Born in North Yorkshire, Sir Ben Kingsley's career is littered with infamous stage and film performances. He is globally famous for his role as Mohandas Gandhi in the Academy Award winning film Gandhi in 1982 when he won the Academy Award for Best Actor for his portrayal. In 1993 he starred in award-winning Schindler's List. He also starred alongside Leonardo DiCaprio in the Scorsese movie, Shutter Island in 2010.
Sir Ben played villian 'The Mandarin' in Iron Man 3, which took an estimated $195.3 in it's opening weekend. Marvel studio head Kevin Feige said of Sir Ben, “On his last take of his first full day as The Mandarin, when they yelled ‘Cut!’ the entire crew burst into applause, spearheaded by Mr. Downey himself…It was pretty amazing to see that".
He was named a Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE) in 2000. He was made a knight bachelor in the 2002 New Year's Honours (the award was announced on 31 December 2001, which happened to be his 58th birthday). Sir Ben is truly a great National Treasure!
