About Adrien Brody (1973 - )

Adrien Brody was born on April 14, 1973. He is the only child of Hungarian-born photojournalist Sylvia Plachy, whose family fled Communist Hungary, in 1956. Adrien's father is Elliot Brody, a now retired history teacher. Elliot grew up in a Polish-Jewish family in New York. He lost family members in Poland in the concentration camps, during WW2.

Adrien's acting talent appeared at a young age. By thirteen, Adrien had appeared in his first off-Broadway production, a PBS-TV movie special. He was a student of the American Academy of Dramatic Arts and graduated from New York's High School for the Performing Arts.

Adrien had 13 films under his belt by his 25th birthday.

When Roman Polanski asked him to play Wladislaw Szpilman, Adrien put his all into preparing for the part. Adrien Brody learned to play Chopin, gave up basic things like his car and apartment. He lost 30 pounds, in an attempt to really feel the hurt and despair of the Polish Jews. His own relatives had suffered so much at the hands of the Germans, during this time. Mr. Brody went into The Pianist production with this mindset, was a grand springboard into his brilliant performance, which won Adrien Brody the Oscar.
