Born in New Zealand, Patrick Kake would have no idea what positive repercussions would ensue from a chance entry into a modeling competition. From this humble point in 1993, Patrick began a career in modeling in the annual New Zealand fashion award shows. While at one of these events, a casting director spotted the muscled model and selected him to be a double for Kevin Sorbo in the Hercules television series. Patrick himself admits this was generally the show that taught him a great deal about acting, and also started his love for it.
He started out standing in during the times when Kevin was off camera (due to a restriction by producers, so that Kevin would not work himself ill, as he had done in prior shoots). From 1995-1999, Patrick worked on Hercules, and in 2000 he began appearing on the science fiction series Cleopatra 2525 (2000-2001) (TV).
2005 would be a stand-out year, as he won the role of the Centaur, General Oreius, in LWW.
He has also appeared in the vampire horror/adventure flick 30 Days of Night (2007).
He is 6 feet 2 inches (1.88 m) tall.
