Early life and career
Ogg was born in Calgary, Alberta and began his acting career in a film for the National Film Board of Canada, before working in various theater productions. He was focused on pursuing a career in sports, but an injury prevented him from doing so. After moving to New York City, he began acting in television shows such as Law & Order and Third Watch, in addition to some theater work and voice acting. After taking a break from acting to build a house, he was hired by Rockstar Games as the voice and motion capture artist for Trevor Philips in their 2013 video game Grand Theft Auto V. His character was critically acclaimed and he received numerous award nominations as a result. On February 2014, he received an award on the 3rd Annual New York Videogame Critics Circle Awards for Best Overall Acting in a Game. Ogg later reprised his role in the 2016 YouTube short film GTA VR. In The Walking Dead season 6 finale, he made his debut as Simon, who is a member of the Saviors, the main antagonists in season 7, in which he became a recurring character. Ogg also had a role in the HBO series Westworld as Rebus.
