He portrays the famous Batman comic book character Commissioner James 'Jim' Gordon in the popular TV series Gotham (2014-2017). Jim Gordon was one of the characters who kept the criminals of the fictional city Gotham in check in pre-Batman times.
In the TV series Southland (2009-2013), he portrayed Ben Sherman, a rather traumatised Los Angeles police officer with a heart of gold and a mean fist of justice.
Fans of The O.C. (2003-2007) will recognise him as Ryan Atwood, one of the protagonists in that TV series. The character grew from the troubled youngster that was likely to punch you in the face into a successful and balanced adult coming to terms with himself, a difficult character arc which Ben McKenzie beautifully put on screen.
FACTS welcomes this great actor to FACTS Spring Edition 2017, on April 1st and 2nd, in Flanders Expo, Ghent. Ben McKenzie will be available for photoshoots, signing sessions and Q&A on both days.
