Famous for playing double-crossers and villains, Henry Czerny was born in Toronto, Canada in 1959. He was still a small child when he first began showing an interest in acting, appearing in school plays, as well as in several musicals during his teens. After attending York University, Czerny enrolled at National Theatre School of Canada, where he focused on bettering himself for an already in-progress career acting on stage. After graduating and spending several years in the Canadian theater scene however, Czerny was eventually persuaded to expand into television, making his screen debut on a 1986 episode of the Canadian kids series "The Edison Twins" (CBC, 1982-86). His big break would come in 1992, when he was cast as an abusive priest in the Canadian film "The Boys of St. Vincent" (1992), a drama about the true story of several boys who were abused by the clergy running a Catholic orphanage. The role proved Czerny's range, and he was next seen playing the blustering CIA director in the political thriller "Clear and Present Danger" (1994). He would go on to co-star in "Mission: Impossible" (1996), uttering the franchise's famous catchphrase "This mission, if you choose to accept it " and later appearing in the popular 1999 remake of "The Pink Panther" (1999). Czerny earned a particularly devoted cult following for his portrayal of Conrad Grayson on the series "Revenge" (ABC, 2011-15), which he stuck with from 2011 to 2015. In 2018, he joined Amy Adams and Patricia Clarkson on the miniseries "Sharp Objects" (HBO, 2018-), based on the debut novel by thriller writer Gillian Flynn.
