BEOWULF

RAY WINSTONE (Beowulf) was recently seen in Martin Scorsese's Oscar®- winning drama "The Departed” and Anthony Minghella's "Breaking and Entering” opposite Jude Law and Juliette Binoche. Upcoming films include Steven Spielberg's fourth installment of "Indiana Jones” opposite Harrison Ford and Shia LaBeouf and John Hillcoat's comedy "Death of a Ladies Man” written by Nick Cave.

Winstone won a 1998 British Independent Film Award for Best Actor and earned a BAFTA Award nomination for his performance in Gary Oldman's "Nil By Mouth.” The following year, he earned another British Independent Film nomination for his work in Tim Roth's drama "The War Zone.” He received his third British Independent Film Award nomination for Best Actor for his work in "Sexy Beast.” Additionally, he shared a National Board of Review Award for Best Ensemble for the 2001 film "Last Orders.” Winstone earned an Australian Film Institute Award nomination for Best Actor for his work in "The Proposition.”

Born in Hackney in the East End of London, Winstone was a champion boxer in school and fought twice for England. He studied acting at the Corona School before director Alan Clarke cast him in the controversial project "Scum,” which was originally made as a BBC play but was banned for its brutally violent content. Later remade as a feature film, "Scum” launched Winstone's career. Subsequent film credits include "Quadrophenia,” "Ladybird, Ladybird,” "Face,” "The Sea Change,” "The Very Thought of You,” "Agnes Brown” and "Fanny and Elvis.” More recent films include Anthony Minghella's "Cold Mountain” and Antoine Fuqua's "King Arthur.” He was the voice of Mr. Beaver in the fantasy blockbuster "The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.”

Winstone has also worked extensively in television, starring in series and television movies. His credits include the title roles in the British tele-films "Henry VIII” and "Sweeney Todd.”
