Actor David Boreanaz, 43, says life was idyllic in Buffalo, N.Y., before moving to Philadelphia when he was 8, where his father, Dave Roberts, was a television weatherman.

While attending Malvern Prep School in Pennsylvania, Boreanaz was bullied for about a year, until he began to grow into his full stature. Being on the football team also helped curb those bullies, and he went on to become a sports enthusiast and to pursue his bigger dreams of becoming an actor.

Now starring as Special Agent Seeley Booth opposite Emily Deschanel in Fox's crime drama hit "Bones," Boreanaz first came into the public eye as a biker boyfriend of Kelly Bundy on "Married ... With Children." After that, he was cast in "Buffy the Vampire Slayer," playing the mysterious Angel. That lasted for two years before Boreanaz got his own spinoff show as Angel.

Boreanaz shares life with his actress/model wife, Jaime Bergman, whom he wed in 2001; and 7-year-old son, Jaden Rayne; along with two four-legged friends, a white Lab, Buddha, and Rocky the Chihuahua.

“We moved from Buffalo to Philadelphia when I was 8 years old, so going from a school and tight-knit community, and a community of openness, to going to a school in Philadelphia, that was a little bit more bruised up -- and I was the new kid on the block -- I was razzed. It started as that and compounded into getting pushed around a lot. The older I got, the bigger I got, so that changed pretty quickly (laughs).

Moving from a school in Philadelphia and being pushed around a bit, and getting my bearings, learning that, hey, this is the real world. In some ways you get beat up a little bit. I guess I got my "mojo" put on big time there, stopped getting pushed around, so it was kind of like the mean streets of Philadelphia versus the blue-collar, small-time feel of where I came from. Growing up in Buffalo and visiting my grandparents often in Binghamton, N.Y., I had a very blue-collar, working-class upbringing.”
