Biography

Though actor Barney Welch may have gotten a late start to his onscreen career, supporting roles in such popular television series as Prison Break and Friday Night Lights seemed to indicate an actor whose ambition served as a comfortable counterbalance to his belated arrival. In 2008, the distinguished-looking player could be seen in the free-love-era CBS drama Swingtown. In addition to his television work, Welch also serves as the president of the Basin Film Society -- a Permian Basin-based collective of artists, actors, filmmakers, and fans who seek to encourage local filmmaking through community support. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
