Bren Foster got his big acting break on "Days of Our Lives" (NBC, 1965-) before showcasing his martial arts champion background in various Steven Seagal vehicles and post-apocalyptic TV drama "The Last Ship" (TNT, 2014-). Born to a Cypriot father and Anglo-Irish mother in London, Foster moved to Australia with his family aged three, and shortly after began taking up various martial arts. He went on to achieve nine different world championship titles and black belts in hapkido, taekwondo and hwarangdo, as well as competing as a bodybuilder. But Foster also pursued acting ambitions, and after traveling to New York to study at the Barrow Group Theater he took a three-year drama course at the University of Western Sydney. He made his screen debut playing Shadowman #2 in Billy Zane martial arts flick "Invincible" (2001) and after a three-episode stint in soap opera institution "Home and Away" (Seven Network, 1988-), landed one-off roles in crime dramas "The Strip" (Nine Network, 2008) and "East West 101" (SBS, 2007-2011). Having previously appeared in documentary "XMA: Xtreme Martial Arts" (2003), Foster then got the chance to further showcase his martial arts skills as a guest expert on "Fight Science" (National Geographic Channel, 2008-10). By this point his acting career was also flourishing, with his performance as a prisoner attempting to steer his younger brother on the right path in indie drama "Cedar Boys" (2009) receiving critical acclaim. Two years later he landed his first major lead role playing a Taekwondo champion forced to compete in a deadly tournament to free his kidnapped fiancee in "Bad to the Bone" (2011) and was cast as drug lord Quinn Hudson in "Days of Our Lives" (NBC, 1965-). During his stint on the soap, Foster also appeared in the "Femme Fatales" (Cinemax, 2011-12) and "Boys on Film" anthologies, played Christina Ricci's confederate Sergeant husband in Civil War drama "War Flowers" (2012) and enjoyed a two-episode stint on "Melissa and Joey" (ABC Family, 2010-15). Foster then appeared in two consecutive Steven Seagal vehicles, firstly in the supporting role of private security guard Bradley in "Maximum Conviction" (2012) and then in the lead role of protege Hurst in "Force of Execution" (2013). Foster then joined the second season cast of global pandemic drama "The Last Ship" (TNT, 2014-) as Chief Petty Officer Wolf Taylor and became a regular of low-budget Australian sci-fi cinema with supporting roles in "Infini" (2015), "Terminus" (2015) and "Science Fiction Volume One: The Osiris Child" (2016).
