A native of New Zealand, Kieren Hutchison is best known for his acting work on fantasy and adventure TV series like "The Legend of William Tell". After being active in local theater productions from an early age, Hutchison became part of the nightly soap "Shortland Street" in 1994, and co-starred in the New Zealand drama "Riding High" beginning in 1995. He played Ernst on the drama "The Adventures of Swiss Family Robinson" and, in a signature role, rose to stardom in the fantasy adventure "The Legend of William Tell". His success on that program led to offers from Hollywood productions. Hutchison co-starred in the horror film "No One Can Hear You" with Kelly McGillis and, in 2004, began a recurring role on the youth drama "One Tree Hill". During that show's run, he starred in the short-lived drama "Monarch Cove" as well as the family show "Wildfire", set on a horse ranch. He also starred in the low-budget horror feature "Sea of Fear" in 2006.
