Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Touted by TV Guide as one of the most promising young actors in Hollywood, Eion (EE-un) Bailey first drew attention portraying the troubled Alan Strang in a Pasadena Playhouse revival of "Equus" in 1997. Although a native Californian, the actor was atypical of what that label generally conjures. Possessing curly black hair, deep blue eyes and a broad open face, he was hardly the blond surfer dude one usually associates with Southern Californians. Bailey moved to the small screen appearing as a bully who is possessed by a hyena in an episode of the popular "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" before appearing as the former boyfriend of reformed nymphet Jen (Michelle Williams) in a two-episode arc of "Dawson's Creek."
