Eric Pope has been playing a villain most of his life, but not in the way most would think… he doesn’t rob banks and beat people up. He is 6’7″ with a signature dark look equally matched with a rather impressive war cry – heard over a mile away (this has been proven). Eric was a cosplay kid back in the day, but everything changed when he became the leader of the Seattle Zombie Walk – a flash mob that gathers several times a year to surprise an area of Seattle with hundreds of zombies. In 2011, the Red White and Dead party broke the world record with 4,500 zombies. As a character actor, this opened many doors for Eric from movies, TV, and a variety of other appearances including the popular act, “Wotan the Fairysmasher.” Wotan can be seen on both the East and West Coast at various Renaissance Fairs and music festivals – entertaining children of all ages by being the giant villain to blow kisses at and run away from. When not smashing faeries or on a random adventure, Eric is a software engineer in Seattle by week and a river rafting guide by weekend.
