However, Harold himself changed the name back to Perrineau after discovering that there was already is a person in the Screen Actors Guild Union named Harold Williams.

After he finished high school, Harold enrolled at Shenandoah Conservatory where he studied music and theater, but never actually graduated.

In 1991 he was selected for the role of Robert Evans in the TV series “I‘ll Fly Away” (1991-1993), and then in 1995 featured in the comedy “Smoke”, starring Harvey Keitel and William Hurt. These contributed steadily to his net worth.

However, Harold made his breakout in the Academy Award- nominated film “Romeo + Juliet” in 1996 as Mercutio, starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Claire Danes, and the same year appeared in the thriller “Blood and Wine”. By the end of the ‘90s, Harold had also appeared in the drama “Lulu on the Bridge” (1998), and comedy “The Best Man” (1999), which only increased his net worth, while in 1997 he started portraying Augustus Hill in the Primetime Emmy Award- nominated TV series “Oz” (1997-2003).

The following year, Harold secured the role of Link in the action sci-fi film “The Matrix Reloaded”, with Keanu Reeves in the lead role, repeated in the sequel “Matrix 3” (2003). His next important role was as Michael Dawson in “Lost” (2004-2010), raising his net worth considerably, while concurrently in 2007 he had a supporting role in the horror “28 Weeks Later”, with Jeremy Renner and Robert Carlyle.

In 2012 he appeared in the Academy Award- winning historical thriller “Zero Dark Thirty”, with such stars as Jessica Chastain, Chris Pratt and Joel Edgerton in the lead roles, while most recently he portrayed Judge Keller in the TV series “Goliath” (2016).
