  Summary  

Noah Bean is an American actor best known for his role as David Connor on the FX legal drama Damages and as Ryan Fletcher on the The CW action series Nikita.

  Biography  

 career
Prior to his role on Damages, Bean had a number of minor and less notable roles on the television series Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, Ed, Joan of Arcadia, Numb3rs, Nikita, and Crumbs, the films Williamstowne and Stay, and a number of commercials. He labels his signing on the role of David Connor on Damages, the fiancé of the protagonist, as being "lucky", praising the script of the show and also the fact that it is shot in New York, where he is currently living. He also says he was aware that his character dies in the first season and was disappointed but "thrilled" for the opportunity to have a full season. He also summarizes working with Glenn Close, Željko Ivanek and Ted Danson as "a dream come true". Bean returned for guest appearances in one episode each of the show's second and third seasons.

Bean has also been involved in theatre, Broadway and off-Broadway. His first role was in Philadelphia Here I Come!, a role which he was offered when the originally cast actor left the show four days before the opening. He co-runs a theatre company, Stage 13, with several other actors, directors and playwrights, including Dan Fogler, in New York, and although he prefers screen acting, he says, "I love the theater and would always go back to do a play if it was an exciting project." He appeared as a guest star in the episode "Ability" of the TV series Fringe. He is currently appearing in the CW show Nikita, as CIA Agent Ryan Fletcher.

 personal life
Bean was born in Boston, MA. As a child, Bean attended The Williams School in Connecticut. An only child, he describes himself as being so quiet and shy that his school would phone his parents asking whether anything was wrong at home: "I was deathly shy and basically scared of people in general." In high school his mother encouraged him to become involved in drama, which he says helped him open up, "I found when I had a script in my hand I could speak." He later attended Boston University's College of Fine Arts before he was offered his first theatre role by director Michael Ritchie.

Bean hails from Mystic, Connecticut, although he has lived and worked in Los Angeles and is currently living in New York. He is friends with actor Seth Gabel and director Jack Bender and also says he has come to be good friends with Damages co-actor and on-screen fiancé Rose Byrne.
