by John Singleton and starring Samuel L. Jackson (in which Bale plays the
villain), his recent starring roles were opposite Ewan McGregor in Todd Haynes'
VELVET GOLDMINE; opposite Emily Watson in METROLAND; and opposite John Hurt in
Jeremy Thomas' ALL THE LITTLE ANIMALS. He also appeared in A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S
DREAM with Kevin Kline, Michele Pfeiffer, and Calista Flockhart.
Born in Wales, Bale made his major film
debut starring in Steven Spielberg's epic EMPIRE OF THE SUN, then followed with
Kenneth Branagh's HENRY V, the cult musical NEWSIES and TREASURE ISLAND,
opposite Charlton Heston and Oliver Reed. Bale co-starred with Mel Gibson in the
Disney animated feature POCAHONTAS, then broke hearts around the world when he
starred with Winona Ryder in LITTLE WOMEN, and opposite Nicole Kidman in Jane
Campion's THE PORTRAIT OF A LADY. Bale continued to garner critical kudos for
his work in "Christopher Hampton's THE SECRET AGENT and other credits

and HEART OF THE COUNTRY for the BBC, "Anastasia: The Mystery of Anna"
