Biography

Irish actor Brian O'Byrne divided his time more or less equally between theater and film. On stage, O'Byrne tackled lead and supporting roles in such on and off-Broadway productions as Frozen (2004, as a serial killer -- a performance that netted him a Tony), Doubt (2005), and Shining City (2006). Cinematically, he more or less adhered to supporting roles, in such outings as Bandits (2001), Million Dollar Baby (2004), Bug (2006), and Before the Devil Knows You're Dead (2007). In the years to come, O'Byrne would also find success on the small screen, starring in series like FlashForward, Prime Suspect, and the acclaimed mini-series Mildred Pierce. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
