Nephilim Casts International Star As Father Markus

Hunky, David Charvet, who rose to international fame on the hit shows "Baywatch" and "Melrose Place," has joined the cast of Nephilim in the leading role of Father Markus.

Charvet launched his acting career on the world's most watched show of its time, "Baywatch," in which he developed a strong international following playing lifeguard 'Matt Brody' for three seasons. He continued to expand his fan base with his role of 'Craig Field' for two seasons on "Melrose Place." He also starred in NBC's highly-rated telefilm "Seduced and Betrayed" and the ABC movies-of-the week "Derby" and "Angel Flight Down." He also starred in the independent feature "Meet Prince Charming," with Drea de Matteo.

As a Universal Music recording artist, Charvet spent five years in Europe, where he released three successful pop rock albums, as part of his five album deal with Universal Music Group France. He has sold over 2.5 million albums to date, with three of his singles ("Leap of Faith," "Should I Leave" and "The Tears in My Eyes") charting in the Top 10.

Charvet has traveled extensively throughout Europe and Asia, performing for packed arenas, writing music and experiencing new cultures. He has collaborated with top songwriters such as Ty Lacy (who wrote Leanne Rimes' single "I Need You"), and he has also worked with Robbie Williams' producer Steve Power. Charvet has recorded a duet with Bryan Adams, and he also worked on a duet with Seal.

Although his music career has taken center stage in recent years, Charvet has always sought new creative challenges. He has now returned to the United States where he is happy to be back to his first love of acting. "Music has helped me to evolve tremendously as an artist and has enriched me personally in so many ways," he offers. "I left America a boy and have come back a man."
