A native of the Pacific Northwest, Wayne Bastrup has spent the past ten
years appearing in an extensive variety of film and television productions.
In 2009 he booked a role on TNT’s Leverage, opposite Academy award-
winning actor Timothy Hutton. Soon after, Wayne left the Pacific Northwest
and headed for Hollywood where he began training at the prestigious Actors
Workshop with RJ Adams and Rob Adams, embracing their ‘Meissner’ approach.
Over the last few years, he has successfully appeared, and starred, in a wide
range of award-winning films and TV shows, including: Terminator: Genysis,
L.A.'s Finest, Are You Sleeping, Leverage, Awake, Whitney, CSI: NY, Radio
America, and The Mentalist. He can also be seen in the Bill Pohlad (12 Years A
Slave) directed feature “Love and Mercy” as well as Sully, directed by Clint
Eastwood, a biographical drama based on the autobiography Highest Duty by
Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger.
Wayne is represented by Scott Vandiver of Spotlight Management.
When not filming or traveling, Wayne spends time with his family, hiking the
Hollywood Hills with their dog Maple, a Chihuahua-Beagle mix rescued from an
animal shelter in Los Angeles. Wayne is an advocate for animal rights and
supports The Humane Society of the United States as well as the Michael J.
Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research.
