Eamonn Walker

Actor

6/12/1962 (57 years old) London, England

An imposing, Britain-born player who initially set out to be a dancer, Walker turned to acting after an injury sidelined his career. In the '90s, he appeared on numerous TV series in his homeland before coming to prominence Stateside and earning a CableACE Award as a simultaneously sympathetic and scary Muslim leader on the HBO prison series Oz. During his tenure, Walker embodied the equally complex title character in a celebrated, modern-day small-screen adaptation of Othello. Although he occasionally popped up on the big screen, TV remained his primary medium, and in 2006 he landed the plum role of a high-powered attorney on Justice.
