French actor Sebastian Roché's life reads something like a movie itself: the linguistically-gifted actor (he is fluent in Spanish, Italian, French and English) spent his teenage years sailing with his family, and later studied drama at the famed Conservatoir Superieur d'Art Dramatique in Paris while working on the French stage and screen. By the late '90s Roché had married actress Vera Farmiga; helped co-write the experimental indie film "Loungers" (1995); and appeared in numerous American films and TV series, including the short-lived Heath Ledger adventure fantasy "Roar" (Fox, 1997). But it was the 2000s that found the avid rock climber ascending to new heights. In 2007 he voiced a character in the epic "Beowulf," and landed a recurring role as a criminally-minded terrorist on the long-running ABC soap opera "General Hospital" (1963- ). Two years later Roché, who continued to perform on stage throughout the U.S. and Europe, was cast as an otherworldly shapeshifter on "Fringe" (Fox, 2008-2013), which he followed up with memorable performances as a rogue angel on "Supernatural" (The CW, 2005- ) and a centuries-old vampire on "The Vampire Diaries" (The CW, 2009- ). Armed with a sly sense of humour and energetic demeanor, Roché brings his scene-stealing presence to both big and small screens.
