Tony Amendola stars in "Continuum" on Syfy as Edouard Kagame.

Born in New Haven, Connecticut, into a blue-collar family, Tony Amendola was the first member of his family to attend college. He grew up on the East Coast before his work took him throughout the world.

He spent the first 12 years almost exclusively in the theater appearing off-Broadway in an acclaimed production of "Filumena" and in leading roles on the stages of America's top regional theaters, including the Mark Taper Forum, American Conservatory Theatre, Williamstown Theatre Festival, La Jolla Playhouse and the Old Globe. Theatrical credits include the roles of Cyrano, Iago, Uncle Vanya, Cassius, Malvolio, Petruchio, Antony, Shely, Levine, Teach, and Jack Henry Abbot in "In the Belly of the Beast".

Hoping to expand his craft and career, Tony moved to Los Angeles to seek work in film and television. His film work has been varied and rewarding, including appearances opposite Johnny Depp in Ted Demme's "Blow," Anthony Hopkins and Antonio Banderas in Martin Campbell's "The Mask of Zorro," and Chris Cooper in John Sayles's "Lone Star. " Other credits include "Dragon Slayer," opposite John Rhys Davis, "Club Dread" with Bill Paxton, "Shade" with Gabriel Byrne and Sylvester Stallone, and a wonderful part as a blind sorcerer in "Forbidden Warrior," directed by Jimmy Nickerson.

Amendola's television credits include a long running role on "Stargate SG-1" as Master Bra-Tac (a Jaffa Obi-Wan); recurring roles in "Once Upon a Time," "Dexter," "The Practice" and "Spawn"; and guest-starring roles in "NCIS: Los Angeles," "CSI: NY," "Dollhouse," "Numb3rs," "Raising the Bar," " Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles," "The West Wing," "Judging Amy," "Robbery Homicide Division" and "The X-Files."

Amendola has a passion for studying languages, currently struggling to attain fluency in Italian and Spanish. He avidly practices yoga, loves to cook and lives in Silver Lake, California, with his wife Judith.
