Growing up, Wayne Bastrup was never the first up on a stage. More inclined to play sports, build a tree house, or get lost in a good book, acting would become the antidote for this shy, introverted, kid from a small, working class Washington State town. Early on, Wayne showed a particular passion and aptitude for the arts. He realized that through acting and music he could be emotional without consequence or judgement, and found that drawing, photography and design were outlets for personal expression. Although he studied acting, he chose architecture as his college major. He also taught himself the drums. He would graduate from the University of Washington with a Masters in Architecture. While Wayne found work as an architect, he continued to act in a variety of local independent films and commercials. He also found time to pursue music. In 2008 he founded the Seattle based rock band 'Gunbunny' and played professionally throughout the West Coast, opening for many well-known national acts. In 2009 he booked a role on TNT's Leverage, opposite Academy award-winning actor Timothy Hutton. Soon after, Wayne decided to leave the Pacific Northwest and head for Hollywood. He began training at the prestigious Actors Workshop with RJ Adams and Rob Adams, embracing their 'Meissner' approach. Over the last few years, he has successfully appeared, and starred, in a plethora of award-winning films and TV shows. Ahead of his most recent role in Paramount Studios Terminator Genysis, some of his credits include: Leverage, Awake, Whitney, CSI: NY, Radio America, and The Mentalist. He can also be seen in the up and coming Bill Pohlad (12 Years A Slave) directed feature Love and Mercy. Wayne is represented by Scott Vandiver of Spotlight Management. When not filming or traveling, Wayne spends time with his family, hiking the Hollywood Hills with their dog Maple, a Chihuahua-Beagle mix the family rescued from an animal shelter in Los Angeles. Wayne is an advocate for animal rights and supports The Humane Society of the United States as well as the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research.
