Bio

Among Aaron Blakely's multiple TV appearances is a recurring role on the Emmy nominated series, The Man in the High Castle, where he guest stars as Erich Raeder, opposite Rufus Sewell. Season 3 premieres this fall. 

 

Blakely grew up in the outskirts of Seattle, Washington, the youngest of four. After matriculating and graduating from the University of Washington he worked for a short time locally in storefront and fringe theatre.

 

In 2006, Blakely began his graduate acting training at the University of Washington's Professional Actor Training Program, where he trained with American theatre icon, Jon Jory.  After finishing in 2009, he moved to New York City where he landed a small part opposite Tilda Swinton in We Need to Talk About Kevin and then a role on stage in The Lion in Winter at Shakespeare Santa Cruz.  This brought him back to the west coast where he's worked steadily ever since. He's had multiple roles at Seattle Rep collaborating often with artistic director, Braden Abraham, most notably in Albee's Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? with Pamela Reed as Martha. Other theatre credits include work at ACT Theatre, South Coast Rep, A Noise Within and starred in the world premiere of How To Write A New Book For the Bible at Berkeley Rep written by Steinberg Award winning playwright Bill Cain.  Blakely received a Bay Area Theatre Critics' Circle Awards nomination for his performance. 

Blakely currently resides in Los Angeles, California where he hikes and plays tennis as often as possible.
