Though a busy character actor for more than a decade, Yusuf Gatewood was perhaps best known as the witch Vincent Griffith on the popular "The Originals" (CW, 2013- ), a spinoff of the network's "The Vampire Diaries" (2009-17). Born Yusuf Keith Gatewood in Hillsborough, North Carolina on September 12, 1982, he graduated from Orange High School before making his feature film debut in Curtis Hanson's "Wonder Boys" (2000). Two years later, Greenwood earned his bachelor's degree from Carnegie Mellon's School of Drama in 2002, and found steady work on episodic series like "Law & Order: Criminal Intent" (NBC, 2001-2011) and "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation" (CBS, 1999-2015). His feature film debut came with a minor role in "The Interpreter," but television remained his primary showcase. In 2014, he was cast as Vincent Griffith, a powerful witch on the supernatural drama "The Originals." A recurring character in its first and second season, Greenwood's ability to play not only Griffith but the vampire Finn Mikaelson, whose spirit assumed control of Griffith's body in the show's second season, contributed to Greenwood joining the cast of "The Originals" as a fulltime series regular in 2015. When the series ran its course in 2018, Gatewood was cast as a former FBI agent assisting a clairvoyant (Harriet Dyer) in solving criminal cases on "In Between Lives" (2018), a drama pilot for NBC. He also played Famine, one of the Four Horsemen, in "Good Omens" (BBC/Amazon, 2019- ), a miniseries written by and co-produced by Neil Gaiman ("American Gods," Starz, 2017- ).
