Here is a clip of Mr. Hogan teaching a workshop for Seattle actors:
Mr. Hogan started acting at Seattle University in 1998. After graduating in 2000 with a degree in Criminal Justice (he briefly entertained the idea of going into law enforcement), he immediately hit the boards, working at the Empty Space Theatre (now extinct) as a stage hand, Northwest Actor’s Studio, and Shakespeare Northwest’s inaugural season. Almost 13 years later, as a seasoned stage professional and member of the Actors’ Equity Association, he has performed on stage over 400 times.
In 2003, he and his wife moved to Los Angeles, California, to test the waters of Hollywood. During his short stay in Los Angeles, he booked a few industrial commercials, a number of short films, and a feature film. He managed to get commercial representation within six months of moving and was a member of The Actors’ Network, an outstanding resource for the actor in Los Angeles. He studied with Tom Todoroff, where he met a director who put him in a production of Philip Ridley’s groundbreaking play, The Pitchfork Disney.
After about a year in Los Angeles, Mr. Hogan returned to Seattle with his fiancee’ to get married and pursue their acting careers back at home, surrounded by family. Since returning home, Mr. Hogan has worked in many critically acclaimed stage productions – receiving a Seattle Times Footlight Award for Outstanding Acting twice (2009 and 2012), and his work as a film actor as come to fruition. Since 2011, he works regularly as a film actor, and has appeared on NBC’s Grimm, many short films, and the feature film Shadowed in a leading role.
