MICHAEL FASSBENDER (Erik Lehnsherr), born in Germany, grew up in Killarney, Ireland, and studied and strained at the Drama Centre. Fassbender's breakthrough role came in the epic Steven Spielberg/Tom Hanks production, Band of Brothers. Fassbender's big screen debut was in director Zack Snyder's hugely successful 300, and offers for other film roles swiftly followed.

Fassbender's performance as Bobby Sands in Steve McQueen's Hunger won critical acclaim and, following the film's Camera D'Or winning premiere at Cannes in 2008, Fassbender scooped up numerous international festival awards. He went on to work with Quentin Tarantino on Inglourious Basterds, opposite Brad Pitt and Diane Kruger. Other credits include Francois Ozon's Angel, Joel Schumacher's Town Creek, James Watkin's Eden Lake, Neil Marshall's Centurion, and Jimmy Hayward's Jonah Hex.

Later this year, Fassbender will be seen as Carl Jung opposite Viggo Mortensen's Sigmund Freud in David Cronenberg's A Dangerous Method. In March 2011 he starred as Edward Rochester opposite Mia Wasikowska in Cary Fukunaga's Jane Eyre. He is currently before the cameras in Ridley Scott's original science fiction epic Prometheus.
