Another highlight for Battlestar Galactica fans, but also for the fans of Supernatural, because Tahmoh Penikett comes to FedCon 27 in Bonn.
Tahmoh is still thrilled to have played Lieutenant Karl “Helo” Agathon in the Emmy Nominated sci-fi series Battlestar Galactica, for which he received the prestigious Peabody Award. Prior to Battlestar Galactica, the actor was part of the cast of the critically acclaimed Canadian series The Cold Squad last season. His performance in this series earned him a LEO award. This was followed by Joss Whedon’s sci-fi series Dollhouse, which unfortunately was discontinued after two dives.
In addition, Tahmoh Penikett has starred in many more series, including Whistler (The N), Smallville (Fox), The L Word (Showtime) and Supernatural (The CW). He starred in the short film Trapped Ashes, directed by renowned director Monte Hellman and debuting at the Cannes Film Festival. Tahmoh had two films released in 2007, Trick or Treat (Warner Bros) and The Green Chain (Movie Central) and debuted at the Vancouver Film Festival. In 2010, he also starred as Matt Ellman in the four-hour TV adaptation Riverworld on Syfy.
Tahmoh Penikett was born in Whitehorse (Yukon, Canada) and his background has strong connections with the Upper Tanana tribe and its traditions, which gave him the love of storytelling. He has a strong bond with his family, with whom he spends time whenever possible. In his free time Tahmoh likes to do sports, among other things as a kickboxer.
