Michael Connell Biehn (born July 31, 1956) is an American actor and director. He is best known for his roles in James Cameron's science fiction action films The Terminator (as Kyle Reese), Aliens (as Cpl. Dwayne Hicks), and The Abyss (as Lt. Coffey). He has also acted in such films as Tombstone, The Rock, and Planet Terror. On television, Biehn appeared in the cast of the Emmy Award-winning 1980s television series Hill Street Blues and the short-lived syndicated show Adventure Inc.

As previously stated, Michael Biehn played Cpl. Dwayne Hicks in Aliens and later reprised his role in the video game Aliens: Colonial Marines. Additionally, he appeared in the documentaries Alien Evolution and The Alien Saga as himself.


  • Biehn was not the first choice to portray Corporal Hicks; the part was originally played by James Remar. However, two weeks into filming, Remar was caught in possession of illegal substances and was fired from the production.[2] Cameron knew Biehn from filming The Terminator two years previously, and he was subsequently cast as Hicks.
    • As a result of his late casting, Biehn did not get to customise his own combat armor as the other Marine actors had done. The motifs on his battledress had already been created by Remar.
