Adrien Brody
Name : Adrien Brody
Height : 6' 1½" (185 cm)
Date of Birth : 14 April 1973
Place of Birth : New York, New York, USA
 
Biography:
 
Born on 14 April 1973 in New York City, Brody was raised in Queens. The son of a schoolteacher and a celebrated photojournalist, he was drawn to acting from an early age. Brody's first taste of show business came when he was 12 years old and performed as a magician at children's parties. With his mother's encouragement, he subsequently enrolled in acting classes, attending both the American Academy of Dramatic Arts and the High School for the Performing Arts. He found his earliest work in off Broadway productions, and made his television debut in 1998 with a PBS movie and a turn as Mary Tyler Moore's son in the comedienne's ill-fated sitcom Annie McGuire.

Despite roles in two high profile movies - The Thin Red Line (1998) and Summer of Sam (1999), it was not until Brody was cast as the eponymous protagonist in The Pianist that critics and the Academy really took notice of his work. For his portrayal of the real life Wladyslaw Szpilman, a Polish pianist struggling to survive the Holocaust in the Warsaw Ghetto, Brody invested himself mentally, emotionally, and physically in the role, and was rewarded for his dedication with numerous honors, including the French César and an Oscar that made him the youngest ever recipient of the Best Actor award.
