Titus Welliver was an American actor who appeared in dozens of films and TV shows over the course of his 25-plus year acting career, most notably as the star of the Amazon Studios cop drama "Bosch" (Amazon Studios, 2014- ). Born in New Haven, Connecticut and raised in New York and Philadelphia, Welliver was fortunate enough to have had a creative upbringing. His father was a famous landscape artist, while his mother worked as a fashion illustrator, so the Welliver house was always filled with poets, artists and various other creative types when Titus was growing up. Although Welliver initially intended on following in his father's footsteps by becoming a landscape artist, by his late teens he began focusing on a career in acting instead. With that in mind, Welliver packed his bags and moved to New York City. He enrolled in classes at New York's famed HB Acting Studio, and also studied at New York University. After years of honing his craft with non-paid work, Welliver nabbed his first paid acting role with a small part in the Charlie Sheen action drama "Navy Seals" (1990). The following year he landed a small role in Oliver Stone's "The Doors" (1991), and continued nabbing film and TV roles throughout the remainder of the decade. Welliver's first big break came in 1997 when he joined the cast of Steven Bochco's short lived cop drama "Brooklyn South" (CBS, 1997-98). The series last for one season, but it wouldn't be the last time Welliver played a cop on TV. Over the next several years Welliver played law enforcement agents on a variety of TV dramas, including "NYPD Blue" (ABC, 1993-2005), "Big Apple" (CBS, 2001) and "Numbers" (CBS, 2005-2010). Then in 2004 Welliver was cast on the HBO period drama "Deadwood" (HBO, 2004-06). He played Silas Adams on the series, which lasted three seasons. Working on "Deadwood" also gave Welliver the opportunity to once again work with the legendary TV writer David Milch (the two had previously worked together on "NYPD Blue"). After "Deadwood" ended its run, Welliver continued working steadily in films and on TV throughout the 2000s and 2010s. In 2014 he returned to familiar territory when he was cast as the LAPD police officer Harry Bosch on the Amazon Studios series "Bosch," which entered its third season in 2017. The previous year, Welliver had the opportunity to work with director Ben Affleck for a fourth time when he was cast in the Prohibition Era crime drama "Live By Night." Up until that point, Welliver had previously appeared in Affleck's "Gone Baby Gone" (2007), "The Town" (2010), and "Argo" (2012).
