Cary Elwes is a well known and respected film actor, whose films have ranged from comedy, to drama, to horror. He is probably best remembered for the characters Westley in the fantasy comedy "The Princess Bride" and Robin of Locksley in the comedy spoof "Robin Hood: Men In Tights."
Elwes first gained mainstream popularity in the US in 1988 with his starring role as Westley in Rob Reiner's hit film "The Princess Bride." He went on to appear in many other major motion pictures such as "Hot Shots!," "Glory," "Days of Thunder," "Bram Stoker's Dracula," and as the lead in "Robin Hood: Men in Tights." In 2004 Elwes starred as Dr. Lawrence Gordon in the horror film "Saw" , the movie was a runaway hit, has spawned four sequels as of now, and is already thought of by many as a modern horror classic.
Elwes has only made one appearance in videogames, that of the titular character in inXile Entertainments "The Bard's Tale" in 2004. Elwes not only provided the voice for The Bard, but he wrote his dialogue as well. The game was released on PS2, Xbox, and PC and was received with mediocre reviews for its uninspired gameplay and somewhat flat jokes. However, the voice acting was generally thought of as the best aspect of the game, with Elwes' performance being the highlight.
Elwes has a wife, Lisa Marie, and a daughter, Dominique. He and his family currently live in Los Angeles, California.
