Mini Bio (1)

Brett Stimely grew up in Washington State and learned at a very young age that hard work and following your dreams will take you anywhere you need to go in life. An ambitious teenager, Brett (at fourteen) ran his own outboard motor repair business out of the home garage and became a private pilot at the age of 16. Brett later excelled in business marketing and dentistry at the University of Washington.

A student of the Rational Theatre in Munich, Brett advanced from humble beginnings as a hand model to appearing in over 75 European commercials. After winning numerous awards for his performances in Europe, Brett relocated to Los Angeles and received training from the legendary acting teacher, Harry Mastrogeorge.

Soon thereafter, Brett made his mark in Daytime television, playing the recurring roles of Attorney Joshua Sloane on Sunset Beach, and the popular Dr. Jay Garvin on The Bold And The Beautiful.

Other TV credits include: Red Shoe Diaries, Party Down, and the FX Channel's top rated show The Shield.

Brett played the lead as "Hollis" in the 2012 film Ray Bradbury's Kaleidoscope. Kaleidoscope is the official film (from the short story of the same name) that inspired Oscar favorite Gravity.

Notable recent motion picture roles include Watchmen, Transformers: Dark of the Moon and Tom Hank's Parkland.

Brett's impressive array of leading and supporting roles leaves him yet to find a role he can't make his own.

He has 5 film projects slated for 2014.

Brett is active in many organizations, including the Boys & Girls Club of Santa Monica, the Olive Crest Homes and Services for Abused Children, and The Good News Foundation. (February 10, 2014)
