Sam Witwer

Sam Witwer is an American actor known for portraying Lt. Crashdown in Battlestar Galactica, Davis Bloome in Smallville, and vampire Aidan Waite of the US/Canadian remake of BBC’s supernatural drama series Being Human on Syfy. He also voiced main protagonist Galen Marek/Starkiller in the video game Star Wars: The Force Unleashed as well as The Son & Darth Maul for Cartoon Network’s Star Wars: The Clone Wars.

Witwer claims that his first on-screen credit was that of a Chicago Bulls commercial. He soon found himself in speaking roles on hit television series, such as ER. Witwer’s first major recurring role came in the form of portraying Lt. Crashdown on Battlestar Galactica, although he has credited much of his current success to his role as Neil Perry on the Showtime serial killer series Dexter. Witwer also appeared as Private Wayne Jessup in the movie The Mist.

He has also appeared in television series such as JAG, Dark Angel, Angel, Star Trek: Enterprise, Cold Case, Bones, and It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. Witwer was cast Season 8 of Smallville as Davis Bloome, a paramedic who struggles with a darkness within as he is the human camouflage of Doomsday, a character in the comics best known for being the only villain to have killed Superman. Although uncredited, Witwer also played the full-physical form of the show’s version of Zod at the end of the Season 8 finale (while the role would later be played in Season 9 by British actor Callum Blue).

A lifelong Star Wars fan, Witwer provided both his voice and likeness for lead character Galen Marek/Starkiller (Darth Vader’s secret apprentice) in the 2008 video game Star Wars: The Force Unleashed and 2010 sequel Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II. He has also voiced Darth Sidious (Emperor Palpatine) in both games. For Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Witwer had also vocally performed the Son in Season 3 as well as the iconic Sith Lord Darth Maul in the Season 4 finale episodes and in four episodes of Season 5.

Witwer made a cameo appearance in The Walking Dead as a zombie soldier in a tank in the Season 1 episode “Days Gone Bye” which reunited him with director Frank Darabont from The Mist. Witwer most recently starred in the North American remake of Being Human in the role of vampire Aidan Waite.
