Patrick Bergin

Tall, dark-haired, dashing Irish lead who, after a career as a teacher of juvenile delinquents and children with learning disabilities, turned to full-time acting in 1980. Bergin came to prominence as 19th-century explorer Sir Richard Burton in Bob Rafelson's "Mountains of the Moon" (1990) and as Julia Roberts' compulsively tidy, psychopathic husband in "Sleeping With the Enemy" (1991). He portrayed a similarly seductive psycho--a con artist who seduces women by pretending to be a famous photographer--in Lizzie Borden's 1992 thriller "Love Crimes." Bergin's classic good looks made him a natural to play the title character in the TV movie "Robin Hood" (1991).
