Daniel Day-Lewis

Day-Lewis in May 2013 Sir Daniel Michael Blake Day-Lewis (born 29 April 1957) is a retired English actor who holds both British and Irish citizenship. Born and raised in London, he excelled on stage at the National Youth Theatre, before being accepted at the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School, which he attended for three years. Day-Lewis has been hailed by many as one of the greatest and most widely respected actors of his generation, and one of the greatest actors of all time.

Despite his traditional training at the Bristol Old Vic, Day-Lewis is considered a method actor, known for his constant devotion to and research of his roles. Displaying a “mercurial intensity“, he would often remain completely in character throughout the shooting schedules of his films, even to the point of adversely affecting his health. He is one of the most selective actors in the film industry, having starred in only six films since 1998, with as many as five years between roles. Protective of his private life, he rarely gives interviews, and makes very few public appearances. In June 2014, he received a knighthood for services to drama. Day-Lewis announced his retirement in 2017, following the completion of his starring role in ''Phantom Thread''.

Day-Lewis shifted between theatre and film for most of the early 1980s, joining the Royal Shakespeare Company and playing Romeo in ''Romeo and Juliet'' and Flute in ''A Midsummer Night's Dream'', before appearing in the 1984 film ''The Bounty''. He starred in ''My Beautiful Laundrette'' (1985), his first critically acclaimed role, and gained further public notice with ''A Room with a View'' (1985). He then assumed leading man status with ''The Unbearable Lightness of Being'' (1988).

Day-Lewis has earned numerous awards throughout his career. Those awards include Academy Awards for Best Actor for his performances in ''My Left Foot'' (1989), ''There Will Be Blood'' (2007), and ''Lincoln'' (2012), respectively, making him the only male actor in history to have three wins in the Best Actor category and one of only three male actors to win three Oscars. He was also nominated for the Academy Award for Best Actor for his work in ''In the Name of the Father'' (1993), ''Gangs of New York'' (2002), and ''Phantom Thread'' (2017). Day-Lewis has won four BAFTA Awards for Best Actor, three Screen Actors Guild Awards, and two Golden Globe Awards. Provided by Wikipedia
