Biography

A theatrically trained actor, Harold Perrineau has appeared in a wide array of roles throughout his busy - but often unrecognized - career. Because of this variety of parts, Perrineau has been difficult to typecast - an accomplishment the actor not only appreciated, but worked hard to achieve. Though he broke in with a brief stint on "Fame" (NBC, 1981-87), Perrineau became more of a known commodity with a supporting role on HBO's grisly prison drama, "Oz" (1997-2003). But it was his role as Michael Dawson on the hit ABC series "Lost" (2004- ), a man struggling to be a father to his son (Malcolm David Kelly) after crash landing with 46 others on a mysterious island, that finally earned the actor the name recognition he long deserved.
