Tahmoh Penikett Biography

  • Profession: Actor
  • Born: Jan 1, 0001
  • Died: Jan 1, 0001

Canadian born Tahmoh Penikett studied at the Victoria Motion Picture School and the Lyric School of Acting before trying his hand at a professional career in show business. He began making minor appearances on Canadian television in the late '90s, and eventually transitioned into acting for American audiences, with appearances on [[Feature~V301901~The L Word~thelword[tvseries]]] and [[Feature~V244127~Losing It~losingit]]. Then in 2003, Penikett was cast in a four-hour mini-series "reimagining" of the '70s science fiction show [[Feature~V319610~Battlestar Galactica~battlestargalactica[tvseries]]], which was being filmed in Vancouver. Penikett was cast in the role of Karl "Helo" Agathon, an officer in a fleet of massive spacecraft that serve as the nomadic home for the human race following the nuclear destruction of planet Earth. The mini-series was a big hit with test audiences and earned surprisingly stunning accolades from critics, who were impressed to see such drama and subtext in a Sci-Fi Network production. A full season was commissioned based on the series, and the show instantly garnered a solid core following, coming back for numerous seasons. Meanwhile, Penikett joined the cast of another sci-fi show in 2009, playing FBI agent Paul Ballard on the [[Performer~P167372~Joss Whedon~josswhedon]] project [[Feature~V481232~Dollhouse~dollhouse[tvseries]]]. ~ Cammila Collar, Rovi
