About Colin Farrell (1976 –)

February 2, 2010...
Congratulations to Colin Farrell for his Best Actor Nomination
for his performance in A SINGLE MAN.


Colin Farrell was born on May 31, 1976, in Castleknock, Dublin, Ireland, the youngest of four children. He is the son of Irish football player, Eamon Farrell, and Rita Monagan, who gave her children the inspiration to be active in the arts, though it wasn't always appreciated at the time. Colin said in an interview, "Anything I am and anything I hope to be, I have my mom to thank."

When Colin's brother Emmon Farrell Jr, started dancing lessons, mother Rita forced Colin to take them also. When Emmon went to an acting school;Gaiety Drama School in Dublin, he invited Colin to go too. This experience got Colin in position to be bitten by the acting bug.

Colin Farrell eventually dropped out of the Gaiety Drama School in Dublin, but the urge had been planted to be an actor. Months later, Colin took the plunge and auditioned for a part in BALLYKISSANGEL; (1996), a BBC TV production, and was picked to be in the cast, playing the part of Danny Byrne, for the 1998-1999 seasons.

Colin went on to establish himself as a major talent back home, with not only a starring role in BALLYKISSANGEL, but also being cast for FALLING FOR A DANCER; (1998 – TV).

While his next three films weren't deemed to be hits, they provided Colin with opportunities to get his foot in the door. By the age of 25, Colin Farrell became one of Hollywood's "A-list" young actors.

Director Joe Schumacher cast Colin in TIGERLAND;(2000). This film was praised by the critics but flopped at the box office. In 2001, Colin played Jesse James in the western, AMERICAN OUTLAWS; another flop. In 2002, Colin co-starred with Bruce Willis in HART'S WAR; yet another laid egg.

Yet, Colin's star was rising, and the rest of 2002 was bright and successful. Colin Farrells' first smash hit at the box office and with the critics alike was MINORITY REPORT;(2002). Also in 2002, Colin was cast in another of Joe Schumacher's film, PHONE BOOTH; another big hit. Colin was on a roll in his career!

DAREDEVIL;(2003), marked the first time Colin Farrell used his own Irish accent in an American movie.

Colin Farrell says that during his growing up years, one of his childhood idols was Al Pacino. He got the chance to work opposite his hero in THE RECRUIT; (2003). This was an experience that he described as "scary as hell to work opposite a legend," even though he says Pacino was one of the kindest men he'd ever met and says they still hang out together.

Farrell was ranked #98 in Premiere's 2003 annual Power 100 List. It was Colin's first appearance on the list. Colin Farrell was named one of People Magazine's 50 Most Beautiful People in 2003.

In 2009, Colin Farrell won a Golden Globe and a British Independent film award for his performance in the black comedy film, BRUGES.

In 2010, Colin racked up a bunch of nominations for his leading role in the film, A SINGLE MAN. He was nominated for Best Actor by the Academy Awards, Golden Globe Awards, and Screen Actors Guild Awards and won the Best Actor award from BAFTA Awards.
