  Summary  

Kaj-Erik Eriksen is a Canadian actor. He is best known for his roles as Danny Farrell in the television series The 4400, Jeremy Peters in the television series Boston Public, and as the son of the main character in the 1990s show The Commish.

  Biography  

 career
Eriksen began his acting career in Vancouver, British Columbia at the age of six. After only a few jobs as an extra and a couple of small speaking roles, he got his first big break when he landed a part in the independent film Quarantine. The shoot was very low budget and the cast and crew had to climb through broken windows to get to the set that was inside an abandoned, rat-infested warehouse. Kaj loved it and was hooked on acting right away.

Shortly after Quarantine, Kaj did his first of two guest stars on the TV show MacGyver, which was his favorite show as a child.

In 1991, after working on a number of movies, and guest starring on various television series, Kaj booked the role of David Scali, the son of Michael Chiklis' character on the long-running ABC drama The Commish. The well-respected show catapulted Eriksen into the mainstream American TV world, earning him nominations for a Hollywood Reporter Youth Star Award, a Youth in Film Award, and two YTV Achievement awards.

During The Commish's five year run, Eriksen worked on numerous other projects including the re-make of the classic film Captains Courageous, and popular TV shows Goosebumps and Are You Afraid of the Dark?.

At age 17 when The Commish ended, Eriksen moved to Los Angeles and continued his career and schooling there, making guest appearances on television shows such as Home Improvement and Walker, Texas Ranger.

Kaj returned to Vancouver in 1999 to shoot two seasons of Beggars and Choosers, a short-lived series that received critical praise as well as a cult following.

In 2001 after returning to Los Angeles, Kaj landed the role of Jeremy Peters on David E. Kelley's Boston Public. What was supposed to be a four episode arc turned into a recurring role that lasted 2 seasons. It also ended up being one of Eriksen's most recognizable roles to date.

Eriksen returned to Vancouver once again in 2004 to play Danny Farrell on the hit USA Network television series The 4400, one of his favorite projects to work on to date due the close "family atmosphere" of the cast and crew.

During Eriksen's 25 years in the business, he has guest starred on many popular TV shows including Tru Calling, Stephen King's Dead Zone, Star Trek: Enterprise, NCIS, Criminal Minds and The Closer.

In 2010 he starred alongside Richard Thomas in the Hallmark movie Time After Time.

 personal life
Eriksen became an American citizen in 2001. In his spare time, he studies karate and enjoys photography. He also enjoys music, and is a fan of Dave Matthews Band.
