Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

A familiar face in the new millennium, actor Eric Balfour found the majority of his success with recurring roles on popular television series, rather than in feature films or as the lead of an ongoing series of his own. The Los Angeles native began his career as a teenage cast member of "Kids Incorporated" (Disney Channel, 1984-1993) in 1991, then gradually built a résumé with guest turns on such popular fare as the fan favorite "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" (The WB, 1997-2003) and the critically acclaimed "Six Feet Under" (HBO, 2001-05). He picked up further momentum as a security expert on the first and sixth seasons of Kiefer Sutherland's long-running action series "24" (Fox, 2001-2010), and in between, dipped his toe into feature films with a role in the gory remake of "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre" (2003). Permanent cast roles, however, remained elusive for the actor, with such series efforts as "Veritas: The Quest" (ABC, 2003-04) and "Conviction" (NBC, 2006) being canceled within a single season or less. A starring role in the sleazy biker movie "Hell Ride" (2008) and the widely panned sci-fi thriller "Skyline" (2010) did little to boost Balfour's profile in cinemas. Although with the Stephen...

A familiar face in the new millennium, actor Eric Balfour found the majority of his success with recurring roles on popular television series, rather than in feature films or as the lead of an ongoing series of his own.

A starring role in the sleazy biker movie "Hell Ride" (2008) and the widely panned sci-fi thriller "Skyline" (2010) did little to boost Balfour's profile in cinemas. Although with the Stephen King-inspired supernatural drama "Haven" (Syfy, 2010- ) it seemed as if the actor may have at last found the stable TV role he had sought for so long. Having established himself as a dependable player on a wide array of projects, Balfour remained one of the busier young actors on television.
