Bio

Roger Cross is a Jamaica-born Canadian actor best known for his role as Special Agent Curtis Manning in the action drama series 24, from 2005-2007.

He has a starring role as homicide detective Staff Sergeant Boyd Bloom, who often feels like a glorified babysitter after a bullet sidelined him from the fieldwork he loved, in the police procedural crime drama television series Motive.

He also had starring roles in the sci-fi series First Wave, The Guard and Continuum, as well as a recurring role on the action-adventure series Arrow.

Born in Christiana, Jamaica, Curtis moved to Canada with his parents and siblings when he was eleven. He graduated with a degree in Aviation and General Studies from Trinity Western University in Langley, B.C.

While waiting for a flying job he began to take stunt jobs on film sets and eventually shifted his focus to acting.

He was cast in guest roles on such series as The X-Files, Sliders, Stargate SG-1, Highlander, Relic Hunter, Star Trek: Enterprise, and The 4400, among others.

He guest starred in the pilot episodes of Viper, The Sentinel and Sliders.

He was also a regular on the sci-fi series First Wave and appeared in such films as The Chronicles of Riddick, X2, Ballistic: Ecks vs. Sever and Beautiful Joe.

His most recognisable role has been Agent Curtis Manning on 24. His role began at the start of the show's fourth season in 2005 as a recurring character; however he later became a main cast member.

For the show's sixth season, he was changed back from a main cast member to a recurring character.

The motives behind this switch are apparent now as his character was shot and killed in the fourth episode by friend Jack Bauer, as Cross' character was about to compromise the mission by killing a former terrorist for whom he held a personal grudge.

Cross can be seen in the Oliver Stone film, World Trade Center, which was released in August 2006.

He currently resides in Los Angeles with his longtime companion, German actress Josephine Jacob. They have one son.
