As an intense, versatile actor, Lance Henriksen has starred in a variety of films that have allowed him to perfect his talents and make a name for himself in the horror/science fiction community.

He has played a clean-cut FBI agent, a psychotic motorcycle-gang leader, a soulless, murderous vampire, a desperate father and a burned-out, world-weary homicide detective. But Henriksen is perhaps best known for portraying the android Bishop in Aliens (1986) and Alien 3 (1992). He would then go on to play Charles Bishop Weyland, the man Bishop’s appearance was based on, in Alien vs. Predator (2007).

Henriksen has been nominated for a Golden Globe for his role in Millennium and received a Life Career Award from the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror Films.
