Bio

David Anders is an American actor best known for his sci-fi television roles as Julian Sark on Alias (2002-2006) and as Takezo Kensei/Adam Monroe on Heroes, from 2007-2009.

He also had a recurring role as Troy Cutler, Connor's second-in-command at V3 who gets satisfaction from getting his hands a little dirty for the company, in the third and final season of the television drama series Necessary Roughness, in 2013.

He has recurring roles on Once Upon a Time, on which he plays Storybrooke's Doctor Whale, the fantasy world's Doctor Frankenstein; and the action superhero series Arrow, where he portrays Starling City baddie Cyrus Vanch.

He is also known for his recurring stint as John Gilbert on The Vampire Diaries, as well as his starring role in the SyFy Channel's adaptation of Stephen King's Children of the Corn.

Anders began acting as a young boy in school plays in his native Oregon, but athletics occupied him until he was a senior in high school. He was accepted at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in Pasadena, California, but instead decided to jump right into the business. One week and 800 miles later, he landed in Los Angeles.

On stage, Anders played the lead role in the world premiere of Rockne: The Musical. He also appeared in the world premiere of Beautiful at the New York Fringe Festival and The Diary of Anne Frank, which received an award for Best Ensemble performance at the Backstage West Garland Awards.

Anders' other television roles include guest star appearances on Grey's Anatomy, Warehouse 13, Deadwood, CSI, CSI: Miami and Charmed. His feature film work includes Into the Blue 2 and the offbeat, underground zombie feature The Revenant.

In his spare time, he teaches summer tennis courses to children in Los Angeles. When he's not on the court, he can likely be found on the links. He plays golf as often as he can, including participating in celebrity Pro-Am events and charity events across the country.
