Harley Cross was born in New York in 1978. He first became interested in acting at age four when he was chosen by an audience to participate in a children's play. He attended school at Massillion in Paris, France and speaks fluent French. Cross made his film debut as Diane Keaton's son in Mrs. Soffel (1984). He went on to portray Tom Berenger's son in Someone to Watch Over Me (1987) and Jane Fonda's son in Stanley & Iris (1990). Cross was excellent as Martin Sheen's son in the disturbing horror film The Believers (1987) and was likewise outstanding as a crafty little boy who's abducted by ruthless hired killers Roy Scheider and Adam Baldwin in the terrific road movie thriller Cohen and Tate (1988). Cross gave his most impressive and accomplished performance to date as a deeply troubled and psychotic 12-year-old juvenile delinquent sociopath in the potent and unnerving indie drama The Boy Who Cried Bitch (1991). Cross recently had a small part as a young man in a gay bar in the acclaimed _Kinsey_. In addition to his motion picture credits, Cross has also acted in several TV commercials and was one of the stars of the short-lived sitcom Sister Kate (1989). He's also appeared as a guest star on Law & Order (1990), Touched by an Angel (1994) and other shows.
