Guy Pearce was born in England but his parents moved to Australia when Pearce was three years old. Pearce has always been interested in performing, and he excelled at mimicking accents. He starred in several plays when he was young, and graduated to television when he was cast in the Australian soap opera "Neighbours" in 1985, playing the role of Mike Young for several years. Pearce also found roles in other television series such as "Home and Away" (1988) and "Snowy River: The McGregor Saga" (1993).

His major breakthrough into film came with his role as a drag queen in "Priscilla, Queen of the Desert" in 1994. Since then, he has appeared in many American productions including "L.A. Confidential," "Rules of Engagement," "The Count of Monte Cristo," "The Time Machine" and notably in Christopher Nolan's "Momento."

More recently he starred in the critically lauded "The Proposition" (2005), directed by John Hillcoat whom he worked with again on "The Road." Pearce gained critical acclaim for his portrayal of pop artist Andy Warhol in "Factory Girl," played Harry Houdini in Gillian Armstrong's "Death Defying Acts" and had a cameo appearance in Kathryn Bigelow's Academy Award winning "The Hurt Locker."

Pearce will also appear in the 2011 Roger Donaldson thriller "The Hungry Rabbit Jumps" alongside Nicolas Cage.
