Reared in a household which he describes as ‘half-British, half-American, all-Canadian’, David Haydn-Jones’ family cherished the arts and international travel. David was admitted to the prestigious McGill University, where he pursued a degree in architecture with electives within the arts, including literature and theatre. He regularly performed at local comedy clubs, while also acting in plays from Shakespeare, Moliere, and Gilbert and Sullivan. After university, David and a friend formed a comedy duo, and he was discovered while performing at the world-renowned “Just for Laughs Comedy Festival” in Montreal.
Following appearances on such TV shows as “Melrose Place” and “Buffy the Vampire Slayer”, David moved to LA. He has starred in three Hallmark movies, including “Bridal Wave” and “My Christmas Dream”. David’s ability to play the ‘everyday man’ as well as the leading man, opposite such talented co-stars as Taraji P. Henson and Amy Acker, has earned him comparisons to golden Hollywood screen star, Cary Grant. David has featured in a number of other TV shows and movies, as well as starring in the Canadian programs “Debra” and “Rumours”.
David portrays British Man of Letters Arthur Ketch on “Supernatural”, a suave, but sociopathic, monster hunter, who first appeared in season 13, but has recently returned to the show in the final season. David has enjoyed delving into a role unlike anything he has ever played, but still retaining his customary charm and passionate attention to detail. He also appreciates the sincere, underlying messages of the show’s culture which fosters a sense of family and charitable work within the local and international fan-base.
