Mini Bio (1)

Trevor Torseth, was born in Fort Frances, a hinterland on the border between Ontario and Minnesota - a very large stone's throw into Canada. Adolescence, a hearty appetite and a bricklayer's frame brought him to the Minnesota gridiron; however, he soon gave up football for the stage after being cast as "Archie Lee" in Tennessee Williams' The Long Stay Cut Short. A casting decision that would foretell future success with Williams. After earning his degree from Prestigious St. Cloud State University, he was cast in the Minneapolis production of a Tony 'n Tina's Wedding. This success along with the requisite restlessness born out of a Midwestern thespian's existence, brought Torseth to Los Angeles. In L.A. he bounced around the usual haunts of Hollywood drudgery until his bruising, fearless, and absurdly comic portrayal of "Jake" in Williams' 27 Wagons Full of Cotton. Torseth established his persona as an aching bull of a performer as he devoured every scene in Tennessee's searing one-act. He went onto play heavies in films such as Trail of Blood, NoNames, and Lake Dead, as well as pointed guest stars on television in NCIS, American Horror Story, Chuck, Ringer and most notably as the tortured homeless vet Ron Hacker in the ensemble series LOOK. With Lifeboat Productions upcoming series release of Sequestered he looks to cement his place playing a Navy Seal. Trevor Torseth, the actor, the musician and the man, is many things: a raging beast, a Viking Lorax, and the owner of every room he's ever been in.

Trevor's father, William James Torseth II, swears he was named after acclaimed actor, Trevor Howard; however, his mother, Duchess Barbara Joice Asplund, adamantly denies this. To this day the origin of his name remains a mystery.
When Kathy Lindboe directed her first feature (NoNames) she called up her old college friends, Casey Greig, Dan Hopman and Trevor to play supporting roles. When production was trying to decide on a song for the characters in the movie to drunkenly sing along with, Casey suggested they ask Trevor if they could use one of his songs called, Christmas Shakes. Coincidentally, it was a song the old friends had been known to drunkenly sing along with.
