large part in the intelligence of the Authority and especially enjoys
enhanced interrogation. Hey, he’s got that vampy face. One can see why he keeps playing supernatural characters. Heyerdahl played the ancient Volturi vampire Marcus in three of the “Twilight” movies, a demon in “Supernatural” and a wraith in “Stargate: Atlantis.”
