He accredits his mother for single-handedly saving her own life and that of her newborn baby. When he was nineteen, he moved to London to pursue his career in films, a career that is now spanning over 40 years and in which Kier has reached a cult status.

He has lived on London, Rome and Paris, and now resides in Los Angels. His trademark roles are those of lunatics, shady characters, murderers, johns and vampires. He has worked with directors like Rainer Werner Fassbinder, Paul Morrissey, Lars von Trier, Christoph Schlingensief, Wim Wenders, Jerry Bruckheimer among others.
