Bio

Paul Johansson is an American actor best known for his starring role as Dan Scott in the teen drama series One Tree Hill, from 2003-2012.

Born and raised in Spokane, Washington, Johansson was an avid athlete like his father, a former NHL player. After playing with the Canadian National basketball team and leading his university to the Canadian College Championship game, he began contemplating a professional career in basketball overseas.

Changing gears, however, Paul chose to set his sights on Hollywood.

Making his television debut on the soap opera Santa Barbara, he soon moved on to a succession of roles in such shows as Parker Lewis Can't Lose, Beverly Hills, 90210, Lonesome Dove: The Series, Highlander: The Raven and Ed McBain's 87th Precinct.

Johansson also made memorable guest appearances in Dharma and Greg and The Drew Carey Show and had a recurring role in The District.

On the big screen, Johansson appeared in the feature film Alpha Dog, opposite Bruce Willis and Justin Timberlake. He also played Sally Field's soap opera husband in the film Soapdish.

His other movie credits include When the Party's Over, The Big Picture, She's So Lovely, A Wilderness Station and Carnival of Souls.

As a filmmaker, Johansson was awarded two Emmys for the feature film The Incredible Mrs. Ritchie, which he both wrote and directed. The film starred Gena Rowlands and James Caan and was produced by Nick Cassavetes.

He also wrote and directed the acclaimed 19-minute film short Conversations in Limbo, which opened the Toronto Short Film Festival. This film was honoured at the Nashville Independent Film Festival and ultimately acquired by the Sundance Film Channel.
