Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

An intense and gifted African-American actor with chiseled good looks, Isaiah Washington forged a successful career in film and television before hitting it big as Dr. Preston Burke on the ABC medical drama, "Grey's Anatomy" (ABC, 2005- ). Honing his dramatic skills on the New York stage, Washington went on to work in more than 30 films, including Spike Lee's "Clockers" (1995) and "Get on the Bus" (1996), and clocked in as guest star on a number of television series. Though reports surfaced in 2006 that Washington's on-set antics had caused conflict, both on the set of "Grey's" and on other projects as well, no one could deny the dedication he had shown his craft.
