I'm an actor, I tell stories and make things. Some you'll like and some you won't. It's ok. I like to think that the antagonists have hearts too!
Eddie has starred in Shadow of Doubt for the Discovery ID channel and has assumed the role of both detective and suspect in a number of other true crime TV shows. He has also appeared in many short films, industrials and on stage. One of his more acclaimed theater roles was that of straight man, Peter Hunter, in the comedy No Sex Please, Were British.
Eddie’s most recent projects include playing a pedophile stepfather in the thriller short film Through the Blinds; special investigator, Donnie Branch, for People Magazine Investigates; and a racist border patrol agent in a miniseries titled Things Eternal that is currently being shopped to Amazon.
