Alain Delon

Alain Delon (born November 8, 1935) is a French actor, one of the best known outside his native country.

Delon was born in Sceaux, France. His breakthrough as a film star came with Plein Soleil, a 1962 adaptation of Patricia Highsmith's Talented Mr Ripley. He also gave tremendous performances in Lucino Visconti's "The Leopard" and, perhaps his finest moment, "Le Samourai". His later work has not reached these hights, and his decline is characteristic of the nouvelle vague of French actors, such as Jean-Paul Belmondo.

After a string of box office disasters in the 1980s and 1990s, culminating in the unexpected failure of Patrice Leconte's film Une Chance sur deux, Alain Delon announced his decision to give up acting in 1997. In 1969, Delon and his wife were at the center of a massive scandal when their bodyguard was found shot dead in a garbage dump.

In 1969, Delon and his wife were at the center of a massive scandal when their bodyguard was found shot dead in a garbage dump. More recently, he has starred as senior MI5 officer Harry Pearce in the BBC's popular spy drama series Spooks (2002-present), and played Fred Hoyle in a BBC dramatisation of the early career of Stephen Hawking. After a string of box office disasters in the 1980s and 1990s, culminating in the unexpected failure of Patrice Leconte's film Une Chance sur deux, Alain Delon announced his decision to give up acting in 1997. Both of these were made as part of the BBC's famous Play for Today anthology drama strand. His later work has not reached these hights, and his decline is characteristic of the nouvelle vague of French actors, such as Jean-Paul Belmondo. In 1980 he starred as the eponymous time traveller in the BBC's feelgood science-fiction play The Flipside of Dominick Hide, and two years later starred in a sequel, Another Flip for Dominick. He also gave tremendous performances in Lucino Visconti's "The Leopard" and, perhaps his finest moment, "Le Samourai". In parallel to his film career, Firth has continued to appear in various television productions, with several notable credits in various high-profile dramas.

His breakthrough as a film star came with Plein Soleil, a 1962 adaptation of Patricia Highsmith's Talented Mr Ripley. Subsequent film work has included roles in The Hunt for Red October (1990) and Pearl Harbor (2001). Delon was born in Sceaux, France. Further film work quickly followed, most notably Roman Polanski's Tess (1979), an adaptation of Thomas Hardy's novel Tess of the D'Urbervilles. Alain Delon (born November 8, 1935) is a French actor, one of the best known outside his native country. The film was a success, and earned Firth a nomination for the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor and victory in the same category at the Golden Globe Awards. The following year, Firth starred in Equus, the film adaptation of the play in which he had starred on Broadway.

The adaptation was scripted by John Osborne and also starred Jeremy Brett and John Gielgud, becoming a major success with the critics. His first major role as an adult was in the title role in a 1976 BBC Television Play of the Month adaptation of Oscar Wilde's novel The Picture of Dorian Gray. In 1973, he appeared on stage in Peter Shaffer's Equus, playing a teenager being treated by a psychiatrist. Firth played Scooper, the leader of the gang.

Firth was a leading child actor by 1970, starring in the Double Deckers series, which was made in the USA but set in London and featured British children in the leading roles. Peter Firth (born October 27, 1953 in Bradford, Yorkshire, England, UK) is a British actor, well known for a variety of starring roles in film and on television from the 1970s to the 2000s.
