Distinguished character actor PETE POSTLETHWAITE (The Keeper) received his first Oscar® nomination for his role as Daniel Day-Lewis's father in the film, "In the Name Of The Father” in 1993. The British-born actor followed that up with the films "The Usual Suspects,” "The Last of the Mohicans,” "Brassed Off,” "Amistad,” "The Lost World: Jurassic Park,” and "The Shipping News,” as well as the recent "Dark Water” and "The Constant Gardener.”

Postlethwaite developed an interest in theatre while completing his college studies and became a drama teacher. Eventually, he decided to follow his acting instincts full time and begin building up an impressive list of stage credits including training at the Bristol Old Vic Drama School and stints with Liverpool Everyman, Manchester Royal Exchange and Royal Shakespeare Company. By the 1980s, he began working in television and film, capturing widespread attention with his mesmerizing performance as a abusive father in "Distant Voices, Still Lives” (1988).
