The son of an actress and a college theatre director, Dana Ashbrook had no problem finding inspiration to get into acting. His early career included parts in the television series "Cagney & Lacey" and "Knots Landing," which led to his being cast in such cult horror films as "Return of the Living Dead Part II" and "Waxwork." Ashbrook's breakout role came in 1990, when he portrayed Laura Palmer's boyfriend, Bobby Briggs, in the show "Twin Peaks," a role he reprised in David Lynch's film prequel "Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me" in 1992. While he continued to be drawn to genre offerings--in 1995, he starred in "W.E.I.R.D. World," a television pilot written and produced by the team responsible for the "Tales from the Crypt" HBO series--he eventually took on a more conventional co-starring role in the television drama "Crisis Center." After appearing in such series as "Dawson's Creek" and "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit," Ashbrook co-starred in the television series "Crash."
