Blaine DeBeers on “iZombie”
David Anders plays Blaine, the zombie responsible for Liv’s (Rose McIver) transformation, on The CW’s hit drama “iZombie.”
Anders is well known to television audiences as the evil Julian Sark on the fan-favorite “Alias,” and as Adam Monroe/Takezo Kensei, Hiro’s samurai-turned-bad-guy idol on “Heroes.” He is also known for a recurring stint as John Gilbert on The CW hit series, “The Vampire Diaries,” and his starring role in the SyFy Channel’s adaptation of Stephen King’s “Children of the Corn.”
Other television credits include a recurring role on the smash hit series “Once Upon A Time,” as Storybrooke’s Doctor Whale, and the fourth season of Fantasy World’s “Doctor Frankenstein,” “Necessary Roughness,” alongside John Stamos, and guest star appearances on “Grey’s Anatomy,” “Warehouse 13,” “Deadwood,” “C.S.I,” “C.S.I: Miami” and “Charmed.” His feature film work includes “Into the Blue 2” and the offbeat, underground zombie feature “The Revenant.”
In his spare time, Anders teaches summer tennis courses to children in Los Angeles. When he’s not on the court, he can likely be found on the golf course. He plays golf as often as he can, including participating in celebrity Pro-Am events and charity events across the country.
