BIOGRAPHY:

Michael Chiklis was educated at Boston University's School for the Arts, majoring in acting, before moving to New York City. Chiklis has numerous theater credits including the roles of Stanley in A Streetcar Named Desire and Touchstone in Shakespeare's As You Like It.


TRIVIA:
  • He is 3/4 Greek and 1/4 Irish and English.
  • Has a brother called Peter.
  • After his show _"Daddio" (2000)_ (qv) went off the air, his wife suggested that Chiklis slim his weight down and change his self image with a different look and a totally different acting part, even if they have to create one themselves for him. He then shaved his head, lost more than 40 pounds, worked out vigorously and the two of them started to write a "rogue cop" movie role for him. Chiklis eventually read _"The Shield" (2002)_ (qv)'s pilot script (originally called "Rampart"), which was similar to his "rogue cop" movie script, and aggressively pursued the part of Vic Mackey until he got it. When he read for the the part, he channeled "anger" by being furious at the prospect of not getting it.
  • He is very proud of his Greek heritage and encourages his daughters to learn about Greece.
  • His father owns a beauty salon.
  • He loves classic rock.
  • Shares a birthday with baseball legend, Ted Williams
  • His worst job was "unloading 18 wheel trucks for 12 hours a day".
