Bio

David Boreanaz is an American actor best known for his roles in the television series Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel and Bones.

Boreanaz was born in Buffalo, New York and grew up in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where his father, Dave Roberts (born David Thomas Boreanaz), is a weather presenter for WPVI-TV; his mother, Patti Boreanaz, is a travel agent.

He is of Czech and Italian descent. However, his ancestors are from the Italian-Slovenian border region which accounts for the Boreanaz name.

He was raised a Catholic. Angel and Seeley Booth, his two most famous characters, were both raised Catholic.

Boreanaz attended high school at Malvern Preparatory School in Malvern, Pennsylvania, and went to college at Ithaca College in Ithaca, New York. After graduating, Boreanaz moved to Hollywood, California and was discovered by a producer who noticed his brooding and intense looks while Boreanaz was walking his dog.

Boreanaz' first acting appearance was a guest spot on the hit American sitcom, Married... with Children, as Kelly's biker boyfriend.

He was cast in the television series Buffy the Vampire Slayer, playing the mysterious Angel, a vampire with a soul. The show became enormously successful and Boreanaz starred in a spin-off series, Angel, which gave the character a chance to evolve and concentrated on Angel's battle for redemption.

He appeared on Buffy from 1997 to 1999, at which point he began starring in Angel, which ran until 2004. Totalling all of his appearances on Buffy & Angel, including guest appearances, Boreanaz has the distinctions of having appeared in the most episodes of the two series by a significant margin.

During Buffy, it was rumoured that he was dating Sarah Michelle Gellar.

Boreanaz's only starring role in a major theatrical film was in 2001's slasher horror film, Valentine, alongside Denise Richards and Katherine Heigl.

In 2003, he appeared in the music video for singer Dido's "White Flag", and was the voice of Leon (aka Squall Leonhart) in the video game Kingdom Hearts, though he was replaced by Doug Erholtz for Kingdom Hearts II.

In 2005, Boreanaz began starring opposite Emily Deschanel on the primetime television series Bones.

In 2005 he appeared in These Girls, a Canadian film in which he played a biker; the film received a limited theatrical release in Canada in March of 2006, after premiering at the Toronto Film Festival and the Vancouver International Film Festival.

In 2006 he appeared in the feature film Mr. Fix It.

His upcoming roles include parts in the independent films Suffering Man's Charity and the voice of Hal Jordan in the upcoming DC Comics animated feature Justice League: The New Frontier.

Boreanaz lives in Los Angeles, California.

He was married to Ingrid Quinn from 1997 to 1999, and married actress and model Jaime Bergman-Boreanaz on November 24, 2001. The couple have a son, Jaden Rayne Boreanaz, who was born on May 1, 2002.
