Andre Royo

Andre Royo (born July 18, 1968) is an American actor. He is best known for his role as "Bubbles" in The Wire, and has had guest starring appearances in Fringe, Party Down, and How To Make It In America. He had a small role in John Singleton's 2000 remake of the film Shaft. He had a brief appearance in Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles as a soldier in a unit that was sent back in time. He has also had roles in Heroes and Kenan and Kel. He is mostly known for his starring role on the HBO program The Wire as drug addict and confidential informant "Bubbles" (a regular character since the show's first season). Royo's portrayal of this character was so convincing that during on-location filming he was once approached by a real life addict and given heroin, with the compassionate addict declaring that the in-character Royo did "need a fix more than" him. Royo has called this his "street Oscar." Royo also appeared in the 2002 movie G, which was based on The Great Gatsby. He was introduced as the character Stephen Canfield during the third season of the television series Heroes.
