Actor Daniel Cudmore (X-Men, Twilight) appears at Big Wow! ComicFest on Saturday April 18th!

Born in Vancouver and raised in Squamish, British Columbia, Daniel grew up in an athletic household. Daniel’s breakout role came shortly after he made the transition from college star to actor, when Bryan Singer cast him alongside Patrick Stewart, Hugh Jackman, Sir Ian Mckellen, and Halle Berry in the 2003 superhero film X2, as Colossus, the strongest member of the X-Men team. Daniel’s character was brought back in the film’s sequel X-Men: The Last Stand. He has since showcased his extraordinary talents on numerous television shows including “Stargate SG-1,” “Supernatural,” and “Psych.” However, it is Daniel’s role as Felix in the popular Summit Entertainment film franchise The Twilight Saga that has given this actor international recognition.
