Professional Career

Since attempting landscape gardening, he decided to pursue acting after seeing the war film Platoon (1986). Acting seemed an unusual career path for him because of his working-class upbringing, but he didn’t try it until later. Dominic landed a role in the television series Raw FM in 1997, followed by a role in Mission: Impossible II (2000), which was shot in Australia. He rose to fame as a television personality. He won the Green Card lottery in 2000 and now lives with his family in Los Angeles.

He was discovered by a US talent scout and has since been busy with appearances in films such as Equilibrium (2002), John Doe (2002), Blade: Trinity (2004), and the forthcoming thriller Three Way (2004), as well as a new crime procedural called Strut. Dominic Purcell is best known for portraying Lincoln Burrows on Prison Break, a four-season American television thriller that ran on the Fox network from 2005 to 2009.

Paul Scheuring produced the American television serial drama Prison Break for Fox. Lincoln Burrows (Dominic Purcell) and Michael Scofield (Wentworth Miller) are two brothers who have been sentenced to death for a murder they did not commit, and Scofield devises a complex scheme to help his brother flee jail and clear his identity. Matt Olmstead, Kevin Hooks, Marty Adelstein, Dawn Parouse, Neal H. Moritz, and Brett Ratner, who directed the pilot episode, are executive producers alongside creator Paul Scheuring. Ramin Djawadi’s music for the series was nominated for a Primetime Emmy Award in 2006.

Dominic plays Lincoln Burrows, a high school dropout and former felon who is wrongfully convicted of the murder of Terence Steadman, the Vice President of the United States, in the Prison Break series. Purcell was cast three days before the launch of the film, making him the last member of the original cast. He auditioned for the part when he was already appearing on North Shore as Tommy Ravetto.

Purcell and Fox have been friends since they worked together on. As a result, he received the Prison Break pilot script. Purcell’s first impression did not persuade Scheuring that he was a good choice for the part, as the actor arrived at the audition with his hair in a bun.


In 2007, Purcell was the recipient of the AACTA Awards for Best Actor after his performance in Prison Break. In 2009, he was nominated for the Inside Films Awards for Best Feature Film after his performance in Balibo.
