Henry Ian Cusick (born April 17, 1967; age 57) played Theo Stoller during Season 5 of 24.


Henry Ian Cusick was born in Trujillo, Peru on April 17, 1967. The son of a Peruvian mother and a Scottish father, he is fluent in both English and Spanish. Despite being born in Peru, he grew up in Trinidad and Tobago and Scotland, moving to the latter at the age of fifteen. He was raised Roman Catholic.

Cusick trained at The Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama before joining the Glasgow Citizens' Theatre. His first leading roles there included Dorian Gray in The Picture of Dorian Gray with Rupert Everett, Hamlet in The Marovitz Hamlet with Helen Baxendale, and Horner in The Country Wife.

His performances as Torquato Tasso in the Edinburgh International Festival production of Torquato Tasso, and Creon in the Citizens Theatre production of Oedipus, earned him a special commendation for the Ian Charleson Award 1995 for outstanding performance by a young actor in a classical theatre role.

He is perhaps best known to American audiences for his role as Desmond Hume on the series Lost, which also featured Daniel Dae Kim, Alan Dale and John Terry. He also acted in several scenes with Tracy Middendorf and Lana Parrilla. He was nominated for an Emmy for Best Guest Appearance for his work on that show, and was one of ten finalists for Best Supporting Actor in 2008.

His first appearance on screen was in the TV series Taggart, which over the years has featured Robert Carlyle and Tommy Flanagan.

Cusick and wife Annie are parents to three sons, Elias, Lucas and Esau.
