Ralph Fiennes

Biography

Date of Birth 22 December 1962, Ipswich, Suffolk, England, UK Birth Name Ralph Nathaniel Fiennes Height 6' (1.83 m) Career Ralph Fiennes trained at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art and then joined the Royal Shakespeare Company in 1988. He is the only actor ever to have won a Tony Award for playing Hamlet on Broadway. In 2001, Fiennes received the William Shakespeare Award from the Shakespeare Theatre in Washington, D.C.. Fiennes made his film debut in 1992 as Heathcliff in Wuthering Heights opposite Juliette Binoche. But it was in the following year that he became known internationally, portraying the amoral Nazi concentration camp commandant Amon Göth in Steven Spielberg's Schindler's List, for which he was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor. He did not win the Oscar, but he did win the Best Supporting Actor BAFTA Award for the role. In 1994, he portrayed American academic Charles Van Doren in Quiz Show, and in 1996, he was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Actor for the World War II epic romance The English Patient. Fiennes' work has ranged from thrillers (Red Dragon) to animated Biblical epic (The Prince of Egypt) to campy nostalgia (The Avengers) to romantic comedy (Maid in Manhattan) and offbeat dramedy (Oscar and Lucinda). In 2002, Fiennes and Miranda Richardson received critical acclaim for their performances in David Cronenberg's award-winning thriller Spider.[citation needed] In 2004, Fiennes was cast as Lord Voldemort in the fourth film of the Harry Potter series, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. The film was released in November 2005. Fiennes will reprise the role in its sequels. [citation needed] The Constant Gardener was released in 2005, with Fiennes as the title role. The film is set in the slums of Kibera and Loiyangalani, Kenya. The situation affected the crew to the extent that they set up the Constant Gardener Trust in order to provide basic education around these villages. Fiennes is a patron of the charity. His recent performance in the play Faith Healer gained him a nomination for a 2006 Tony Award. Personal life Born in 1962 in Suffolk, England to photographer Mark Fiennes and novelist Jennifer Lash, Ralph Fiennes is a third-cousin of the adventurer Sir Ranulph Fiennes. The eldest of six children, he was raised a Roman Catholic. The actor Joseph Fiennes (Shakespeare in Love, Luther) is his brother. His sister Martha works as a director (in her film Onegin, he acted the title role). His brother, Magnus Fiennes is a composer. His other sister, Sophie Fiennes is also a filmmaker. His other brother, Jacob Fiennes is a conservationist. His foster brother, Michael Emery, is an archaeologist. Fiennes is a UNICEF ambassador. The Fiennes family moved to Ireland in 1973, living in West Cork and County Kilkenny for some years, where Fiennes and his siblings were home schooled. They moved to Salisbury in England where Ralph finished his schooling at Bishop Wordsworth's School before attending Chelsea College of Art. He married actress Alex Kingston (Dr. Corday from ER) in 1993, but they divorced in 1997. In 1995, Fiennes started dating Francesca Annis, his much-older (18 years) co-star in Hamlet. In February 2006, the couple separated. This came after tabloid reports that said Fiennes had an affair with Romanian singer Cornelia Crisan. In late 2006, sources reported that Fiennes is dating American actress Ellen Barkin, who is eight years his senior. On February 11, 2007, Lisa Robertson, a Qantas flight attendant, was suspended and subsequently fired after allegedly having sex with Fiennes in a business class toilet during a flight from Darwin to Mumbai on January 24, 2007. Robertson admitted to the encounter in an interview with the Daily Mail." Fiennes has refused to comment on the matter. From Wikipedia
