DANNY HUSTON has followed in the family tradition of pursuing a varied creative career. He
began as a painter, but gravitated early to film directing and has helmed numerous television
and film projects. With a desire to learn more about the acting process so he could have better
understanding of the craft as a filmmaker, he began to take small parts in movies. Ultimately,
this led to a new passion and his breakthrough role in the independent film IVANSXTC. The
Bernard Rose directed feature was nominated for several Independent Spirit Awards, including
Best Male Performance for Huston's portrayal of Hollywood talent agent Ivan Beckman. Huston
has worked nonstop as an actor ever since.
Huston most recently finished filming the next Fernando Meirelles project THE CONSTANT
GARDNER opposite Ralph Fiennes. He is currently filming the British independent feature ALPHA
MALE and THE PROPOSITION opposite Guy Pearce.
In 2003 Huston worked on the Martin Scorsese project THE AVIATOR alongside Leonardo DiCaprio
and Alec Baldwin. He also appears in 21 GRAMS, Alejandro Inarritu's third feature-length film,
opposite Naomi Watts and Sean Penn. He has collaborated several times with directors Mike
Figgis and Bernard Rose. Upcoming releases include John Sayles' project SILVER CITY in which
Huston stars opposite Chris Cooper and Daryl Hannah.
Born in Rome, Huston was raised in Ireland and London with stops in Mexico and the United
States. He currently lives in Los Angeles with his wife Katie and daughter, Stella.
