Dana Ashbrook, Rich
Dana AshbrookLightweightDana Ashbrook’s breakthrough into pop-culture awareness was with his intense portrayal of Laura Palmer’s hot-tempered, longhaired boyfriend Bobby Briggs in the legendary TV series Twin Peaks and movie Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me, which The Washington Post termed a “cogitation on the intersection of Heaven, Hell, and Washington State.” The definitive Gold Box DVD of Twin Peaks recently was released, and a David Lynch album of musical collaborations from the movie came out in 2009.
    The San Diego, California-born actor earned his SAG card on Cagney & Lacey and has appeared in numerous TV series, including The Outer Limits, Crisis Center, Charmed, and Deadwood. He had a recurring starring role in Dawson’s Creek as the greedy stockbroker Rich Rinaldi, and was a series regular on The Kill Point as womanizer Tony. Most recently, Ashbrook appeared on Starz in season two of the Crash TV series, portraying a charismatic gambler who played fast and loose with the law.
    On the big screen, Ashbrook has starred in She’s Out of Control, Ghost Dad, Comfortably Numb, Interstate 5, and Angels Don’t Sleep Here.
    With a particular knack for playing dangerous characters who are often love interests, Ashbrook says he finds it more interesting to play “the messed-up guys with a colorful past.” Ashbrook currently resides in New York City.
