One of the most versatile actors of his generation,
GUY PEARCE made his mark over a decade ago playing a pretty young drag queen in THE ADVENTURES OF PRISCILLA, QUEEN OF THE DESERT. The film was a critical and box-office hit, becoming one of the 10 most successful Australian films of all time and receiving an OscarĀ®, two Golden Globe nominations, two BAFTAs and numerous AFI nominations. Guy's diverse array of roles since that time include Ed Exley in the slick crime drama LA CONFIDENTIAL and the complex amnesiac Leonard Shelby in the intelligent thriller MEMENTO. More recently Pearce starred as Charlie Burns in John Hillcoat and Nick Cave's IF Award-winning feature, THE PROPOSITION.
Pearce also appeared in TWO BROTHERS, from acclaimed French director Jean-Jacques Annaud (SEVEN YEARS IN TIBET); the HG Wells adaptation THE TIME MACHINE, directed by the author's great grandson Simon Wells; the big-budget adaptation of the Dumas novel THE COUNT OF MONTE CRISTO; and the drama FIRST SNOW, shot in New Mexico for first-time feature director Mark Fergus. In 2006, Guy starred as Andy Warhol, opposite Sienna Miller in the Edie Sedgwick biopic FACTORY GIRL, directed by George Hickenlooper from The Weinstein Company.
