Bio

Brad Johnson is an American actor and former Marlboro Man best known for his role as Ted Baker, Holly Hunter's love interest, in Steven Spielberg's 1989 film Always.

On television he is best known for his starring role as Major Matthew Quentin Shepherd, a former U.S. Army Special Forces soldier specialising in counter-terrorism, special recon, unconventional warfare, infiltration and edged weapons, in the action series SOF: Special Ops Force (also known as Soldier of Fortune, Inc.).

His other movie credits include Flight of the Intruder, Philadelphia Experiment II, Copperhead and Supergator.

Brad's route to stardom was speedy, dramatic and somewhat circuitous. He joined the Pro Rodeo circuit in 1984 and was spotted wrestling steers in Wyoming by a casting director looking for cowboys to use as extras in a beer commercial.

After this first break came a three-year run as the Marlboro Man, then numerous Calvin Klein print ads and more commercials. After a serious knee injury sidelined his rodeo career, Johnson headed for Hollywood.

Within five months of his arrival, Roger Corman cast him to star in Nam Angels (1989). Soon after, Steven Spielberg discovered Johnson and offered him the coveted role of Ted Baker, Holly Hunter's love interest in Always (1989). When asked about her co-star, Holly described Brad as "all twisted steel and sex appeal."

The Spielberg film led Johnson to Paramount for John Milius' Flight of the Intruder (1991). An exclusive three-picture deal at Paramount followed.

Brad lives with his wife Laurie and their 10 children on a ranch in the mountains of Colorado.
