Male On Monday : Aaron Douglas
Pink Heart Editor Donna Alward brings a little Canadiana to the Male on Monday theme today with Vancouver native Aaron Douglas.
So who exactly is Aaron Douglas? Well, despite the stern, scowly pictures he has a rep of being quite a jokester and easy-going...
Aaron Douglas was born in and currently resides in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada where he films and stars in the critically acclaimed Sci-Fi television series Battlestar Galactica.
Having gotten his professional acting start later in life Aaron quit his 9-5 workaday life to attend the William Davis Center for Actors at age 27. By the end of the school year Aaron had an agent and was well on his way to becoming one of Hollywood North's most successful actors.
Before becoming Chief Tyrol on Battlestar Galactica, Aaron appeared in many of the television series shot in Vancouver, among them The Outer Limits, Stargate SG-1, Smallville, Andromeda, Jeremiah, and many others. On the big screen Aaron can be seen in X-Men 2, Final Destination 2, White Noise, I- Robot, Catwoman, Paycheck, The Chronicles of Riddick, Butterfly on a Wheel and many others.
Aaron's jersey is the perfect combination
of hockey and BSG!
If you see him at a game, he and the lads will talk hockey with you all night in exchange for a pint.
Aaron does a lot of work for charities and the majority of his efforts go to the Canadian Cancer Foundation and Canuck Place Children's Hospice. He has a son and lost his wife to cancer several years ago.
The Bridge is slotted to appear on CBS Stateside in beginning in July. Now that the season's over, I know it's a really great show because the final episode is sticking with me - I can't wait to see what happens next season. Meanwhile, I can get my Aaron fix from my BSG dvd sets...
Donna's latest book is a reprint of HIRED: THE ITALIAN'S BRIDE in the anthology Mediterranean Men and Marriage.
