About Daniel Day-Lewis (1957 – )

Daniel Day-Lewis is a Londoner from an artistic family that includes a film producer, a documentary filmmaker and a poet laureate. Lewis began his acting career on the London stage. Not until the '80s did he turn his talents to the cinema.

He is the only actor to win three Best Actor Oscars.

He first came to notice in the 1984 drama THE BOUNTY, as a member of the mutinous crew. In MY BEAUTIFUL LAUNDRETTE (1985), he played the lover of a man involved in a nefarious family businesses.

He played the bloodless, overly-starched fiancé of protagonist Helena Bonham Carter in A ROOM WITH A VIEW. The film tells the story of a passionate young woman's search for her true self and happiness in Victorian England.

In 1989, Daniel Day-Lewis won an Academy Award for Best Actor for his portrayal of a sensitive, disabled man who learned to paint and type with his left foot. In the 1992 drama, based on the James Fenimore Cooper novel, THE LAST OF THE MOHICANS, Daniel Day-Lewis plays a man raised by a Mohican tribe, that was caught in bitter warfare between French and Indian forces.

Daniel Day-Lewis plays New York gangster Bill "The Butcher" Cutting, the demented villain of the 2002 crime drama GANGS OF NEW YORK.

In THERE WILL BE BLOOD (2007), he played Daniel Plainview, a man obsessed with oil and wealth. His character attempts to hide his true motives as he bleeds an early 20th century California town dry. He won his second BEST ACTOR Academy Award for his performance.

Day-Lewis played Abraham Lincoln in Steven Spielberg's film LINCOLN (2012). He spent a year in preparation for the role, read over 100 books on Lincoln, and long worked with the makeup artist to achieve a physical likeness to Lincoln. Lincoln won many positive critical reviews, much of it directed toward Day-Lewis's performance. It was also a commercial success, grossing over $275 million worldwide.

After a five year hiatus, Day-Lewis returned to the screen to star in the Paul Thomas Anderson historical drama PHANTOM THREAD in December 2017. Set in 1950s London, Day-Lewis plays obsessive dressmaker Reynolds Woodcock, who falls in love with a waitress, played by Vicky Krieps. Prior to the film's release, Day-Lewis' spokeswoman, Leslee Dart, announced that he would be retiring from acting. Day-Lewis was nominated for a Best Actor Oscar a final time for his performance in PHANTOM THREAD, but was bested by Gary Oldman, who portrayed British Prime Minister Winston Churchill in DARKEST HOUR.
