Lance Henriksen

Lance Henriksen is an American actor and potter . He was born May 5, 1940 in New York City. His trademarks as an actor are his deep, grainy voice and sepulchral face.

Henriksen first appeared in the film It Ain't Easy in 1972, and made his first major appearance in Dog Day Afternoon a few years later. Later films would make him much better known as an actor, especially his role as the android Bishop in Aliens (a character he would go on to play in the third film in the series). He later played Charles Bishop Weyland, the man Bishop's appearance was based on, in Alien vs. Predator.

In 1996, Henriksen starred in the TV series Millennium, produced by the creators of The X-Files. He played Frank Black, a former FBI agent who can see into the minds of murderers. The series was cancelled in 1999. Henriksen has recently acted in the ensemble of Into the West, a miniseries executive-produced by Steven Spielberg.
