British star of Sexy Beast and Noah to talk on stage about his screen career.
British tough-guy actor Ray Winstone is to discuss his craft and career at a BAFTA A Life In Pictures event on Oct 5. The event will take place at BAFTA’s headquarters in London’s Piccadilly.
Winstone’s association with BAFTA goes back to 1980 when he was nominated for Most Promising Newcomer for one of his earliest roles in drama That Summer!.
The actor first made an impact in 1977 playing a young offender in the controversial television drama Scum. He went on to star in British cult classics Quadrophenia, Nil By Mouth (for which he received his second BAFTA nomination), The War Zone and Sexy Beast.
The past decade has seen Winstone star in Hollywood blockbusters including The Departed, Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull, Beowolf and more recently Darren Aronofsky’s Noah.
His TV work has included BAFTA-winning Great Expectations, Emmy-winning Henry VIII and Births, Marriages and Deaths. In 2006, Winstone won an Emmy for Best Performance for his lead role in ITV’s Vincent.
His forthcoming roles include The Gunman, alongside Idris Elba and Sean Penn, and The Legend of Barney Thomson, co-starring with Robert Carlyle and Emma Thompson.
Other actors and filmmakers to take part in the Life in Pictures series have included Tom Hanks, Emma Thompson, Jim Broadbent, Dustin Hoffman, Martin Scorsese, Quentin Tarantino, Meryl Streep, Cate Blanchett, Kenneth Branagh and Helen Mirren.
Tickets will be available here - www.bafta.org/whats-on - from Sept 10 for BAFTA members and Sept 12 for the public.
