A multi-faceted actor, David Anders carved out a successful career portraying villainous characters who were seemingly always one step ahead of their heroic counterparts. He first made waves as a sly and ruthless operative on the hit action drama "Alias" (ABC, 2001-06), about a CIA double-agent who takes on dangerous missions to destroy rogue crime cells worldwide. Anders continued to make inroads on television with appearances on a string of dramas, including "Deadwood" (HBO, 2004-06) and "Grey's Anatomy" (ABC, 2005- ), before landing a recurring part on the sci-fi drama "Heroes" (NBC, 2006-2010), in a dual-character role of a Japanese warrior who transforms into a man who possesses the gift of immortality. A prolific character actor who often spoke with a British accent for many his roles, Anders continued to gain momentum with recurring roles on the supernatural drama "The Vampire Diaries" (The CW, 2009-17) and the adventure fantasy "Once Upon a Time" (ABC, 2011- ). Yet, it was his keep-'em-guessing performance on the spy drama "Alias" that gave him the mainstream exposure needed to land more exciting and compelling roles.
