Michael Emerson stars as Ben on ABC's "Lost."

After graduating from Drake University with a major in Theater and a minor in Art, Michael Emerson moved to New York, forgot about acting and landed a job in magazine illustration.  Emerson later followed a romance to Florida, where he began acting again and supported himself with a variety of occupations, including directing and teaching. He acted professionally in the south for many years before entering the MFA Program at the Alabama Shakespeare Festival (University of Alabama). After graduating, Emerson once again moved to New York as a struggling actor and found a break in Moises Kaufman's Off-Broadway production of "Gross Indecency."

On Broadway, Emerson appeared in "Hedda Gabler" and "The Iceman Cometh." His television credits include guest starring roles on "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit," "Law & Order: Criminal Intent," "Without a Trace," "The X-Files" and "The Inside," among many others. For his performance as William Hinks on "The Practice," Emerson was awarded the 2001 Emmy for Outstanding Guest Actor in a Dramatic Series.

On the big screen, Emerson appeared in such films as "Saw," "The Legend of Zorro," "Playing by Heart," "The Imposters," "Jumping off Bridges" and "Straight-Jacket."

Emerson is keen on Shakespeare and the classical theater, drawing and ghost stories. Emerson supports off-off-Broadway theater and theater-community charities (BC/EFA and GMHC) and publicly supported radio stations.

Emerson is married to actress Carrie Preston.
