He gained stage experience in off-Broadway plays and returned to England for his film debut in “Another Country” (1984). The farm boy Westley in “The Princess Bride” (1987) helped launch his North American presence into big name features such as “Days of Thunder” (1990), “Hot Shots!” (1991) and “Bram Stoker’s Dracula” (1992).
Cary is politically active for causes he believes in such as protecting the environment and helping Native American Peoples. Currently, he is engaged to model/actress Lisa Marie Kurbikoff and lives in Malibu.
