Bio

Aaron Douglas is a Canadian actor best known for his role as Chief Petty Officer Galen Tyrol on the sci-fi television series Battlestar Galactica.

In 2003, the cult Battlestar Galactica (1978 TV series) was brought back to life, albeit in a reimagined form, as a three-hour mini-series. The project was written and produced by Ronald D. Moore and directed by Michael Rymer.

Aaron Douglas starred as Galen Tyrol, a Chief Petty Officer in the Colonial Fleet, in the reimagined mini-series. The mini-series effectively served as pilot for a potential TV show.

A TV series was commissioned in a collaborative effort between the Sci Fi Channel (United States) and Sky TV (the British broadcaster). Battlestar Galactica is filmed mostly in Vancouver, Canada and has been renewed for a fourth season in which Aaron Douglas is a regular cast member.

His character did not feature in the original 1978 series.

Douglas has made numerous guest appearances on television, in shows such as Cold Squad, Dark Angel, Smallville, Stargate SG-1, The Outer Limits, American Dreams, Jeremiah, The L Word, Andromeda and The Dead Zone.

Aside from the Battlestar Galactica mini-series, he has appeared in the mini-series Out Of Order and 10.5.

Feature films he has acted in include Stealing Sinatra (2003), Final Destination 2 (2003), X2 (2003), Walking Tall (2004), The Chronicles of Riddick (2004), I, Robot (2004), Catwoman (2004), The Exorcism of Emily Rose (2005), Man About Town (2006) and Butterfly on a Wheel (2007).

He also appeared in the pilot episode of the sci-fi series Bionic Woman, in 2007.
