In 2018 Troy Doherty can be seen starring in the fifth and final season of TNT's hit action-drama series "The Last Ship." Executive Produced by Michael Bay, the series follows the crew aboard the USS Nathan James, a lone, unaffected U.S. Navy Raleigh Burke-class guided missile destroyer that is alone at sea after a viral global pandemic wipes out over 80% of the world's population. The crew must find a cure, stop the virus, and save humanity. Doherty joins the cast as Clayton Swain, a cadet in the U.S. Naval Academy who became somewhat of a renegade after his parents died from the plague. As Tom Chandler's (Eric Dane) protégé, Swain is scrappy, charming and strong-willed, making his way through the ranks on the ship. Season five of "The Last Ship" will debut on September 9, 2018. On the film front, Doherty can next be seen in the independent feature "The Odd Essay," a mythological action comedy that is a modern retelling of The Odyssey, set on a college campus. Additional film credits for Doherty include: "Hachi: A Dog's Tale" opposite Richard Gere and Joan Allen, "Hickey" for Gravitas Ventures, indie flick "September Morning," which follows five students in a college dorm the night of 9/11, and the short film "Legacy," working alongside renowned cinematographer Claudio Miranda ("Life of Pi"). In television, Doherty has appeared on "Mike & Molly," "New Girl," "Criminal Minds," "Welcome to the Family," and "Scorpion." Born in New Jersey and raised the tri-state area, Doherty's theatre career began at just 11 years old, appearing as Artful Dodger opposite Michelle DeJean and Neal Bernari in the production of Lionel Bart's musical "Oliver!" at the ripe age of 12. He went on to land roles in the pre-Broadway world premiere of "A Christmas Story, The Musical," "The Secret Garden," "13 The Musical," "The Wedding Singer," and most recently as Beethoven in "Dog Sees God: Confession of a Teenage Blockhead," performed at the Santa Monica Playhouse. When Doherty isn't on set or performing on stage, you can find him writing, producing, and recording music. His debut EP "Citizen's Arrest" is currently available on iTunes, and features a mix of blues and pop-rock tunes with a twist of country. Doherty showcases his talents in guitar and piano on the album, as well as his impressive vocal range. Doherty is also a member of the Tempest Freerunning Academy, and he has been a traucer for the past four years and was honored to participate in the first Parkour/Freerunning Olympics 2013 in Southern California.
