Matthias Schoenaerts stars in "Lewis and Clark" on HBO as William Clark.

Flemish actor Matthias Schoenaerts got his start on stage acting opposite his father, Julien Schoenaerts, in "The Little Prince" and made his screen debut in Stijn Coninx's Oscar-nominated "Daens."

After finishing his training at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts in Antwerp, Schoenaerts performed in a number of stage productions, award-winning shorts and feature films such as "Loft," "Any Way the Wind Blows" and "My Queen Karo."

Later in his career, Schoenaerts earned even wider European notoriety with his supporting role in director Paul Verhoeven's "Black Book," but his acclaimed lead performance in director Michael Roskam's "Bullhead" (Academy Award nominee for Best Foreign Film, 2012) is what brought Schoenaerts international acclaim. For his performance, he won the FIPRESCI Award for Best Actor at Palm Springs International Film Festival, the Award for Best Actor at Fantastic Fest and the Acting Award at AFI, among dozens of other awards.

In 2012, Schoenaerts appeared alongside Marion Cotillard in Jacques Audiard's "Rust and Bone," which debuted at the Cannes International Film Festival.

Schoenaerts more recently contributed lead performances to three films: Alan Rickman's "A Little Chaos," which co-starred Kate Winslet, Thomas Vinterberg's "Far from the Madding Crowd," which co-starred Carey Mulligan, and Saul Dibb's "Suite Fran├žaise," which starred Michelle Williams and Kristin Scott-Thomas. Schoenaerts was also seen in "The Drop," starring Tom Hardy, Noomi Rapace and James Gandolfini, Eric Van Looy's English-language version of "Loft," and "Blood Ties," directed by Guillaume Canet.
