DAVID BOREANAZ - FBI SPECIAL AGENT SEELEY BOOTH
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 long-running series. Boreanaz also appeared in The Crow: Wicked Prayer, the fourth installment of the horror series, also starring Dennis Hopper, Edward Furlong, Tara Reid and Macy Gray.
A native of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, 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.
