Biography

Il est le deuxième d'une famille de quatre enfants : un grand frère pilote à l'Us Air Force, Joshua, un petit frère, Zachary et une petite sœur, Katrina. Il est élevé à Traverse City (dans le Michigan) pendant sa petite enfance, mais déménagea au Kansas lorsque ses parents divorcent. Lorsque sa mère décède des complications d'un lupus au milieu des années 1970, il part vivre chez son père, Mel Boring, à Santa Barbara en Californie. Ils déménagent à Rockford dans l'Iowa en 1986.

Davies intègre l'American Academy of Dramatic Arts (AADA) à Pasadena, en Californie. Il obtient son premier rôle dans un épisode de Singer and Sons en 1990. Il tourne ensuite dans deux épisodes des Années coup de cœur en 1992. Il a également un petit rôle dans un téléfilm produit par la NBC : Shoot First: A Cop's Vengeance (1991). Il apparaît aussi dans les traits d'un « enfant miteux » dans une sitcom : 1776. Parmi les quelques rôles sans grande importance qu'il interprète pendant cette période, il a l'un des principaux rôles du film Guncrazy (un thriller de la chaîne de télévision Showtime) et apparaît brièvement dans Melrose Place.

En 1993, Davies tourne une publicité pour Subaru dans laquelle son personnage compare la voiture au punk rock. La publicité est repérée par plusieurs directeurs de casting. Peu après, Davies reçoit plusieurs propositions et scripts de films. Il commence alors à se construire un large répertoire avec des films tels que Twister et en 1998, il se voit attribuer un rôle majeur de sa carrière. En effet, il incarne un soldat américain parlant allemand se faisant recruter en Normandie par le Capitaine John Miller (Tom Hanks) afin de servir de traducteur lors d'une dangereuse mission visant à sauver un parachutiste perdu, (Matt Damon), dans le film Il faut sauver le soldat Ryan de Steven Spielberg.

Sa performance lui permet d'obtenir des rôles importants dans plusieurs films tels que Solaris avec George Clooney.

En 2008, il rejoint le casting principal de la série télévisée Lost : Les Disparus, dans laquelle il interprète le rôle de Daniel Faraday, physicien et membre d'équipage censé venir à la rescousse de naufragés.

After contemplating suicide by jumping off the Brooklyn Bridge, 15-year-old Craig Gilner (Keir Gilchrist), decides to go to the hospital to seek help. Craig tells Dr. Mahmoud (Aasif Mandvi) that he needs immediate help to which Dr. Mahmoud registers Craig for a one week stay in the hospital's psychiatric floor. It is revealed that Craig has a lot of pressure at his high school, Executive Pre-Professional (based on Manhattan's Stuyvesant High School), stressing over the need to turn in an application for a prestigious summer school, his shortcomings in the shadow of his best friend, Aaron (Thomas Mann), whom he considers to be great at everything, and his dad who pressures him to do well. At first, Craig is uncertain if he made the right choice to stay, mostly due to the fact that his friends might find out when he misses school, especially Nia (Zoë Kravitz), his crush and Aaron's girlfriend.

Dieter Dengler, a German-born U.S. Navy pilot in squadron VA-145, is shot down in his A-1 Skyraider over Laos in February 1966, while on a combat mission. He survives the crash only to be pursued, and ultimately captured, by the Pathet Lao. Dengler is given the chance for leniency by the Province Governor if he signs a document condemning America, but he refuses. He is tortured and taken to a prison camp. There he meets fellow American military soldiers and pilots, such as Gene DeBruin and Duane W. Martin, along with Y.C., Procet, and Phisit, some of whom have been captive for years. Dengler begins planning an escape, much to the disbelief of his fellow combatants, who have been downtrodden through physical and psychological torture by the camp guards.
