in the Park." After this, it was off Vancouver to pursue the growing film industry in 1995.

Zahf's film career began with a Disney film called "Northern Lights," starring Diane Keaton, as her young and arrogant boss. He then guest starred in the first season of the science fiction series "Stargate-SG-1." With his career gathering momentum, he landed his first large studio picture with the MGM thriller "Antitrust," starring Ryan Phillipe and Tim Robbins. This project caught the attention of casting directors, and he got cast in the Farrelly Brothers comedy "Say it isn't So" with Chris Klein and Heather Graham. Zahf was brought in for a small character role, but director J.B. Rogers loved his work so much that he created a new character just for him in the film.

Zahf then headed to Toronto for a reality series called "Sketch Troop," on which talent scouts cast two comedians from 6 major cities in Canada and put them in a house together to live and create comedy gold. Based on his work, Zahf became a series immunity winner and helped create a team that went on to perform at the prestigious Just for Laughs Festival in Montreal. A one-hour documentary followed, called "The Road to Funny," that chronicled the troop in a traveling comedy tour.

Upon his return to the West coast, Zahf played a campy and cult character role in the Jason Lee flick "A Guy Thing" followed by the Warner Bros. film "Scooby Doo 2." During this time, Zahf was also working on the teenage drama series "Edgemont."

Zahf then took a year to return to the theater. He moved to New York to be on Broadway in the Andrew Lloyd Webber and A.R.Rahman musical "Bombay Dreams." Zahf was in the cast ensemble, playing 16 characters and also understudying for the two leads. The show ran for nine months at the Broadway Theatre and closed January 1, 2005.

Zahf returned to Vancouver to film many other projects, including "Firewall" with Harrison Ford, "Degrassi: The Next Generation," "The Unquiet" and the ABC family series "3 Moons Over Milford." Alongside these, Zahf began to avidly write and produce his own comedy with Grimaldi's Asylum.

Zahf then starred in ABC's "Defying Gravity" as Ajay Sharma.
