THE MAN IN THE IRON MASK

At 23 years of age, LEONARDO DICAPRIO (King Louis XIV/Philippe) has developed into one of his generation's most gifted and versatile talents. DiCaprio most recently starred as Jack Dawson opposite Kate Winslet in James Cameron's international blockbuster Titanic.

DiCaprio earned an Academy Award® nomination for Best Supporting Actor at 19 for his portrayal of an ebullient, mentally impaired youngster in What's Eating Gilbert Grape? His performance also garnered awards from the National Board of Review, Chicago Film Critics and the Los Angeles Film Critics, as well as a Golden Globe nomination.

DiCaprio rose to national attention in his role opposite Robert De Niro and Ellen Barkin in This Boy's Life and has subsequently appeared in a variety of features, from the western The Quick and the Dead, with Sharon Stone and Gene Hackman, to The Basketball Diaries, a harrowing account of a young man's spiral into heroin addiction, to Total Eclipse, in which he starred as the poet Rimbaud opposite David Thewlis.

In 1996, he starred with Claire Danes in the critically acclaimed modern adaptation of William Shakespeare's Romeo + Juliet, as well as the screen adaptation of the successful play Marvin's Room, opposite Meryl Streep and Diane Keaton.

A native of Los Angeles, DiCaprio began his acting career at age 14, appearing in commercials and educational films. He soon moved into parts on episodic television, including a role on Growing Pains in the popular series' last season. He also appeared in the short film The Foot Shooting Party, released by Touchstone Pictures.

DiCaprio will next appear in Woody Allen's latest project, slated for release in 1998.
