Profile Bio Text
Guy Edward Pearce (born 5 October 1967) is an English-born Australian Screen Actors Guild Awards-nominated actor, and musician, perhaps best known for his critically-acclaimed portrayal of anterograde amnesia victim Leonard Shelby in Christopher Nolan`s Memento, his performance as Lieutenant Ed Exley in the film L.A. Confidential, and for his role as Mike Young in the popular Australian television series Neighbours.
Pearce was born in Ely, Cambridgeshire, the son of Anne Cocking (née Pickering), a County Durham-born schoolteacher in needlework and home economics, and Stuart Pearce, a New Zealand-born air force test pilot who died when Pearce was nine. When he was three years old, Pearce moved to Geelong, Australia, where his mother ran a deer farm. He attended The Geelong College and was a member of the GSODA Junior Players. From ages 16 to 22, he was a competitive amateur bodybuilder, culminating in a Mr. Natural Victoria title.
Pearce lived in Blackburn North in the late 1980s while working on the Australian drama series Neighbours.
Pearce starred in several theatre productions 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 MacGregor Saga (1993).
The director/producer/writer Frank Howson cast Pearce in his first three movies, and paid for him to go to the Cannes Film Festival in 1991 for the premiere of the Howson-directed Hunting. The accompanying Howson-funded publicity campaign brought Pearce to the attention of the international film industry. He made his first major film breakthrough shortly after, with his role as drag queen in The Adventures of Pricilla, Queen of the Desert in 1994. Since then, he has appeared in several U.S. production including L.A. Confidential, Ravenous, Rules of Engagement, Memento, The Count of Monte Cristo, and The Time Machine. Pearce recently portrayed pop artist Andy Warhol in Factory Girl and Harry Houdini in Death Defying Acts. He also appeared in The Road and Bedtime Stories with Adam Sandler.
Pearce continues to perform in Australian theatre productions as well as Australian films, such as The Hard Word (2002) and the critically lauded The Proposition (2005). In January 2009, Pearce returned to the stage after a seven year absence. He performed in the Melbourne Theatre Company`s production of Poor Boy, a play with music, co-written by Matt Cameron and Tim Finn.
Pearce appeared in Australian band Silverchair`s music video for "Across the Night" and in Razorlight`s video for "Before I Fall to Pieces". He recorded the soundtrack for A Slipping Down Life, singing and playing guitar on cover version of songs by Ron Sexsmith, Vic Chesnutt, and Robyn Hitchcock.
He has been married to Kate Mestitz, a psychologist, since March 1997. He is a long-time supporter of the Geelong Football Club in the Australian Football League. Pearce is an atheist.
