Gabriel Byrne

Handsome, with a deep, lugubrious voice, Gabriel Byrne first made an impression as Uther Pendragon in John Boorman’s mystical 'Excalibur' (1981). He impressed as a journalist caught up in a government espionage scandal in 'Defence of the Realm' (1986) before taking on a series of significant roles in 'Gothic' (1986), 'Julia and Julia' (1987), 'Siesta' (1987) and 'A Soldier’s Tale' (1989). His conniving go-between in the Coens' 'Miller’s Crossing' (1990) remains one of his finest performances. He may or may not be Keyser Söze in 'The Usual Suspects' (1995) and ended the 1990s dabbling in blockbusters like 'Enemy of the State' (1998) and 'End of Days' (1999). Another excellent performance in 'Jindabyne' (2006) showed that Byrne is at his best playing morally compromised characters, further evinced by his excellent turn as the therapist Dr. Paul Weston in the TV series 'In Treatment' (2008-10). More recently, he is moving as the bereaved father in Joachim Trier’s 'Louder Than Bombs'.
