BIOGRAPHY:

Balfour was born in Los Angeles, California, the son of Sharon (née Salter), who works as a marriage and family counselor, and David Balfour, a chiropractor. He has a younger sister, Tori. His family is Jewish.

Eric Balfour's career in entertainment began at the age of fifteen when a talent scout cast him as a series regular on the hit dancing and singing show Kids Incorporated. He has since established himself as a creative force for both the television and film communities, playing a range of eclectic characters.

Balfour is currently in production on the independent Sci fi thriller, Skyline. And he was most recently seen in films that include: Dimension's Hell Ride, and Mandate Film's The Horsemen opposite 'Dennis Quaid', and Lionsgate Film's The Spirit alongside 'Eva Mendes'. In addition to his film career, Balfour was seen in the Emmy and Golden Globe-winning Fox TV drama 24, reprising his season one role as Milo, the smart and eccentric resident computer expert at the CTU.

He has also appeared in an extensive list of television and big screen appearances throughout his career. Of late Balfour has taken on the roles of writer, director and producer for his production company OFF THE GRID ENTERTAINMENT. Balfour, like his "Haven castmates", resides in Los Angeles.

  • Played Satan in a car commercial in 2002. He punished a man by forcing him to drive a minivan.
