Biography

This handsome, muscular player, the younger brother of actor Anthony LaPaglia, initially pursued a career in medicine as an emergency room physician in both his native Australia and the UK. Encouraged by his older sibling, LaPaglia began studying acting in Australia and made a few stage appearances. After marking time practicing medicine in London, he moved to NYC in 1994 and began studying acting at the Circle in the Square school. Within three months of graduating, LaPaglia had landed his first major acting role, complete with an authentic 'Noo Yawk' accent, as Detective Tom McNamara on "New York Undercover," a role he played during the 1996-97 season. After a cameo appearance in Woody Allen's "Deconstructing Harry" (1997), the actor returned to the series grind as the star of the UPN sci-fi series "7 Days" (1998-2001), playing a time traveling agent who is given one week to avert a disaster.
