Biography

Sensuously handsome and full-lipped, this actor quickly established himself in a handful of featured roles in films and as a regular on the acclaimed drama series "Picket Fences" (CBS, 1992-96). Born in Australia of Greek descent, Mandylor abandoned a professional soccer career after sustaining injuries and relocated to Hollywood to pursue acting. He quickly won a co-starring role as Willem Dafoe's younger brother in the Holocaust drama "Triumph of the Spirit" (1989). Director Oliver Stone cast him as a drugged-out Italian aristocrat in his biopic "The Doors" (1991) and Mandylor went on to star as a young Frank Costello in "Mobsters" (1991), another Hollywood picture romancing the image of Chicago gangsters and Prohibition. He also played an actor in the soap opera spoof "Soapdish" (1991).

Mandylor on the quirky drama "Picket Fences": "To me, everything that's happened on the show has happened some place, some time in the world - look at Jeffrey Dahmer, look at these people who lock up their kids for days like animals. The world's gone nuts." - quoted in the Daily News, March 31, 1994
