Chad Rook is the Canadian actor who portrays Captain Ahab on ABC's Once Upon a Time.


Chad Rook was born on March 29, 1982 in Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada.[1] At an early age, Rook caught the "acting bug" after being cast in a school play. Throughout his teenage years, Chad knew what he wanted to pursue and after finishing high school, he entered into a model and talent convention.[1] As a result, he won seven out of the eight events and soon signed to a modelling contract that lead him to appear in such campaigns as GAP, Gucci eyewear and Swiss Army.[1]

Although a modelling career offered an abundance of opportunities, Rook's main focus was still on acting and he soon relocated to Vancouver, British Columbia to pursue his dream further.[1]

After obtaining an agent, Chad landed a supporting role in the movie Sleepover Nightmare before appearing in memorable television shows such as The Flash, Supernatural, Bates Motel, iZombie, Timeless and The Secret Circle.[1]

With the continued success of his acting career, Rook now operates his own production company, "Checkmate Films", which gives him the chance to not only act, but to write and direct as well.[1]
