ben kingsley gandhi best actor royal shakespeare company rsc

Ben Kingsley

Best known for his Academy Award-winning portrayal of "Gandhi" (1982), British-born Ben Kingsley has made a specialty of playing historical characters.
At 19 Kingsley saw Ian Holm in Richard III at the Royal Shakespeare Company.

This triggered his decision to become an actor. He was accepted into the RSC in 1967.
Ben Kingsley has played characters from Gandhi to from Shostakovich ("Testimony" 1987) to Meyer Lansky ("Bugsy" 1991), his Indian and Russian Jewish roots providing the seemingly incompatible genetic credentials for all three, as well as for other exotic roles (i.e., an Arab prince in "Harem" 1985, a Turk in "Pascali's Island" 1988). Often asked to carry the moral weight of films, he has also excelled in more atypical turns as the smarmy bad guy in "Sneakers" (1992). A prolific actor Ben Kingsley has already contributed to five films due out from 2008 to 2010 notably the remake of Hitchcock's 'Number 13'

Ben Kingsley Film: "Gandhi"

Ben Kingsley is magnificent as Gandhi (Best Actor Oscar for Ben Kingsley) as he changes over the course of the three-hour film from an insignificant lawyer to an international leader and symbol. Strong on history (the historic division between India and Pakistan, still a huge problem today, can be seen in its formative stages here) as well as character and ideas, this is a fine film.
