THE COUNT OF MONTE CRISTO
After saving Edmond's life, Fernand Mondego, portrayed by GUY PEARCE, reveals
his true colors when he conspires to have his friend imprisoned in the island
prison Chateau D'If and steal his fiancĂ©e.
The English born, Australian raised actor began his professional career at 18
playing the role of Mike Young in the internationally successful Australian TV
series, "Neighbors." At age 11, not knowing that a career as an actor
was to become an integral part of his life, Pearce joined local amateur theatre
companies performing in a number of productions including "Aladdin,"
"The King and I," "The Wizard of Oz" and "Fiddler On
The Roof" in his hometown of Geelong, Victoria. During his four-year stint
on "Neighbors," Pearce began working in film appearing in "Heaven
Tonight," "Hunting," and "My Forgotten Man," in which
he played the notoriously infamous Errol Flynn.
It was his outstanding performance as a drag queen in "Priscilla, Queen
of the Desert" that made the movie world sit up and take notice. Since
then, Pearce has continued playing diverse roles such as the ambitious cop Ed
Exley in Curtis Hanson's "L.A. Confidential," the reluctant army
captain, Boyd, in Antonia Bird's "Ravenous," an aspiring singer
opposite Lili Taylor in Toni Kalem's "A Slipping-Down Life," and
Marine prosecuting attorney, Biggs, in William Friedkin's "Rules of
Engagement." He most recently appeared in Christopher Nolan's
"Memento" and the Australian movie "Till Human Voices Wake
Us" with Helena Bonham Carter. He will soon star in a new feature-film
adaptation of "The Time Machine" and the Australian film "The
Hard Word" with Rachel Griffiths.
