Canadian star Kaj-Erik Eriksen adds another franchise to his impressive list in the Soska Sisters Slasher Sequel “See No Evil 2”

The Promotion People - Kaj - Erik EriksonCanadian actor Kaj-Erik Eriksen has appeared in some of the most beloved franchises of all time – including “MacGyver,” “NCIS” and “Star Trek.” The Vancouver native is at it again with a starring role in the Lionsgate and WWE Studios film “See No Evil 2,” the sequel to the surprise slasher hit featuring wrestler Kane.

The movie premieres Friday, October 17, 2014 on Digital HD and Video on Demand, followed by a DVD and Blue-Ray release later in the month. In line with the horror theme, filming took place in an abandoned mental institution.

Directed by filmmaking twins Jen and Sylvia Soska (a.k.a. the Soska Sisters), the second installment sees madman Jacob Goodnight (played by Kane) rise from the dead and wreak havoc among a group of friends at the morgue. Eriksen plays Seth, an earnest guy who works at the morgue alongside Amy (Danielle Harris) and happens to be at the wrong place at the wrong time.

“For me it was exciting,” Eriksen told Rotten Tomatoes at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con. “It’s a lot of running and yelling and getting chased and blood and splattering – it was fun. I hadn’t done a horror movie in a long time, so it was cool to jump back in.”

“See No Evil 2” marks Since then the Canadian actor has made numerous appearances on the small screen, including as a series regular in the USA Network, Emmy-nominated show “The 4400.”

About Kaj-Erik Eriksen
Kaj-Erik Eriksen has been acting for more than 29 years, which is impressive considering he’s only 35. Born and raised in Vancouver, B.C., Eriksen began his acting career at the tender age of six. After just a handful of extra and small speaking roles, the young actor landed a part in the independent feature “Quarantine.”

Around that same time, Eriksen booked a guest-starring role in “MacGyver,” one of the most popular shows at the time. It also happened to be Eriksen’s favorite series as a child and one that he would return to a few years later for another guest stint.

In 1991, after scoring a number of movies and guest roles on TV, the Canadian talent landed the part of David Scali, the son of Michael Chiklis’ character on the hit ABC drama “The Commish.” The show introduced Eriksen to millions of American fans and earned him the attention of critics, who gave him nods for a Youth in Film Award, a Hollywood Reporter Youth Star Award, and two YTV Achievement awards.

Eriksen worked on a number of other projects during “The Commish’s” five-year run, including a remake of the classic film “Captains Courageous” and popular kids TV shows such as “Goosebumps” and “Are You Afraid of the Dark?”

He moved to Los Angeles at the age of 17, where he continued to grow as an actor with guest roles in “Home Improvement” and “Walker Texas Ranger.” In 1999, the Vancouver native returned home to shoot two seasons of Showtime’s “Beggars and Choosers,” a short-lived series that garnered critical praise and a devoted cult following.

Upon coming back to L.A. in 2001, Eriksen landed one of his most important roles to date: the part of Jeremy Peters on David E. Kelley’s “Boston Public.” What was originally supposed to be a mere four-episode arc evolved into a recurring role over the span of two seasons. Eriksen also appeared in the action thriller “88 Minutes” starring Oscar-winner Al Pacino.

Since then, the Canadian star has been featured in ” Stephen King’s “Dead Zone,” “Criminal Minds,” “The Closer,” among many others. Eriksen has also been seen starring alongside Richard Thomas in the Hallmark movie “Time After Time.” He will next be seen on Hallmark Channel’s “Signed, Sealed, Delivered: Christmas Special.”

In his spare time, Eriksen studies karate and enjoys photography. He also collects Victorinox Swiss army knives, an obsession that started because of his love of “MacGyver.”

Shelley quickly immerses herself into a new culture and religion by participating in 30 days of Ramadan, and travels the world while creating a poignant dialogue through her stand-up comedy. Throughout her trials and tribulations, she is called an “ignorant American” and finds herself in the Middle East getting interviewed by Al Jazeera.

Finally, she grows to respect a culture and religion that she may never completely understand, while dealing with the harsh realities of an inter-faith marriage.
