Born on October 2, in New Zealand, Patrick Kake would have no idea what positive repercussions would ensue from a chance entry into a modeling competition. From this humble point in 1993, Patrick began a career in modeling in the annual New Zealand fashion award shows. While at one of these events, a casting director spotted the 6'2", muscled model and selected him to be a double for Kevin Sorbo in the Hercules television series. Patrick himself admits this was generally the show that taught him a great deal about acting and also started his love for it. He started out standing in during the times, Kevin was off camera (due to a restriction by producers so that Kevin would not work himself ill as he had done in prior shoots). From 1995-1999, Patrick worked on Hercules and in 2000 he began appearing on the science fiction series Cleopatra 2525 (2000-2001) (TV). 2005 would be a stand-out year as he won the role of the Centaur general Oreius in The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe (2005). He has also appeared in the vampire horror/adventure flick 30 Days of Night (2007).
