Pensacon is pleased to welcome Chad Rook, an actor who has appeared in Supernatural, Sanctuary, Bates Motel, Cult, and more and this fall, will play lead villain Clyde Mardon aka Weather Wizard in the CW’s highly anticipated new Arrow spinoff, The Flash.

Born in Lethbridge, Alberta, Chad Rook left the prairie life and headed to Vancouver straight out of High School to pursue his acting career and make a name for himself in the film scene. Shortly after the move however, he was selected as a “New Face” Model and immediately landed various modeling campaigns for such companies as Ibiza Hippie, Jean Paul Gaultier, Escada, Gucci and Swiss Army. Although the modeling world continued to offer multiple opportunities for Chad to venture down, acting was what he really wanted and soon relocated back to Western Canada.

Still new to Vancouver, Chad entered the “Faces West” Model and Talent Convention where he was given the chance to showcase his talents to major film studio heads and fashion designers alike. After 3 days of competition, Chad won awards for 7 of the 8 events including Dramatic Monologue, Comedic Sitcom, Commercial, Swimsuit, Runway, Cold Reading and Singing. Little did he know that this would lead him to his first lead role in the independent feature film Sleepover Nightmare just one month after the convention, but that was just the beginning.

Throughout the years, with ongoing training and continued dedication, Chad has now built himself up quite the resume including multiple Feature Film and Television roles, including a Guest Star role opposite Amanda Tapping on the SYFY series Sanctuary, multiple roles on the hit series Supernatural and recently a key role on the J.J. Abram’s series, Alcatraz.

Chad portrayed the lead villain, Clyde Mardon aka Weather Wizard in the CW’s highly anticipated Fall 2014 series The Flash opposite Grant Gustin’s Barry Allen. The Arrow spinoff is produced by Greg Berlanti, Andrew Kreisberg and Geoff Johns and based on the DC Comics character and the same universe as Arrow. Chad features heavily in the trailer for the series which has over 7.5 million views online.

Chad can also be seen in such features as The Wingman, Brotherhood, Killer Bash, Replay, Texas Road, and Pestilence. His TV appearances span across numerous series such as John Doe, The Selection, Sanctuary, Supernatural, Shattered, Alcatraz, Cult, and Bates Motel.

Alongside his ongoing acting career, Chad started his very own independent production company, Rook Entertainment back in 2009. Not a believer in “waiting” for things to happen, Chad wrote and directed the music video “Guilty” for international artist Chloe Morgan and put together his own online sketch comedy series FineLine in which he directed and also starred in.

Since then, Chad has teamed up with his fellow FineLine cast member, Nathan Witte in late 2011 and developed a new Production Company, CheckMate Films. Since the start of the new company, Chad has written, directed and produced the independent films She Walks at Night and The Doors. CheckMate Films are currently in pre-production of the Feature Film titled The Perfect Pickup, which Chad also wrote and will be directing and starring in. Along with numerous other independent Feature Film projects in the works such as Walk the Walk and A Day Down There and Hell Mary, and recently being cast as a Clyde Mardon on the CW Network TV Series The Flash, the future holds many open doors for Chad.
