More About This Title Daniel Day Lewis


A look at the personal life and artistic accomplishments of the famously elusive actor

Regarded by many as the finest actor of his generation, Daniel Day-Lewis is one of Hollywood's most bankable stars. His diverse performances in roles such as cerebral palsy sufferer Christy Brown in My Left Foot and Butcher Bill in Gangs of New York have cemented his reputation as a chameleon method actor. Yet behind the on-screen personas and theatrical masks lies a complex figure about whom relatively little is really known. Acclaimed biographer Laura Jackson has spoken to many close friends of the actor, including Dame Judi Dench and Simon Callow, and has provided us with a fascinating insight into this intense and talented star.


Laura Jackson's other biographies include Bono, Jon Bon Jovi, Neil Diamond, Queen, and Steven Tyler.


"The insight into his preparation, choice of roles and motivations might serve well the budding actor looking for inspiration."  —Publishers Weekly
