Dean Haglund


B: July 29, 1965 in Oak Bank, Manitoba

Dean Haglund began his acting career early with roles in school plays and community theater at the Prairie Theatre Exchange in Winnipeg. Later, when he was old enough to get into bars, he started doing stand-up comedy to help pay for acting classes. This led to a decision to move to Vancouver and study at Simon Fraser University, graduating with a Bachelor of Arts in multidisciplinary studies, including theatre, dance, and video production. He also joined the Vancouver comedy troupe, TheatreSports League, and began writing some of their routines. This eventually led to his cowriting the pilot for a situation comedy called Channel 92, which aired on UTV. About the same time, he began to get bit parts in television and one day he was hired for what was supposed to be a one-time bit part on a show called The X-Files. He played Richard “Ringo” Langly, one of the computer geeks known as The Lone Gunmen which was the name chosen for the spin-off series.
