All About Titus Welliver
Welliver was born on March 12, 1962, in New Haven, Connecticut, into an artistic family, his father Neil being a famous landscape painter and his mother Norma a fashion illustrator. He grew up in both Philadelphia and New York City. He attributes much of his artistic growth to the milieu in which he grew up. Titus Welliver aspired to be a painter like his father but instead chose to pursue acting. In 1980, he relocated to New York to follow his vocation. He enrolled at HB Acting Studios while attending New York University and worked odd jobs to make ends meet. His hard work paid off when he was hired as a Navy Seal (1990). For the actor, this was only the beginning.
He soon started performing in films on a regular basis, in addition to his stage work. Among his early credits are The Doors (1991), JFK (1991), and Matlock (1991). (1986).
