He has also voiced the character of Chucky in the films of the Diabolic Doll (Child’s Play), has played Lon Suder in Star Trek: Voyager, Doctor Gediman in Alien: Resurrection and Gríma Lengua de Serpiente in the film adaptation of The Lord of the rings. He has also won a Saturn Award for The Exorcist III and has been nominated for an Emmy for his role in Deadwood.

Childhood and youth
Dourif was born in Huntington, West Virginia. His father, Jean Dourif, was an art collector. After her father died in 1953, her mother Joan, also an actress, married a second wife with golfer William C. Campbell, who helped her educate Brad and her five brothers (three sisters and two brothers). From 1963 to 1965, Dourif attended the Aiken Preparatory School in Aiken (South Carolina). There he demonstrated his interest in art and interpretation. What definitely encouraged him was to see his mother perform in a community theater. After Aiken College, he attended Fountain Valley College in Colorado Springs, graduating in 1969.
Beginning in school productions, he made progress in the local theater by participating with the Huntington Actors Union while going to class at Huntington Marshall University. At the age of 19, he left school and his hometown to move to New York, where he worked with the Circle Repertory Company. In the early 70s, Dourif participated in numerous performances in New York, including The Ghost Sonata, The Doctor in Spite of Himself, and When You Comin ‘Back, Red Ryder ?, which was seen by director Miloš Forman, who he did a test for the 1975 film Someone flew over the cuckoo’s nest or Trapped with no way out.
Although it is believed that this film was his debut on the big screen, in fact, his first appearance with a small role was in the film W. W. and the Dixie Dancekings (1975). In any case, it was his portrayal of the vulnerable Billy Bibbit in the Forman film that undoubtedly launched him definitively, earning a Golden Globe for Best Actor Debutante, a BAFTA Award for Best Supporting Actor and an Oscar Nomination for Best Actor of distribution. Despite all this and the moment of fame that this meant, he returned to New York where he continued with the theater and began to receive interpretation and direction classes at Columbia University until 1988, the year in which he moved to Hollywood. < / p>
