Pat Healy

Pat Healy is an actor, writer and director from Chicago born Sept. 14, 1971 who is best known for his roles in “Better Call Saul” and the Steven Spielberg film “The Post.” In 1993, he graduated from Illinois State University with a degree in theatre. While attending ISU he performed in theatre productions like “Romeo and Juliet” and “Cloud Nine.” He also performed at the Illinois Shakespeare Festival and was among those recognized in the ISF’s “40 years/40 actors” honor roll in 2017.

Healy’s career took off later in life. After graduating from ISU, he moved to Los Angeles and was able to land roles every so often, but it was an inconsistent living. He got through slow periods by utilizing his writing skills and doing odd jobs. Less than five years ago, he was driving for Lyft.

A month after he began driving for Lyft, he was offered a role and within two months, he was offered three roles at the same time and had to turn one down. The roles he accepted were in “Better Call Saul” and “Killers of the Flower Moon,” which brought opportunities like working alongside Carol Burnett.

Pat Healy’s commitment to working hard and being a good, humble person has contributed to his much deserved success and made him a role model in many people’s eyes.
