Henry Ian Cusick is a Scottish-Peruvian actor of stage, television, and film. For his role as Desmond Hume on the television series Lost, he has received a Primetime Emmy Award nomination.
Cusick began his career as a classical theatre actor. His first leading roles on stage 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.
On April 24, 2009, a lawsuit was filed by a former Lost employee, who claimed Cusick had sexually harassed her in October 2007.
