What can you tell me about Graham Greene, who starred in Pathfinder and other movies about American Indians?
—Mary K. Byars, Mount Hope, Ala.

Greene is perhaps best known for his Oscar-nominated performance in the 1990 movie Dances With Wolves. He's also appeared in more than 100 other films and television shows, often in roles that call on the authenticity he brings as an Oneida Indian who grew up on a Canadian reserve. Before his acting career took off, he worked at a carpet warehouse, in a factory making railway cars, as a high-rise steelworker, landscape gardener, carpenter and bartender, and as a roadie and soundman for Toronto-based rock bands. Greene, 56, lives two hours north of Ontario with his wife and has a child from his first marriage.
