Eion Francis Hamilton Bailey (born June 8, 1976) is an American actor. He is known for playing Pvt. David Kenyon Webster in the HBO miniseries Band of Brothers and his roles in the films Fight Club, Center Stage, Mindhunters, and Sexual Life. He had a recurring role on the USA Network series Covert Affairs and the ABC series Once Upon a Time. He also had a recurring role as Ray, a psychopathic killer in the CBS series Stalker.


Bailey a grandi dans une famille de militaires (son père est un commandant de la Marine et deux de ses grands-pères étaient des pilotes de chasse). Durant son enfance, ses parents lui ont fait croire qu'il n'était pas humain, qu'il était un robot. Cette sensation de non humanité l'a beaucoup inspirée pour jouer Pinocchio dans Once Upon A Time.

Lorsqu'il avait douze ans, son père lui donnait des leçons de pilotage. Au lycée, il jouait beaucoup au baseball et avait un très bon potentiel mais son rapport avec l’entraîneur était très mauvais. Cependant, il trouve sa vocation dans son département d'art dramatique de lycée.

Puis, il réussit à faire ses preuves dans la comédie et a été accepté à la prestigieuse école d'art dramatique de New York : l'American Academy of Arts. Il s'est fait connaître dans plusieurs pièces de théâtre au niveau national. Il apparaît dans Equus au Pasadena Playhouse, dans Spoon River Anthology, dans Look Homeward, dans Angel et dans Dinner at Eight à l'Académie Américaine des Arts Dramatiques, dans Desire and I à l'Access Theater Santa Barbara, et dans la mère d'Icare au SBCC Studio Théâtre. Puis, il se montre très convaincant en passant un casting pour le rôle de Batman. A défaut d'être le favori, Eion Bailey était incontestablement le moins connu des acteurs. S'il avait réussi, il n'y aurait nul doute que sa carrière aurait pris une toute autre direction avec le masque de Batman.

Grâce à la série Once Upon A Time où il joue le rôle d'un mystérieux inconnu, qui s'avère ensuite être Pinocchio dans la saison 1, il réussit à séduire la grande majorité des téléspectateurs et se fait davantage connaître.

Mexican revolutionary Pancho Villa (Antonio Banderas) finds himself without adequate funding to finance his war against the military-run government. He also finds himself at odds with the Americans because of the Hearst media empire's press campaign against him. To counter both of these threats, he sends emissaries to movie producers to convince them to pay to film his progress and the actual battles. Producer D.W. Griffith (Colm Feore) is immediately interested and convinces Mutual Film Studios boss Harry E. Aitkin to send a film crew. Aitkin's nephew Frank Thayer is initially a mere errand boy for the studio, but he makes a good impression with Villa, who demands that Thayer be placed in charge of the project. Thayer and a camera crew team film Villa leading his men to victory in battle. Despite the failure of this initial footage (which draws derisive laughter from potential backers) Thayer convinces Aitkin to invest even more money in a second attempt, and also convinces Villa to participate in making a more narrative film.
