He joined local theatre groups at a young age and appeared in such productions as "The King and I", "Fiddler on the Roof" and "The Wizard of Oz". In 1985, just two days after his final high school exam, Guy started a four-year stint as "Mike Young" on the popular Aussie soap Vecinos (1985). At age 20, Guy appeared in his first film, Heaven Tonight (1990), then, after a string of appearances in film, television and on the stage, he won the role of an outrageous drag queen in Las aventuras de Priscilla, reina del desierto (1994).

Confidential (1997), Memento (2000), La propuesta (2005), Factory Girl (2006), En tierra hostil (2008), El discurso del rey (2010) and the HBO mini-series,Mildred Pierce (2011). Next to acting, Guy has had a life-long passion for music and songwriting.
