Colin Cunningham is an American television and film actor, best known for his role in the TNT drama Falling Skies.

Falling SkiesEdit

In Falling Skies, he portrays John Pope, the leader of a band of marauders, who introduces himself to the 2nd Mass by taking a group of hostages and offering to exchange their freedom for weapons. For reasons known only to him, this smart, resourceful and charismatic ex-con takes great pleasure in killing Skitters, even hunting them like wild game. A shameless opportunist, Pope considers the invasion the best thing that ever happened to him. Despite all his questionable motives, Pope remains a powerful member of the 2nd Mass.


Colin was born on the 20th August, 1966 in Los Angeles.

Colin has had a recurring role on Stargate SG-1 as USAF Major Paul Davis, and has a major role in the award-winning Canadian series Da Vinci's Inquest. He appeared as Steven Lefkowitz in the short-lived jPod and in several episodes of The L Word. He starred as an anti-clone activist named Tripp in the 2000 thriller The 6th Day, and as the character McCabe in the 2005 film Elektra.

Colin wrote, directed, and starred in a short film titled Centigrade, a contemporary thriller, and it was the winner of the 2007 Kick Start Award.


  • Colin Cunningham came to his audition for John Pope, dressed in character as the way he saw Pope, as a lot of actors out there bore the living snot out of him. "I show up to these auditions and I see the same guys, with the same hair, wearing the same suit, spitting out the same dialogue in the same way."
