Michigan native Graham Sibley could have been a pro-water polo player instead of an actor. He took up the aquatic sport in college after a season of basketball, but when the young student enrolled in his first acting class, he was hooked. He switched his major from film to theater, earning a BFA before going on to appear in nearly 50 shorts and student films, and act in stage roles all over the L.A. area. He also appeared in some commercials, which paid a little better than his more artistic work. In 2004, Sibley had saved some money so he left California and headed for New York. There, Sibley scored a prominent role in the gory flick Zombie Honeymoon. After a year in the city that never sleeps, he headed back to L.A. -- but he had no intention of resting. He returned to the stage, joining a theater company called Ensemble Studio Theater, and appearing in TV series like Boston Public and The O.C.. In 2006, he signed on to appear in Nanking, Bill Guttentag's documentary about the 1937 massacre of the Chinese city.
