  Biography  

 personal life
Perrineau was born in Brooklyn, New York, the son of Harold Williams and Sylvia Perrineau. His parents changed his name to Williams when he was seven. Harold later legally changed his name back to his birth name, after discovering there was already a Harold Williams in the Screen Actors Guild union. Perrineau attended Shenandoah University, but did not graduate. Perrineau and his wife, Brittany, have a daughter, Aurora Robinson Perrineau, born 1994. Their second daughter, Wynter Aria, was born on May 7, 2008.

 acting career
In 1989, Perrineau was cast as the original Tyrone Jackson in the world premiere of the stage adaptation of the 1980 hit movie Fame at the Walnut Street Theatre, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Perrineau took the role of Link in The Matrix series after the original operator Tank was written off the script when Marcus Chong was fired over money disputes. Lost co-star Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje starred with Perrineau on the HBO series Oz.

Perrineau played the character Michael Dawson on ABC's hit show Lost. He was temporarily written off when his character left the island with his son at the end of season two and did not appear at all in season three. In July 2007, it was announced Perrineau would return to the main cast for the show's fourth season. However, this return was short lived, as the fourth season was his last as a regular cast member; Dawson died in the season finale. He made one guest appearance in the sixth and final season.

He stars also in 30 Days of Night: Dark Days alongside Rhys Coiro, Mia Kirshner, Kiele Sanchez (also a Lost co-star), Diora Baird and Monique Ganderton.

Perrineau appeared in the 2008 music video, "Yes We Can".

Perrineau will voice the title character from Marvel's new Blade anime coming to G4 January 2012.

He was also eaten by a bear in The Edge.
