Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Famous for playing double-crossers and villains, Henry Czerny was born in Toronto, Canada in 1959.

He would go on to co-star in "Mission: Impossible" (1996), uttering the franchise's famous catchphrase "This mission, if you choose to accept it." and later...

Czerny earned a particularly devoted cult following for his portrayal of Conrad Grayson on the series "Revenge" (ABC, 2011-15), which he stuck with from 2011 to 2015. In 2018, he joined Amy Adams and Patricia Clarkson on the miniseries "Sharp Objects" (HBO, 2018-), based on the debut novel by thriller writer Gillian Flynn.
