Biography

Equally at home in comedy or drama, David Lyons was an actor whose versatility made him a sought after talent both in Hollywood and in his native Australia. Lyons was born on April 4, 1976 in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. The stage-trained Lyons made his television debut in 2005 with a guest role on the popular Australian police drama "Blue Heelers" (7 Network, 1995-2006), but it would be the role of brash, fun-loving Seaman Josh Holiday on the Navy drama "Sea Patrol" (Nine Network, 2007-2011) that made Lyons a star in his homeland. Weekly exposure on the popular series lead to starring roles in the "Ozploitation" thrillers "Storm Warning" (2008) and "Cactus" (2008), and brought Lyons to the United States to play the arrogant and superficial Dr. Simon Brenner on the final season of the long-running medical drama "ER" (NBC, 1994-2009). From that point, Lyons moved regularly between work in his homeland and the United States. He starred in the Australian TV movie, "A Model Daughter: The Killing of Caroline Byrne" (Network 10, 2009) before returning to Hollywood to play Julia Roberts' skinny-dipping, would-be beau Ian in "Eat Pray Love" (2010), as well as the title role on the short-lived superhero series, "The Cape" (NBC, 2011). He headed home again to star in the thriller "Swerve" (2011) and the cricket comedy "Save Your Legs" (2012). In 2012, Lyons was cast as Marine-turned-militia leader Sebastian Monroe on the hit series "Revolution" (NBC, 2012- ), executive-produced by J.J. Abrams.
