Sam Witwer headlined 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.

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. Sam has also done extensive voice work for the fan-favorite The Clone Wars, which includes his most current role as Darth Maul.

His other television credits include guest appearances on Bones, Star Trek: New Voyager, 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.
