David Boreanaz
(Angel)

While relatively new to the world of acting when he landed a guest-starring role on Buffy the Vampire Slayer, David Boreanaz catapulted to stardom with his quiet intensity as the mysterious and tortured Angel and ultimately landed his own series. Over his most recent summer hiatus, Boreanaz completed production on the big-screen romantic comedy I'm With Lucy co-starring with Monica Potter, Henry Thomas and Anthony LaPaglia.

A native of Philadelphia, Pa., Boreanaz was exposed to television at a young age his father is a veteran weather forecaster for WPVI in Philadelphia. After graduating from Ithaca College, he moved to Los Angeles to try his luck in Hollywood.

While studying the craft of acting, Boreanaz lived the life of a starving actor, making ends meet by parking cars, painting houses and handing out towels at a sports club. Yet, it was while walking his dog in a Hollywood neighborhood that a manager spotted his brooding, intense look and instantly signed him as a client. His first big break was a guest spot on Married┐with Children playing Kelly Bundy's (Christina Applegate) biker boyfriend.

In February 2001, Boreanaz starred in the horror film Valentine as a college nerd who is the victim of a vicious practical joke by four women. More than 10 years later, he is handsome, charismatic, successful and seeking vengeance.

On stage, Boreanaz has performed at the Ensemble Theatre in Hat Full of Rain, at the Gardner Stage in Italian-American Reconciliation and Fool for Love, and on theatre row in Cowboy Mouth. His feature film credits include Aspen Extreme, Best of the Best 2 and Eyes of the World.

An avid golfer and traveler, Boreanaz currently lives in Los Angeles, Calif.
