He played Pastor Tom Hale in the series “Resurrection,” and can be seen opposite Ewan McGregor in the 2016 film "American Pastoral." Hildreth can also be spotted in “Dragon Ball Z,” “Supernatural,” “The Tudors,” “Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End,” and the list rolls on. Out of Vancouver, British Columbia, the talented actor has a passion for storytelling and education. Stay tuned for his role in a new series for Netflix!

Colleen Bement: What can you share about playing Pastor Tom Hale in the hit series "Resurrection"?

Mark Hildreth: Playing Tom was one of the best experiences I've ever had as an actor.

To me, "Resurrection" was about delving deep into questions of faith, belief and what makes us human. Any time you get to play a role in a project that gets into that type of exploration you're doing what was meant to be done when acting and storytelling was created.

Watch out for role in new Netflix series

CB: What projects in your future are you allowed to talk about?

MH: Not many I can share about openly, but I'm working on a new series for Netflix, and I'll be appearing in a play this summer near NYC!

Had a great experience on the set of 'Supernatural'

CB: I remember you in your role as Adam Benson from "Supernatural's season four episode "Sex and Violence." My readers would just love to hear about your experience on the set.

MH: We had one very long, very intense day shooting “Supernatural” in my amazing hometown of Vancouver Canada. I love intense roles like that, and since I knew a few people on the “Supernatural” set already it felt pretty comfortable. But I have to say, Jensen and Jared (who I knew a little already) are both consummate pros and are really gracious guys both.

It was a very positive experience working with them.

CB: You played Agent Dolan in the 2016 film "American Pastoral." What was that experience like?

MH: Ewan McGregor is one of the coolest guys I've ever worked with. “American Pastoral” was a great experience from start to finish. I hope just the first in a long list of directorial endeavors for Ewan, who bit off a heck of a challenge with this as his first picture as a director.

He is wonderful with cast and crew alike and really has his feet on the ground.

CB: Do you have any social causes that are close to your heart?

MH: My father was a teacher for 30 years and I believe that education is the highest moral imperative for humanity to grow and survive. Our educational systems have a long way to go, but civilization is the product of education so that's the cause I support the most.
