      Although blessed with good looks, Canadian actor Michael Eklund is really a character actor at heart, and has shown an enthusiastic ability to pursue roles that have allowed him a certain degree of anonymity. Canadian audiences will probably best recognize Eklund from his role as the shifty Det. Rene Desjardins on the Vancouver, British Columbia-set television crime show "Intelligence" (CBC, 2006-07), his stint on the hard-hitting 10-part drama "Terminal City" (The Movie Network, 2005), and his performance as ex-con Aaron in the crime film "Walk All Over Me" (2007). American viewers, however, will know Eklund best from his co-starring role as the villain in the 2013 thriller "The Call," starring Halle Berry, and from his role as a strange experimental patient on an episode of the sci-fi favorite "Fringe" (Fox, 2008-2013). Taking a cue from the great character actors of the past, Eklund found creative freedom by becoming a chameleon. He also made a decision early on that he would never turn down a role, challenging himself to always find something of worth in even the lowliest of genre work.
