Sam Witwer headlines the SyFy series, Being Human, an adaptation of the popular British television series. The darkly humorous, provocative drama casts Sam as the heroic, “Aidan”, a sensual and brooding vampire. Feature film fans remember Sam as the sacrificed “Wayne Jessup” in The Mist, Frank Darabont's adaptation of the Stephen King novella. Two independent features in which Sam stars await release: The Return of Joe Rich, starring opposite Armand Assante and Talia Shire and No God, No Master starring with David Strathairn and Edoardo Ballerini.
A favorite in the science-fiction world, Sam began his career in the memorable role of “Lt. Crashdown” in SyFy's Battlestar Galactica and played “Davis Bloom/ Doomsday”, the man fated to kill Superman, on CW's Smallville. Star Wars fans and the gaming community will also recognize Sam as Darth Vader’s vengeful apprentice, “StarKiller” in the LucasArts' video game sensation Star Wars: The Force Unleashed (Parts One and Two). Through high-tech digital
referencing and motion capture, Sam has become the voice and face of this LucasArts’ creation in which the first title grossed over 500 million dollars and whose highly anticipated sequel will be released later this fall. Sam has also done extensive voice work for the fan-favorite Clone Wars, which includes his most current role as ‘Darth Maul’.
His other television credits include guest appearances on Bones, Star Trek: New Voyager, Navy NCIS, Dragnet, Cold Case, Tag, and ER.
A Chicago native and a Juilliard-trained actor, Sam is also an accomplished musician who performed in the LA music scene with his band, The Crashtones.
