ZiCon welcomes Kerrigan Mahan

Kerrigan Mahan is three generations Hollywood. As an actor, he’s appeared in numerous television shows, commercials, and movies. He produced and directed the critically acclaimed one-man show, “Matty, an Evening with Christy Mathewson,” with well received runs at The Two Roads Theater in Studio City and The Lambs, off-Broadway.

Mahan recently directed the travel show, “California Highway 1 Discovery Route On the Road with Jo,” which can be viewed on You Tube. 

Mahan has two feature length screenplays in development, an original coming-of-age racing drama, “Chasing Valentino,” and a Depression era family film, “Screenland,” adapted from the book, The Boy Who Looked Like Shirley Temple, by his late father, Bill Mahan. He has also created and written an original series, entitled “The Bangors,” with Adam West set to star, the original Batman and currently, Mayor West on “The Family Guy.”

Mahan’s on-camera career includes dozens of television shows and movies, most recently playing the EVANGELIST in the film, “Angels in Stardust,” starring Alicia Silverstone, Billy Burke and AJ Michalka.

As a voice over performer, Mahan has been heard on hundreds of radio and television commercials and has narrated numerous television shows, industrials, and documentaries. He has voiced dozens of promos and trailers, and had a lucrative career in ADR, looping over a thousand TV shows and movies. He’s been the Mafioso on the phone, the voice replacement for the hardened cop, the menacing heavy breather, and the nut case in the asylum. He’s been strangled, chased, trampled, slugged, stabbed, shot, and set on fire... and that’s all before lunch.

In live action, his most famous and sustaining role to date was the ever popular and fearsome, original evil space alien, GOLDAR, of the hugely-famed, “Mighty Morphin Power Rangers” series, and “Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie.” He also voiced the dark and tortured anti-hero, MAGNA DEFENDER, in “Power Rangers, Lost Galaxy.” He also voiced JEB, the talking dog on the series, “VR Troopers.”

He was the GREMLIN in the TV series “Seven Days,” the FUNWORLD PATROLMAN and SECURITY GUARD in the movie, “Bebe’s Kids,” the desperate and dying, TROY LARSON in “Supernova” and the GAY PENGUIN in Dr. Doolittle. He was the gruff, no nonsense voice of the black Ford 150 pick-up truck, ATTACK BEAST on the television series, “Team Knight Rider,” and the out-spoken political radio shock jock, P.J. HAWKS, in “The District.”

In the animation world, Mahan recurred as the calculating, evil powerhouse, EDWIN ALVA, on the series, “Static Shock,” and played multiple characters on the home video release, “Ultimate Avengers.” He has guest starred on “Family Guy,” “Scooby Doo,” “Batman Beyond,” “Fantastic 4,” “Alvin and the Chipmunks,” “As Told By Ginger,” “I Am Weasel,” “The Angry Beavers,” “Dilbert,” and “God, the Devil and Bob.”

Mahan was one of the pioneers with the resurgence of anime in the mid-80s, voicing the incorrigible flirt, PRIVATE SEAN PHILLIPS, in the series, “Robotech,” the ever intimidating, REI GINSEI, in “Vampire Hunter D,” the scrubbed and wholesome do-gooder, KIMBALL KINNISON, in “The Lensman,” the relaxed and self-assured, RINGO, in ”Technoman,” the frightfully menacing PABLO in “The Professional,” and the coolest of cool, BUNTA, in the series, “Initial D” in stores on DVD.

Mahan currently lives in Morro Bay, California with his wife, Melanie, their tuxedo cat, Presley, their wild, zany-smart blond wolf dog, Keogh, and that crazier than crazy character Great Dane, Mia. When not walking these wildebeests, he can be found spending most of his time these days, writing, directing and doing VO jobs out of his home studio.
