Oliver Platt


B: January 12, 1960 in Windsor, Ontario

Oliver Platt is pictured as Jerry Ceppos in a Focus Features publicity still from the 2014 film Kill the Messenger. Like a number of Northern Stars, Oliver Platt is best thought of as American. He may have been born in Canada, but was raised in the United States. But where he was born seems of little consequence because it could be said that his success in life was determined for him before he was born. As a talented character actor and a sought after addition to many ensemble casts, Platt has shared the silver screen with a number of the Hollywood elite. And no wonder, if you look at the Platt family tree, you will find a member of the British Royal Family, and a member of Hollywood Film Royalty. Oliver Platt is a distant relative of famed director and actor Orson Welles, and a second cousin once-removed to the late Diana, Princess of Wales. He has played Dr. Daniel Charles across all three “Chicago” series, Chicago Fire, Chicago P.D. and Chicago Med.
