Christopher Heyerdahl appears in New Moon and both Breaking Dawn movies as Marcus. His character is described as apathetic and appears constantly bored by any situation.

A seasoned actor in his generation, he is most known for his roles as Todd the Wraith and Halling in Stargate Atlantis and as a series regular as the powerful Druitt on the Syfy channel series Sanctuary.

In late 2011, he landed the role as a series regular on AMC's western Hell on Wheels.

In 2012, Heyerdahl was cast in the HBO series, True Blood. He plays Dieter Braun, an ancient, powerful vampire who plays a large part in the intelligence of the Authority.
