TIM ABELL
Biography

as of June 1997

Tim Abell stars as Benny Ray Riddle, an ex-Marine Corps sniper and expert in the use of all firearms.

Raised in Lanham, Maryland and Manassas, Virginia by a blue-collar family, Tim Abell did not get the acting bug until he left the army and began attending college at the University of Maryland. To work his way through college, Abell began teaching ball room dancing at the Arthur Murray Dance Studio. While at the university, he began taking a few of the "acting for non-actors" classes and realized that this was the career path that he wanted to pursue. This career choice led Tim to Los Angeles where to supplement his income, while trying to establish himself, he worked as a carpenter and a bartender. To hone his acting abilities, Abell also began taking acting classes in Los Angeles with Jeff Corey. This dedication to his craft and ambition to succeed in Hollywood landed him a role that has become a highly watched character on American Cybercast's Internet soap opera, "The Spot."

Playing `Jeff Benton' in a show that has as many as 200,000 online viewers a day has extended Tim's popularity to Hollywood, where he has starred in several movies.
Recently he completed filming "Executive Command," co-starring with Michael Dudikoff and Paul Winfield and "Steel Sharks," starring Gary Busey and Billy Dee Williams and directed by Rod McDonald. Both of these movies show-off Tim's skills as a martial artist. His combat experiences come from having been a U.S. Army Ranger before becoming an actor. Abell's other film credits include starring roles in "Storm Trooper" by Cinetel Film, "Hybrid" by American Indie Pictures and Royal Oaks Entertainment's "Fugitive Rage."

The big and small screens are not the only place that Abell can be found. Tim has a promising career on the stage as well. Tim's Los Angeles appearances include Rocks at The Room Upstairs, Beltway Roulette at Le Cafe, Pearly's and Heavens Den at The Complex, The White Biting Dog at the Odyssey Theatre and Fool For Love at the Powerhouse Theatre. Tim has also appeared in Washington D.C. in Colorblind at the Gala Theatre, Edward II at the Source Theatre, On Guard at the Sanctuary Theatre and Ah, Wilderness at the Studio Theatre.

Currently, Tim resides in the Granada Hills area with his wife, who he met on the dance floor of the Arthur Murray Dance School and a menagerie of animals that includes three dogs, two cats and six rabbits.
