While relatively new to the world of acting, David Boreanaz has catapulted to stardom with his quiet intensity as the mysterious and tortured Angel on "Buffy the Vampire Slayer."
A native of Philadelphia, Boreanaz was exposed to television at a young age - his father is a veteran weather forecaster for WPVI in Philadelphia. Since seeing the inspiring performance of Yul Brynner in "The King and I" at the young age of seven, Boreanaz had a feeling that acting would be in his future. 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 doing such jobs as 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 shot on "Married...With Children" playing Kelly Bundy's (Christina Applegate) biker boyfriend. He has also appeared in the television movie "Men Don't Lie."
On Stage, Boreanaz has performed at the Ensemble Theatre in "Hatful 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 "Aspen Extreme," "Best of the Best 2" and "Eyes of the World."
