Charles Kristian Bonnycastle Bruun, who would later become known as Kristian Bruun, was born on Oct. 25, 1975, in Toronto, Canada. Bruun attended Valley Forge Military Academy in Pennsylvania from 1994-1997 before furthering his studies at Queen's University in Ontario. After graduating with a Bachelor of Arts in drama in 2001, he went on to study at the George Brown Theater School in Toronto. Wanting a career in acting, he trained extensively with David Rotenberg at the Professional Actors Lab, hoping to land a job. His big break finally came when he appeared in the film "Good Morning Tomorrow" (2003), playing a bartender.

Bruun went on to land roles in "Nikita" (The CW, 2010-2013), "Blood Pressure" (2012), and "Play the Film" (2013). His early success led to better jobs, eventually helping him secure the role of playing Constable Slugger Jackson on "Murdoch Mysteries" (City,CBC 2012-2017), and he appeared in 21 episodes from 2012-2015. While searching for his place in the acting world, he finally found a job on the award-winning Canadian science-fiction series "Orphan Black" (Space, 2013- ) in which he played Donnie Hendrix, the husband of Tatiana Maslany's character of Alison, one of the main characters. After his initial appearance, he went on to become a member of the main cast. Although he is the most well-known for his role as Donnie Hendrix, he has also appeared in a number of other films and television series.
