Biography

A character actor who was often cast as a villain, Michael Raymond-James impressed audiences with a breakout role on HBO's "True Blood" (2008- ) as a Southern lady-killer. The epic vampire drama, which fused gothic love stories, cinematic gore, and plenty of onscreen nudity, became an overnight cult sensation, and turned its cast into A-list superstars. Raymond-James reaped much from "True Blood's" popularity, scoring a lead role on "Terriers" (FX, 2010- ), as a retired criminal who links up with a discharged police officer (Donal Logue) to form a private investigation unit. His nuanced performance and onscreen chemistry with Logue solidified Raymond-James as a viable actor, and established him as one of Hollywood's most sought-after talents for years to come.
