Biography

From breakdancing on TV with his brother to testing his limits on the Chicago stage and portraying vampires and aliens, Rick Worthy was the definition of versatility. He sidestepped his parent's initial disapproval of his acting ambitions by convincing them he was a media studies major at the University of Michigan, and honed his acting skills in the Chicago theater scene. At first, Worthy started out small; a brief appearance on "Missing Persons" (ABC, 1993-94) here, a background cameo in "Richie Rich" (1994) there. A voiceover gig in the computer game "Star Trek: Klingon" (Simon & Schuster, 1996), which he followed with a dramatic turn on "Murder One" (ABC, 1995-97), was just the first of many other-worldly roles for the self-professed sci-fi and fantasy geek. He appeared in numerous "Star Trek" projects, including 1998's "Star Trek: Insurrection," and portrayed a Cylon on "Battlestar Galactica" (Syfy, 2004-09) before morphing into a vampire on "Supernatural" (The WB/The CW, 2005- ). His clueless mayor on "The Vampire Diaries" (The CW, 2009- ) aside, Rick Worthy was always on the lookout for something new.
