As the 20th century drew to a close, he landed a minor role in the American drama “Someone She Knows,” captivating audiences with his distinguished looks and engaging smile. This debut led to his appearance on the iconic series “Baywatch.”

In 2002, Dohring ventured into the world of advertising, featuring in commercials for big brands like Pepsi, Honda, and Domino’s Pizza. Two years later, his journey took a significant turn when he was cast in “Veronica Mars.” Initially eyed for the role of Duncan, script revisions instead positioned Teddy Dunn in that role, with Dohring stepping into the shoes of Logan. He shared the screen with notable talents such as Kristen Bell, Kyle Gallner, Amanda Seyfried, Charisma Carpenter, and Alona Tal.

Dohring’s portrayal of a centuries-old vampire in “Moonlight” showcased his ability to embody a character living in the lap of luxury, devoid of ethical dilemmas and surrounded by a bevy of beauties catering to his every need.

In 2008, it was announced that Dohring would join the comedic endeavor “Washingtonienne” as Spencer, working alongside Rachel Taylor, Jesse Williams, and Amanda Walsh. By 2010, he revealed plans to lend his voice to a leading character in a well-known video game, expanding his artistic repertoire.

That same year, Dohring took on a role in “Searching for Sonny,” a project helmed by Andrew from Disney, noted for its innovative use of a semi-professional Canon camera for filming. The narrative follows three friends caught up in a criminal investigation during a reunion. 2011 saw Dohring in the dramatic series “Ringer,” opposite Sarah Michelle Gellar, exploring the complex dynamics between twin sisters entangled in a web of deceit following a witnessed murder and a subsequent suicide.

In 2012, he joined “Supernatural” as Chronos, the god of time, and in 2013, made a brief appearance in “The Tomorrow People,” a story about youths with extraordinary abilities, reimagining a classic British series.

By 2017, Dohring was captivating audiences in “iZombie” as Chase Graves, alongside Rose McIver, David Anders, and Aly Michalka. The series, following a young woman’s transformation into a zombie, provided a platform for Dohring to deeply explore and express his character’s trials and tribulations, garnering acclaim from fans and critics alike within the American entertainment sphere.
