Where Have I Seen You Before, Dieter Braun?

By  |  1 Comment

A very familiar face joined the cast in season 5, and fans of sci-fi/fantasy television and film were very excited about. Christopher Heyerdahl filled the role of Authority member, Dieter Braun. Dieter was the interrogation specialist and her loved experimenting with various torture devices. A particular favorite was silver injections for vampires. Nasty business.

Christopher Heyerdahl as Dieter Braun

I recognized Heyerdahl immediately from Syfy’s series, [easyazon-link asin=”B002CLKP00″]Sanctuary[/easyazon-link]. Fans of the popular AMC series, [easyazon-link asin=”B0075FF5QM”]Hell On Wheels[/easyazon-link] recognize him as The Swede, and [easyazon-link asin=”B0035KD67G”]The Twilight Saga: New Moon[/easyazon-link] fans know him as one of the Volturi, Marcus. Others may know Heyerdahl as Kevin Reikle from [easyazon-link asin=”B002ZCY872″]Caprica[/easyazon-link], Todd the Wraith from Stargate: Atlantis, Zor-El from the [easyazon-link asin=”B004XWLN20″]Smallville[/easyazon-link] series, and my personal favorite, Alistair from [easyazon-link asin=”B001FB4W0C”]Supernatural[/easyazon-link]. Next to Alistair, Dieter was a kitty-cat.

Genre experts would have my head if I didn’t also mention Christopher’s role in [easyazon-link asin=”B0002VEUV2″]The Chronicles of Riddick[/easyazon-link], [easyazon-link asin=”B004F88IIO”]Andromeda[/easyazon-link] and [easyazon-link asin=”B002E01LSY”]Blade: Trinity[/easyazon-link], but back in the day Christopher landed a guest spot in one episode of 21 Jump Street. How many of you knew that?

    I was blown away when I saw him in the season finale of Hell on Wheels…he was so twisted and the ending was shocking!
