RAY WINSTONE (Moe Fitch) was recently seen in the title role of "Beowulf," the groundbreaking motion-capture action film directed by Robert Zemeckis. Prior to that, he appeared in Martin Scorsese's Oscar-winning drama "The Departed" and in Anthony Minghella's "Breaking and Entering," opposite Jude Law and Juliette Binoche.
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 produced as a BBC play but was banned for its brutally violent content. Later remade as a feature film, "Scum" launched Winstone's career. His subsequent credits include "Quadrophenia," "Ladybird, Ladybird," "Face," "The Sea Change," "The Very Thought of You," "Agnes Brown" and "Fanny and Elvis." His more recent films include Anthony Minghella's "Cold Mountain" and Antoine Fuqua's "King Arthur." Additionally, he was the voice of Mr. Beaver in the fantasy blockbuster "The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe."
He has also worked extensively in television, starring in series and made-for-television movies. His credits include the title roles in the British tele-films "Henry VIII" and "Sweeney Todd."
This summer, Winstone will be seen starring opposite Harrison Ford and Shia LaBeouf in the eagerly anticipated "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull," Steven Spielberg's fourth installment of the popular Indiana Jones series.
