Actor Daniel Day-Lewis is considered one of the greatest actors of his generation. With three Oscar wins, the actor is known for Lincoln, There Will Be Blood, My Left Foot, Gangs of New York, and Last of the Mohicans is calling it quits.

Day-Lewis has been consistently praised for his shape-shifting versatility. As a method actor, he’s also known for going to extreme lengths for a role. He’s also done musicals, action films, and period dramas.

Despite always being in high demand, the actor is known for being a recluse. In the late 1990s, there’s a rumor Day-Lewis was working as a show cobbler when Martin Scorsese convinced him to return to Hollywood for Gangs of New York.

Method Actor Willing To Do It All

Variety reports:

“The method master once learned Czech to play a philandering doctor in “The Unbearable Lightness of Being,” listened to Eminem records to channel rage in “Gangs of New York,” and confined himself to a wheelchair for “My Left Foot” to play Brown, who had cerebral palsy. Day-Lewis, who is the son of poet Cecil Day-Lewis and English actress Jill Balcon, made his screen debut at the age of 14 in a bit part in 1971’s “Sunday, Bloody Sunday.”

“He first gained attention on the stage and on television before dazzling critics in 1985 with the one-two punch of “My Beautiful Laundrette” and “A Room With a View,” convincingly playing a street tough and an upper class Edwardian.”

CNN reports:

“Spanning nearly four decades, Day-Lewis’ career has touched an audience that transcends any one generation. The young actor began on stage in mainly Shakespeare plays before making his first credited film appearance in the 1982 rendition of “Gandhi.” After winning his Academy Award for “Lincoln,” he officially made history as the first man to win three Best Actor Oscars.”
