After moving out to Los Angeles from his home on the east coast, slight and dark-eyed character actor Tony Amendola began his career on stage. Amendola made his screen debut with the short-lived socialite-cum-detective series "Partners in Crime" (1984), which served as a springboard for a guest role on the hit series "L.A. Law" and a subsequent appearance on "Seinfeld" as a man that Kramer thought might have been Salman Rushdie. Throughout the '90s and '00s, the actor became an increasingly more frequent face in film and television, often appearing and re-appearing as separate characters on such series as "CSI," "The Practice," and the animated "Spawn," and in such movies as "The Mask of Zorro" and its sequel. Amendola's fantasy-driven guest roles on a number of series including "Angel," "Charmed," "Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman," and "Star Trek: Voyager" helped him land the recurring role of the cautious but friendly Jaffa leader Bra'tac on the cult sci-fi hit "Stargate SG-1." Despite that well-known portrayal, Amendola has a knack for depicting unseemly types in such projects as the drug drama "Blow" and the serial-killer series "Dexter," on which the actor played a murderer of the title character's mother.
