    Default Bigfoot Thunk/Discussion/Appreciation

    I watched tonight's series premiere, and loved it! I wasn't sure going into this, but I was very pleased with what I saw. But a question - does anyone know who was under the bigfoot makeup? I don't know what else to call him...but something about him reminded me of Chris Heyerdahl (John Druitt...and Todd, of course). Was it Chris, or someone else?

    Whoever he is, I'm liking the character...and no, not in 'that' way.

    I believe its someone new.

    But it is a fact that in the Webisodes they borrowed the wraith voice of "Todd"
    For bigfoot.

    Ah, okay. Maybe it was the voice that made me think of Chris, then. Thanks!

    Default who plays bigfoot?

    The character looks familiar - like the Bigfoot (Sasquatch) they have on the Jack Links commercials. I wonder if it's the same guy.

    Christopher Heyerdahl, who also plays John Druitt. You may also know him as Todd the Wraith, or Hollin(sp?) from Stargate Atlantis.

    It was Chris. I don't remember who said it in an interview, Damian Kindler or Sam Egan or someone else.

    Thanks - I saw it said in the other thread, too. I thought his hands looked like Chris' - I'm a hand person, and Chris has lovely long fingers, so I notice stuff like that, and Bigfoot had long, slender fingers, too.

    ...also starring Bigfoot as Himself...

    But if it is CH and he's playing two characters and is in the main credits, which character is a regular and which would be recurring? I doubt he could juggle two main characters for each episode, especially when one invovles quite extensive makeup.

    Had...Dan Payne's...FACE? LOLOLOL! I betcha Dan would disagree with that statement...

    I've tried finding out on-line. I have found a couple places that say Chris plays Bigfoot, but no way to confirm it, or if it's just speculation.

    From an interview with Sam Egan

    Michael: I have noticed in press releases that Christopher Heyerdahl's name wasn't mentioned. Is he still going to be involved with the series?

    Sam Egan: Oh, absolutely. I don't know why that was an error of omission but Chris we consider to be an absolutely integral part of Sanctuary. He is the key villain in the role of John Druitt who appears in Episodes One and Two and is definitely, I think I can say without revealing too much, going to be coming back in that role. Now, what you may or may not know is that Chris is also Bigfoot. That's a little surprise and nugget for the fans. So underneath the prosthetics and all that make-up for the character of Bigfoot there is the very same actor who plays our arch villain and the former fiancée of Dr. Helen Magnus.

    Thanks so much! I had asked elsewhere, and this is the first solid proof! I know some thought it was Chris because of the voice, but two things made me suspect it was him - the way he kinda shrugged when Will refused the tea (reminded me of something Todd does), and his hands (Chris' hands are very sexy ).

    While Druitt will be the recurring bad guy, he won't even be in half of the episodes. Also, scenes are shot on different days. If they were ever to write a scene with both Druitt and Big Foot in it, it would be in such a way that they could easily pull it off with a stand it.

    Dan Payne did play the bigfoot role in the Webisodes, I help run his fan club and know for a fact he had several roles in them. As for the TV series, I just sent him an email to find out the truth. I know there were changes from webisodes to TV so we'll see.

    Later, Kim

    Do you have any actual proof, because jasminaGo has provided the best so far.
