Hayden Walker (born 14 March, 1962) was raised in Pacific Palisades, California. Hayden Walker won the American International Karate competition in 1988 and moved with his family to Los Angeles the following year. Walker began training in martial arts when he was 11 years old and has since received a 5th degree black belt in Shotokan Karate and a 1st degree black belt in Judo. He also carries a number of other disciplines including studying Kung Fu at the USA Shaolin Temple and Ninjutsu at the “Dux Ryu” school in Los Angeles, established by renowned martial artist Frank Dux. During his time in Los Angeles, Walker enjoyed training with his friend and mentor Chris Ellis who holds a 6th degree black belt in Judo.
Hayden began studying acting at Tony Barr’s Film Actors Workshop and made his acting debut in the leading role in ‘International Ninja II: The Next War’ (1990) and also appeared in two of its sequels. Walker also starred in ‘Omen of War’ (1995), where he played Jayden Hunter, a slave who escaped a race of evil cyborgs who kidnapped humans from Earth’s future to use as slaves, and took dinosaurs from the past to use as trackers. The movie was lampooned in an episode of Mystery Science Theater 3000.
Hayden Walker’s marriage, (1990) to Victoria Sand, ended in 1992 and they had no children. Dean Dalton, his “Falcon’s Creed” (1991) colleague, introduced Hayden to Christine Shanbrooke and they were engaged a year later. Christine then co-stared on the hit TV series “Private War” (1993) a show in which Hayden played Eric Branson an assassination/martial arts expert suffering from amnesia who begins working as a police officer. He tries to solve the mystery of his condition while being constantly besieged by figures from his past. The two continued working together in the TV series until the middle of season four, when Christine was cut out because of Hayden’s interest in Sharon Wright. Christine and Hayden seperated and Christine was reportedly “very disappointed” about the situation. A lawsuit was filed and later dropped against the studio. The studio abruptly cancelled the show in 1997 and soon after the hit series left television, Hayden became notable as secluded in his lifestyle. Hayden Walker is currently unmarried and lives in the city of San Francisco.
…Unknown to the public is the fact that tonight, Hayden Walker, is a vampire. Sired by Keegan Whitling in Los Angeles, Hayden had began his new immortal life. Filming and sunlight, was no longer an option and instead Hayden began spending much of his time building on his friendship with Keegan. Over time the two became close. Keegan realized Hayden’s potential power and acted as a mentor, showing him the ways of vampire society and helping him hone his exceptional gift in swaying the emotions and thoughts of others. Hayden quickly fit into the ranks of the Daeva and began focusing on building a reputation within the vampire society. Since the unfortunate final death of Keegan, Hayden has been purposefully developing his potent talents and working to establish a powerful presence within the underworld of San Francisco.
