Early life

Boreanaz was born on May 16, 1969 in Buffalo, New York and grew up in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where his father, Dave Roberts, was a weatherman for ABC-owned WPVI-TV channel 6, and his mother, Patti Boreanaz, is a travel agent.[1] He is of Italian descent on his father's side (the surname Boreanaz is of Northern Italian origin) and Czech on his mother's side.[2][3] He is Roman Catholic.[4]

Boreanaz attended Rosemont School of the Holy Child in his early years and then high school at Malvern Preparatory School in Malvern, Pennsylvania, and went to college at Ithaca College in Ithaca, New York.[5] After graduating, Boreanaz moved to Hollywood, California to pursue an acting career.

He has two sisters: Beth Boreanaz, who is a history and math teacher at The Shipley School, and Bo Boreanaz, who is a married mother of two.

Career

Boreanaz's first acting appearance was a guest spot on the hit American sitcom, Married... with Children, as Kelly's biker boyfriend. He was cast in the television series Buffy the Vampire Slayer, after encouragement from his first wife, Ingrid Quinn, to audition. In the cult series, he played the mysterious Angel, a vampire cursed with a soul as punishment for his past sins. The show became enormously successful and Boreanaz starred in a spin-off series, Angel, which gave the character a chance to evolve and concentrated on Angel's battle for redemption for the sins he committed before he regained his soul. He appeared on Buffy from 1997 to 1999, at which point he began starring in Angel, which ran until 2004, with some guest appearances on Buffy after his departure.

Boreanaz's only starring role in a major theatrical film was in 2001's slasher horror film, Valentine, alongside Denise Richards and Katherine Heigl. In 2002, he had a supporting role in a Lifetime television movie titled I'm with Lucy!. In 2003, he appeared in the music video for singer Dido's hit single "White Flag", and was the voice of Leon (Squall Leonhart) in the video game Kingdom Hearts, but he did not reprise his role in the sequel.

In 2005, Boreanaz began starring opposite Emily Deschanel on the current prime time television series, Bones. He also appeared in These Girls, a Canadian film in which he played a biker; the film received a limited theatrical release in Canada in March 2006, after premiering at the Toronto Film Festival and the Vancouver International Film Festival. He has also starred in the independent films Mr. Fix it and Suffering Man's Charity (released on DVD as Ghost Writer), as well as the direct-to-DVD sequel The Crow: Wicked Prayer in which he starred alongside Tara Reid. In 2006, he starred in another DVD release, The Hard Easy, which also starred Nick Lachey.

In that same year, he also voiced Hal Jordan in the direct to video DC Comics animated feature Justice League: The New Frontier. In the season three finale of his TV series Bones, Boreanaz's character Seeley Booth is seen in his bathtub reading an issue of Green Lantern, the character he voiced in the Justice League: The New Frontier movie.

As well as being an executive producer on Bones since its third season, Boreanaz also directed the episode "The Bones That Foam." This was his second time as a director; in Angel's fifth and final season Boreanaz directed the episode "Soul Purpose." It has also since been reported by Hart Hanson, the creator of Bones, that Boreanaz would direct the series' 100th episode airing in the fifth season. Boreanaz denies [6] the internet rumor that he was the original first choice for the role of Bruce Wayne/Batman in Batman Begins. He was also reportedly considered to play Clark Kent/Superman in Superman Returns. He was the original choice for the character Matt Addison in Resident Evil, but turned down the part due to scheduling conflicts with his TV series Angel.

Personal life

Boreanaz lives in Los Angeles, California. He was married to Ingrid Quinn from June 7, 1997 to October 1999, and has been married to actress and Playboy model Jaime Bergman since November 24, 2001. He and Jaime have a son, Jaden Rayne, born May 1, 2002; their daughter, Bardot Vita, was born on August 31, 2009. He is a fan of the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Philadelphia Flyers and has written professional sports blogs and also presented on sports radio shows for the hockey team; his passion for hockey was even written into Seeley Booth's character on Bones, leading to a hockey-themed episode titled "The Fire in the Ice."

Jaime Bergman guest starred briefly in a cameo appearance in one episode of Angel's fifth and final season, as a sort of joke between him and his wife which he referred to as "lots of fun." They have not acted together since.

In 2004, Boreanaz underwent reconstructive surgery on the ACL of his left knee, a result of a running injury he suffered in high school that was not fully corrected at that time[7]. His recovery did not prevent Angel production from continuing, but did limit his mobility and physical activities in several episodes, including his directorial debut, Soul Purpose.[8][9]

He is close friends with his co-star Emily Deschanel and is also best friends with Christian Kane with whom he knew prior to working on Angel.

According to the ear of some fans, in 2009-10 Boreanaz has lent his voice to more than one television commercial including General Motors products.
