Gerald Auger stars in "Hell on Wheels" on AMC as the Pawnee Killer.

Amember of the First Nations tribe, Gerald Auger previously played Soaring Eagle in the Steven Spielberg-produced TNT miniseries "Into the West." Auger also had a pivotal cameo in the series "Blackstone," a role in the cult classic "Fubar 2," a spot in the ABC miniseries "Dreamkeeper" and a part in CTV's "Luna: Spirit of the Whale," starring Jason Priestley and an all-star First Nations cast that included Tantoo Cardinal, Adam Beach and Graham Greene.

Auger was part of the cast of "My West," which starred David Bowie and Harvey Keitel and was the first spaghetti Western to use First Nations actors in aboriginal roles. Auger also appeared in "Lewis and Clark: The Journey West," one of the first historical Westerns to be screened in IMAX.

Augur produced, wrote and directed the highly acclaimed 2009 National Film Board of Canada documentary "Honour Thy Father," which chronicled his conflict with the Anglican Church, which barred the right of his late father to have a traditional native funeral. A short film called "Walking Alone" also received considerable attention the following year, thanks to the gritty, edginess Auger applied in profiling the life of rapper Shawn Bernard.
