Dan McColgan discovered his love of acting at age 19 while performing at
poetry readings in the coffee houses of San Francisco. His readings were
so dynamic and exciting that Dan soon had quite a large fan base
including Alan Ginsberg and Lawrence Ferlinghetti. His poetry was
eventually published in Longshot and a few other publications. Dan went
on to work with several respected theatre groups in San Francisco
receiving numerous positive reviews and accolades. After landing a role in the Oliver
Stone movie "The Doors", Dan decided to move to Los Angeles and pursue film and
television acting. He became a regular on "Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman" and acted in
many independent films. Dan returned to the theatre in the late 90's, taking
on five roles in one play. It was this experience that got him ready for
the movie SOUL ASSASSIN. Dan is also an experienced
martial artist and weapons expert and has been able to use this
knowledge to choreograph fight and combat scenes for both stage and screen.
