WHERE ARE THEY NOW?
The legendary Doug Bradley, who donned the pins and makeup of Pinhead for eight of the nine 'Hellraiser' films, has become a cult icon in the genre. Bradley was originally going to take the role of one of the movers in the first 'Hellraiser' film, but opted for the Lead Cenobite instead, and the rest, they say, is history. He is very close friends with Clive Barker, and the two have worked together on many projects over the years, including 'Night Breed' (1990), 'Salome & The Forbidden' (1998), and founding the 'Dog Company' progressive theatre group in London. Bradley is one of only five actors to play the same horror character on at least six consecutive occasions, joining Sir Christopher Lee (Count Dracula), Robert Englund (Freddy Krueger), Warwick Davis (Leprechaun), Brad Dourif (Chucky) and Tobin Bell (Jigsaw). His most recent genre fare includes 'Pumpkinhead: Ashes To Ashes' (2006), 'Wrong Turn 5: Bloodlines' (2012), 'Shame The Devil' (2013), and 'Death House' (2014). In addition to his on-screen work, Doug has performed narrations on several songs by English extreme metal band, Cradle of Filth, as well as contributing guest vocals to their 2008 album 'Godspeed On The Devil's Thunder', on all songs except 'Tragic Kingdom'. Forever a student of the acting craft, Doug is also the author of the book 'Sacred Masks: Behind The Mask Of The Horror Actor', which explores the history of masks in society and their applications in horror films. A regular on the convention circuit, Bradley is rumored to be working with Clive Barker on a re-make of the original 'Hellraiser' film. He lives in London with his wife Lynne, two children, and a cat.
Genre veteran Lance Henriksen was originally approached by producers for the role of Larry Cotton in the original 'Hellraiser' (1987), but declined to work on the vampire film 'Near Dark' instead. In 2005, he came full circle and finally made his debut in the franchise, as The Host in 'Hellworld'. Lance is known worldwide for his horror and science fiction roles, which include 'The Terminator' (1984), 'Pumpkinhead' (1988), 'Stone Cold' (1991), 'Scream 3' (2000), and 'When A Stranger Calls' (2006). Henriksen is perhaps best known in the role of Bishop in James Cameron's popular sequel 'Aliens' (1986) and its follow-up, 'Alien 3' (1992). He also went on to portray a separate role, Charles Bishop Weyland, in the 2004 mashup 'Alien Vs. Predator'. In addition, director Victor Salva was said to have written the character of the Creeper specifically for Lance in 'Jeepers Creepers' (2001), but Lance was unable to participate. On TV, Henriksen starred in 'Millennium' (1996-1999), as Frank Black, a former FBI agent who possessed a unique ability to see into the minds of killers. Henriksen's performances on 'Millennium' earned him critical acclaim, a People's Choice Award nomination for Favorite New Male TV Star, and three consecutive Golden Globe nominations for Best Performance by an Actor in a TV Series from 1997-1999. Most recently, Lance released an autobiography, titled 'Not Bad For A Human', which can be purchased on his website, and he is one of the creators of the Dark Horse comic book series 'To Hell You Ride', which came out in trade paperback form in 2013. He is also very active on the horror convention circuit, always eager to meet with his fans and discuss his many film and television roles.

Henry Cavill, Mike from 'Hellworld', is arguably the most famous 'Hellraiser' alums out there today. He is best known for taking over the iconic role of Superman in 2013's 'Man Of Steel', a role he will reprise in the upcoming 'Batman Vs. Superman: Dawn Of Justice' in 2015 and the superhero mashup 'Justice League' after that. He originally landed the role for 'Superman Returns' in 2005, but when director Brian Singer took over the project, and recast the role in favor of Brandon Routh. Cavill has been the official spokesman for the Dunhill men's fragrance collection since 2008, and is an ambassador for The Royal Marines Charitable Trust Fund. Prior to landing the role of Superman, Cavill was known for the roles he "almost" got, including James Bond (2005's 'Casino Royale'), Cedric Diggory (2005's 'Harry Potter And The Goblet Of Fire') and Edward Cullen (2008's 'Twilight').
