From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

David Bedella (born September 25, 1962 in Chicago, Illinois) is an American TV and stage actor.

He graduated from Merrillville High School in Merrillville, Indiana.

Bedella is perhaps most noted for his role in Jerry Springer - The Opera, where he played both the Warm Up Man (in the First Act) and Satan in the Second. The character of the Warm Up Man was named "Jonathan Wierus", after the 15th century devil worshipper and occultist, Johann Weyer (who was also known as Wierus). For this role, Bedella received the 2004 Laurence Olivier Theatre Award for Best Musical Actor. More recently, Bedella has been playing the title role in Hedwig and the Angry Inch.

He has also appeared in musicals such as Oh What A Night With Luke B (in 2002, as Brutus), HMS Pinafore (in 2000), and Jesus Christ Superstar with Ted Neeley from 1992 to 1995, where he played Caiaphas.

David Bedella appeared in the British hospital drama Holby City, where he played plastic surgeon Dr. Carlos Fashola, making his first appearance on July 27, 2004.

Bedella has also had minor roles in a number of movies, including Batman Begins, Red Light Runners and Alexander.

He has just finished a 16-month run playing Frank N Furter in the 2006/2007 UK tour of Richard O'Brien's The Rocky Horror Show. He is also making a return to the role during the 2009/2010 UK tour.

Bedella is a devout Christian, and his partner is the minister of a church in London.

His voice type is baritone, although he can successfully hit notes well into the bass, tenor and even the countertenor range. An example of this can be heard in some parts of his performance in Jerry Springer The Opera.

In 2008 he played the role of Alexander Molokov in a concert version of Chess at the Royal Albert Hall on May 12-13, 2008.
