Roché has an impressive acting resume, having performed in several productions dating back to the 1980s. He is best known for portraying Kurt Mendel on “Odyssey 5” (2002), Thomas Jerome Newton on “Fringe” (2008), Michel Marivaux on “The Young Pope” (2016), Balthazar on “Supernatural” (2005), and Mikael on both “The Vampire Diaries” (2009) and “The Originals” (2013).

“I’ve been on every TV show since the Cretaceous [Period],” Roché said during his panel at FanX.
