Australian actor Vernon Wells first began his career in the 1970s appearing in television shows such as HOMICIDE, ALL THE RIVERS RUN, and MATLOCK POLICE, among others. In 1981, he got his so-called “big break” with MAD MAX: ROAD WARRIOR in which he played Wez, the leader of a post-apocalyptic biker gang and a primary antagonist throughout the film. His portrayal of the crazy villain gained such recognition that he was even asked to parody the role in the 1985 comedy WEIRD SCIENCE.
In 1985, Wells was cast as a lead villain in the Arnold Schwarzenegger film COMMANDO, wherein he plays an ex-soldier who kidnaps Schwarzenegger’s daughter Jenny for collateral to force the hero to make an assassination attempt.
Since then, Wells has continuously portrayed villains on both the big and small screens in a myriad of roles, notably INNERSPACE, POWER RANGERS: TIME FORCE, and DEATH HOUSE.
