Today’s Birthday April 29: British actor Daniel Day-Lewis (1957-).
Daniel Day-Lewis is very picky about the roles he chooses, and is best known for his ability to entirely assume the characters of the parts he plays.
Born on April 29, 1957, in London, he is the son of Poet Laureate of England Cecil Day-Lewis, son-in-law of playwright Arthur Miller and grandson of one-time British cinema boss Sir Michael Balcon.
He made his debut in Sunday Bloody Sunday (1971) at the age of 14, but it would be 11 years before he would appear on the big screen again, in Gandhi (1982).
For his performances in My Beautiful Laundrette (1985) and A Room with a View (1985), Day-Lewis was named best supporting actor by the New York Film Critics.
For The Unbearable Lightness of Being (1988) he studied the Czech language and adopted the accent.
For his academy award-winning performance in My Left Foot (1989) he spent weeks wheelchair-bound to get into character as the quadriplegic Irish writer.
Day-Lewis’ depiction of an 18th century outdoors man raised by Indians in The Last of the Mohicans (1992), his work with director Martin Scorsese on The Age of Innocence (1993), and on In the Name of the Father (1993) each produced box office smashes.
He collaborated with Scorsese for the second time on the epic blockbuster Gangs of New York (2002).
His preparation for the role entailed talking in a New York accent for the duration of the shoot and sharpening his knives at the dinner table.
Day-Lewis’s performance in 2007’s There Will Be Blood earned him another Oscar for best actor.
His latest role was as Abraham Lincoln in Steven Spielberg’s 2012 biopic of the US civil-war president.
The role earned him yet another best actor gong, making him the first man to win three Oscars for lead roles.
