Dash Mihok

While much of New York native Dash Mihok's early work was lensed in his hometown, his most powerful role, Private 1st Class Doll in Terrence Malick's breathtaking World War II drama "The Thin Red Line" (1998), took him to Guadalcanal and Queensland, Australia. Although the actor admitted to suffering a bruised ego as a result of the cut his role took in editing (the reclusive Malick reportedly shot enough footage for a ten hour film), his subtly intuitive performance as the bullish Doll, while truncated, was still among the most moving.
