Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Shawn Doyle began studying his craft almost from birth.

After a two-episode appearance on "24" (Fox, 2001-2010), Doyle began co-starring on the acclaimed series "Big Love" (HBO, 2006-2011) in 2006.

As the 2010s continued, Doyle would play recurring roles on shows like "Fargo" (AMC, 2014-) and "House of Cards" (Netflix, 2013-18). He joined the main cast of the...
