Sam Witwer is the American actor who portrays Mr. Hyde on ABC's Once Upon a Time.


Samuel Stewart "Sam" Witwer grew up in Glenview, Illinois,[3] a small suburb outside of Chicago. He attended Glenbrook South High School,[3] during which time he was involved in drama and theater classes, as well as being the lead singer of a high school band called "Love Plumber". He attended the Juilliard School for a time before moving to Los Angeles.[4]

Witwer claims that his first on-screen credit was that of a Chicago Bulls commercial.[5] He soon found himself in speaking roles on hit television series, such as ER.[6]

Witwer's first major recurring role came in the form of portraying Lt. Crashdown on Battlestar Galactica,[6] although he has credited much of his current success to his role as Neil Perry on the Showtime series Dexter.[6] Witwer also appeared as Wayne Jessup in the movie The Mist.[6]

From 2008 to 2009, Witwer was cast Season 8 of Smallville as Davis Bloome.[6] Although uncredited, Witwer also played the full-physical form of the show's version of Zod at the end of the Season 8 finale.[7] Witwer's performance in Smallville was incredibly well-received, and he has stated that his experience on the show had opened more opportunities for him in the future of acting.

Witwer made a cameo appearance in The Walking Dead as a dead (zombie) soldier in a tank in the Season 1 episode "Days Gone Bye"[6] which reunited him with director Frank Darabont from The Mist. Witwer then starred in the North American remake of Being Human. He played the role of vampire Aidan Waite.[6] In July 2018, Witwer joined the cast of the CW's Supergirl as Ben Lockwood/Agent Liberty.[8]

He voiced Ocean Master in the animated film Justice League: Throne of Atlantis[9] for the DC Universe Animated Original Movies series, replacing fellow Star Wars actor Steven Blum from Justice League: War. He also voiced protagonist Galen Marek/Starkiller in the successful multimedia project Star Wars: The Force Unleashed,[10] as well as the Son and Darth Maul in Cartoon Network's Star Wars: The Clone Wars[11] and Emperor Palpatine in Star Wars Rebels.[11] In 2018, Witwer reprised his portrayal as Darth Maul and performed the voice acting role for the character in the Star Wars anthology film Solo: A Star Wars Story.[12]
