Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

An intense actor, Anson Mount had several credits under his belt when he earned teen fame as Britney Spears' love interest in the coming-of-age dramedy "Crossroads" (2002). Doing his best to avoid being typecast as a lightweight hunk, Mount landed fulltime gigs on "Line of Fire" (ABC, 2003-04), "The Mountain" (The WB, 2004-05) and "Conviction" (NBC, 2006), as well as booking supporting roles in "In Her Shoes" (2005) and "Straw Dogs" (2011). He came into his own as an adult actor when he impressed critics and fans alike in the demanding dramatic lead role of vengeance-seeking Civil War veteran Cullen Bohannon in the railroad-themed Western "Hell on Wheels" (AMC, 2011-16). Unlike many of his contemporaries who found early success in teen projects, Anson Mount actively focused on building a career rooted in heavier roles and more challenging subject matter.

Notes

"I never even lived with a woman. It's nothing I'm not open to, but at this point I know the kind of woman I could have a relationship with, and I'm not willing to compromise. The most important thing is she has to make me laugh. I can be a pretty serious guy." --Anson Mount quoted in USA Today, February 12, 2002.

"I also like dating people that aren't in the [entertainment] business. I'd just like to meet somebody normal, you know? I'm doing that horrible thing they call dating, but what else are you gonna do."-Mount
