A life long artist and now a multi-award winning actor, John Wells began his film career in 2006 and has since been well acclaimed for his dynamic versatility, expressive features, and dramatic presence on screen.
Wells has delivered scene-stealing performances in a string of features like the genre-bending action/comedy, Overtime, and the satirical sci-fi romp, Piranha Sharks. He gained applause as founding father, Patrick Henry, in FOX’s historical docudrama series, Legends & Lies: The Patriots, and was called a “tour de force” in reviews for his performance in the depression-era drama, The Old Winter. John is currently starring as Mike Swain, the principal character in the faith-based, post-apocalyptic survival television series, The Dark.
In 2015, Wells was honored with the Médaille d’Or for Outstanding Achievements in Film by a Kentuckian.
