Birmingham made his television debut on an episode of the series, Riptide. Since then, he has starred in more than 60 ilm and television productions. He co- starred alongside Academy Award nominee Jeremy Renner in Taylor Sheridan's film, Wind River, in which he received praise for his performance as Martin Hanson. He pre- viously collaborated with Sheridan in the critically acclaimed, Hell or High Water, co-starring alongside Academy Award win- ner Jeff Bridges. Birminghams powerful performance in Hell or High Water con- tinues to be singled out and highlighted by notable film reviewers, and the film itself was nominated for Best Picture in the 2017 Academy Awards. On TV, Birminghams powerful portrayal of Dogstar in Steven Spielberg's six-part TV miniseries, Into the West, captured the attention of audiences worldwide. He has appeared in a number of other series, including Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Veronica Mars, 10 Items or Less, Nip/ Tuck, Castle, The Mentalist, House of Cards and the Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. Birmingham is perhaps best known for his portrayal of Billy Black in the block- buster films, Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse and Breaking Dawn, based on the best- selling books by Stephanie Meyer. He most recently recurred in Freeforms Siren, and TNTs Animal Kingdom, and is wrapping up five episodes of the limited Netflix series, Pieces of Her, opposite Toni Collette.
