Biography

Classically-trained Irish actor Derrick O'Connor has appeared on stage as a member of the Royal Shakespeare Company, and internationally in some of Hollywood's biggest blockbusters. A frequent collaborator with oddball director Terry Gilliam (who served as "Monty Python"'s iconic animator), O'Connor caught audiences' eyes in the early '80s as a lead robber in Gilliam's epoch-hopping action adventure "Time Bandits" and his subsequent bureaucratic satire, "Brazil". In 1989, O'Connor was cast alongside Mel Gibson and Danny Glover in "Lethal Weapon 2", playing right hand man to the film's diplomatically immune villain. Arnold Schwarzenegger ranks among O'Connor's most formidable costars; the pair played a cop and priest, respectively, in the 1999 apocalyptic actioner, "End of Days". O'Connor portrayed several more priests over the course of the next decade, including Father Everett in Ben Affleck's blind superhero misfire "Daredevil", and the mentally unsound Father Kerrigan in HBO's dust bowl epic, "Carnivàle". In 2006, O'Connor landed a small part in Gore Verbinski's swashbuckling sequel, "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest". Acting opposite Hollywood hunk Johnny Depp, O'Connor played a deluded old man toiling under Captain Jack Sparrow in the movie. O'Connor also appeared in multiple episodes of J.J. Abrams' Golden Globe-winning espionage series, "Alias".
