Michael Mando is a Canadian actor, writer and director with a background in contemporary and classical theatre who is well known for his role as Vaas Montenegro, the secondary antagonist, in the video game Far Cry 3.

He is also known for his starring role as Victor "Vic" Schmidt, Sarah's abusive, drug-dealing ex-boyfriend, in the science fiction television series Orphan Black.

Born in Quebec City, Mando grew up across four continents. He received classical and contemporary training at The Dome Theatre (2004-2007) and was praised by the chairman as, "One of the finest talents to emerge from the program in the past 25 years."

He was immediately snapped up to play leads in critically and commercially successful plays, one of which broke the award nomination record in Montreal (Moliere's Les Fourberies De Scapin). He subsequently pierced into film and television in 2009 with appearances on such shows as The Bridge and The Border.

Other highlighted credits include a leading role in award-winning feature Territories, a wide range of supporting roles including The Pregnancy Project, Cobu and The Good Lie, a recurring role in Les Bleus de Ramville, as well as guest starring in multiple TV hits, including Rookie Blue.

The video game Far Cry 3 and live action web-series The Island Experience propelled Mando to the international scene, where he not only lends his voice, face and body to the infamous Vaas, but also co-created the cult favourite with Ubisoft Entertainment.
