Screen Shot 2014-01-23 at 12.59.50 PMThe three-part mini series “Klondike” ended yesterday (if you missed it, check out some clips here). The Discovery Channel’s first attempt at a scripted show starred Richard Madden, Sam Shephard, Abbie Cornish and Tim Roth, plus a locally known face: Johnny Simmons.

The 2005 W.T. White High School alumnus has had a pretty successful acting career, about which we’ve written here before. In his latest role on the show about the Klondike Gold Rush, he plays then-aspiring writer Jack London.

Simmons also has appeared in the movies, “The Perks of Being a Wallflower” and “Scott Pilgrim vs. the World.
