Michael Biehn was born on July 31, 1956 in Anniston, Alabama, grew up in Lincoln, Nebraska, and at age 14 moved with his family to Lake Havasu, Arizona, where he won a drama scholarship to the University of Arizona. He left prematurely two years later to pursue an acting career in Hollywood. His first big role was as a psychotic fan stalking Lauren Bacall in The Fan (1981) and later appeared in The Lords of Discipline (1983). He hit the big-time when he was cast as Kyle Reese, the man sent back through time to stop Arnold Schwarzenegger in James Cameron (I)'s The Terminator (1984). This established a good working relationship with Cameron, a relationship that should have catapulted Biehn to international stardom. He starred in Cameron's subsequent films, Aliens (1986) and The Abyss (1989), the latter a standout performance as unstable Navy SEAL officer Lt. Coffey. In the 1990s he starred in films like Navy Seals (1990), K2 (1991) and was particularly memorable as Johnny Ringo in Tombstone (1993). Biehn is married and the father of four sons.

  • Has played a Navy SEAL 3 times: _The Abyss (1989)_ (qv), _Navy Seals (1990)_ (qv), and _The Rock (1996)_ (qv).
  • Was nominated for best actor at the 1986 "Saturn Awards" for _Aliens (1986)_ (qv) and won a special award at the 1989 "Saturn Awards" for _The Abyss (1989)_ (qv).
  • Loves basketball.
  • Was considered for the role of Caledon Hockley in _Titanic (1997)_ (qv) and even met with 'James Cameron (I)' (qv) for the part, but ultimately the role went to 'Billy Zane' (qv). Biehn and Zane appeared together in _Tombstone (1993)_ (qv) and _Susan's Plan (1998)_ (qv).
