REIGN OF FIRE
Named by Entertainment
Weekly as one of the "Most Creative People in Entertainment," by
Premiere Magazine as one of the "Hottest Leading Men Under 30," and by
Interview Magazine as one of the "Most Wanted Actors of the new
Millennium," CHRISTIAN BALE's
(Quinn) decade-plus career
spans a variety and versatility unique for a 28-year-old actor. Audiences were
first introduced to Christian when he starred in Steven Spielberg's WWII epic,
"Empire of the Sun." His performance scored a National Board of Review
award. Christian went on to break hearts around the world opposite Winona Ryder
in the American classic, "Little Women," and garnered praise for a
number of memorable performances, including: Jane Campion's "The Portrait
of a Lady"; Todd Haynes' glam rock epic, "Velvet Goldmine"; as
Jesus Christ in Eunice Kennedy Shriver's
NBC telefilm, "Mary, Mother of Jesus"; and as a misguided suitor
opposite Calista Flockhart in "A Midsummer Night's Dream." Critics
were unanimous in their acclaim for Christian's gruesomely comic turn, starring
in the controversial "American Psycho." For his performance as the
fashion-conscious serial killer, Christian earned Best Actor nominations from
the London Film Critics Circle, Empire
Magazine as well as from the Online Film Critics Society.
Christian next went
mano-a-mano with Samuel L. Jackson in the action thriller "Shaft." He
returned to heartthrob status as a hunky Greek fisherman in a tragic love
triangle with Nicolas Cage and Penelope Cruz in last summer's WWII romance,
This year, in addition to
"Reign of Fire," Christian stars in the futuristic action pic,
"Equilibrium," with Emily Watson and Taye Diggs for Dimension Films.
He has just completed shooting "Laurel Canyon," which co-stars Kate
Beckinsale and Frances McDormand and is directed by Lisa Cholodenko.
The handsome and
charismatic Welsh-born actor has also attracted one of the largest fandoms on
the Internet, which led Entertainment Weekly to declare Christian to be one of
the "most powerful cult figures of the past decade." He is also very
active supporting various animal rights causes and was recently named to the
Honorary Board of Directors of Ark Trust.
