne, later Noelle Beck). Shortly after Hansis took over the role, the character came out as gay in spring 2006. Luke subsequently became involved in a romance with another male character, a pairing eventually hailed as the first gay supercouple in American soap opera history. The August 17, 2007 kiss between Luke and Noah Mayer (played by Jake Silbermann) was the first ever gay male kiss on an American daytime drama. Hansis was nominated for a Daytime Emmy Award for portraying Luke in 2007, 2008 and 2009.
