Victor Webster : Ben

Victor Webster was born in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. In the summer of 1986 Victor and his family moved to San Clemente, CA where he attended high school. Webster was interested in acting from a very early age and participating in many school plays and theater classes helped him to realize his love of the art. As a teenager, Webster searched for a productive outlet in order to avoid getting into too much trouble. He began to study, and later teach, martial arts, which proved to be a perfect fit for him.

After graduation he attended Saddleback College and then chose to go into the world of business in an effort to carve out a life for himself. He became a stockbroker and later owned and operated an import/export company. Unfortunately, his work wasn’t fulfilling but a chance encounter provided him an opportunity to pursue his true dream of acting.

Webster was approached for an acting gig and landed the job starring on an NBC daytime series. He immediately followed that with a starring role on the Emmy® Award winning AMC Network series “The Lot” and then the number one nationally syndicated action series “Mutant X.” With this, Webster caught the attention of People magazine and was named one of their 50 Most Eligible Bachelors. He began doing guest roles on other series while working on “Mutant X,” which included a notable role in 2003 as a boyfriend of Samantha’s on HBO’s “Sex and the City.”
Webster’s film career began with the the box office smash “Bringing Down the House.” During this time he alternated between television and film roles. His guest star credits include roles on shows such as “Bones,” “CSI,” “NCIS,” “Criminal Minds,” “Necessary Roughness” and “Single Ladies.” He has also had recurring roles on a variety of series including “Related,” “Charmed,” Lincoln Heights,” Harper’s Island,” “Melrose Place” and “Castle.”

On the big screen, Webster has had roles in movies such as “Must Love Dogs,” “Surrogates” and “Why Did I Get Married Too?” Since 2011 he has starred as the Scorpion King in the third and fourth installments of the franchise; “The Scorpion King 3: Battle for Redemption” and “The Scorpion King 4: Quest for Power.” His most recent film project was alongside Steven Seagal in the action film “A Good Man.”

Though he has kept busy with his acting career he has never given up his love, and great talent, for martial arts. Webster holds a black belt in Tae Kwon Do and has taught and competed in many forms of martial arts. He holds an undefeated record as a heavyweight in both Tae Kwon Do competition and amateur kick boxing and is also a multiple medal winner in the no gi jiu jitsu world championships.

Currently, Victor stars in the television show “Continuum,” which has recently begun its fourth season.
