Biography

Henry Ian Cusick trained at The Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama before joining the Glasgow Citizens Theatre where he played his first leading roles including Dorian Gray in The Picture of Dorian Gray with Rupert Everett, Hamlet in The Marovitz Hamlet with Helen Baxendale and Horner in The Country Wife.

His performances as Tasso in the Edinburgh International Festival production of Torquato Tasso, and Creon in the Citizens Theatre production of Oedipus, earned him a special commendation for the Ian Charleson Award 1995 for outstanding performance by a young actor in a classical theatre role.*

Other theatrical credits include roles as Stolzius in The Soldiers for the Edinburgh International Festival; Cassio in Othello, Demetrius in A Midsummer Nights Dream and Pompey in Anthony and Cleopatra with Alan Bates and Frances De La Tour for The Royal Shakespeare Company; Green in Richard II with Fiona Shaw, Arthur in Machine Wreckers and Dollabella in Anthony and Cleopatra with Alan Rickman and Helen Mirren for The Royal National Theatre; Nick in The LA Plays for the Almeida Theatre, London and Le Vicomte De Valmont in Les Liaisons Dangereuses for the Liverpool Playhouse. Other notable roles include McCann in The Birthday Party, Jeffrey in The Dying Gaul - Citizens Theatre, Louis Ironson in Angels in America for 7:84 Theatre co., title role in Don Juan for Theatre Babel.

TV and Film credits include playing Jesus in The Gospel of John, Gareth Heldman in Midsomer Murders, Gideon Mantell in Dinosaur Hunters, Dr. Talbot in 2000 Acres of Sky for 3 series; Matt in Carla; Miles (series regular) in the acclaimed BBC TV series The Book Group, Jason (series regular) in Casualty, Sgt. Michael Clark in Murder Rooms, and Dr. Peter Campbell in Lifetime TV's Original Movie, Perfect Romance. He recently completed work on two films: leading role of William for the independent film 9/Tenths directed by Robert Degus, followed by his work on the Craig Rosenberg-directed Half Light (lead role of Brian) with Demi Moore.

Born in Trujillo, Peru on April 17, 1969, the son of a Roman Catholic Peruvian mother and a Scottish father of Irish Catholic descent, Henry Ian was raised in Trinidad and Scotland. He now lives in England with his wife Annie and their three boys -- Elias, Lucas and Esau.

Thank you for posting that information. I knew he was Scottish! The accent had me melting. Wouldn't it have been cute had they gotten Billy for that role? ;) Although, I wouldn't want Billy or Elijah to do a guest role on the show, to be honest. Dom has worked so hard to get to this point. For so long people got him and Billy confused, and he finally has a project that gets him noticed, without Billy. Not to mention, having Elijah guest on there would only add fuel to the rumors of the two of them being 'together.' (Like that.) Not that being on the show together would mean that, it's just some people would assume it would. *G*

Ah...I have gotten so far off the point of this comment. :P Anyway, yes, thank you for the information. :) May I link to it?
