Early life and educationEdit

Omundson was born in St. Joseph, Missouri, to a railroad worker father and teacher mother.[1] After his family moved to Bellevue, Washington, he started to study theater at the age of twelve at the Seattle Children's Theater, and interned at various theaters during his high school years. With acting as his primary focus, he studied during the summer of his junior year in New York City at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts. For two years in a row, he was Washington State Debate Champion in Dramatic Interpretation.

At the age of 13, Omundson spent a month traveling in Germany and Austria with his father, a time he views as one of the most formative months of his life.[2] After graduating from Bellevue, Washington's Interlake High School in 1987,[3] Omundson went to the University of Southern California where he graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Theater. He won USC's Jack Nicholson Award and James and Nony Doolittle Award for outstanding achievements in acting.[4]

CareerEdit

Omundson voices the character Aric Jorgan in the MMORPG Star Wars: The Old Republic. Aric Jorgan is the first companion for the Republic Trooper class. In 2014 Omundson had a guest role on The CW's Supernatural especially written for him, the role of the biblical Cain.[2] He also played a major character in the 2006 series Psych where he portrayed Detective Carlton Lassiter.

Personal lifeEdit

Omundson lives in Los Angeles, California with his wife, Allison, and their daughters, Lily (2002)[5] and Nora (2004).[6] In late April 2017 he suffered a major stroke,[7] but was able to briefly reprise his role as Carlton Lassiter in Psych: The Movie, and continues to recover.[8][9]
