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.

This is a fantastic source for information on the Daniel's career milestones. I loved the intrigue and details included about the projects he choose to do. unfortunately, because Daniel guard his privacy so much, the author didn't fill in a lot of gaps due to lack of info available. In any case, if you love this phenomenon called "Daniel Day Lewis", you will find this book satisfying to your appetite to learn more about his world.
