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.
