Trevor Torseth was born in the hinterland on the border between Ontario and Minnesota a stone's throw into Canada. Adolescence and a bricklayer's frame brought him to football on the Minnesota gridiron. He soon found his sea legs on 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 a Bachelor's degree from St. Cloud State University in Minnesota he was cast in the Minneapolis production of 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 as well as pointed guest roles on television - most notably as the tortured homeless vet Ron Hacker in the ensemble series LOOK. Trevor Torseth, the actor and the man, is many things: a raging beast, a Viking Lorax, and the owner of every room he's ever been in.
