Brit of the Week

Bill Nighy (Dec. 12, 1949) was born in Surrey to a Scottish mother and English/Irish father. He trained at the Guildford School of Acting. He began his career in the theater, doing plays like 'Illuminatus'. He starred in many radio and television dramas, but really made his mark in 1991's "The Men's Room". He had some success in films like "Still Crazy" and "People Like Us", but it was 2003's "Underworld" which put him on the acting map. Since then he has starred in films like "Shawn of the Dead", "Love Actually" (for which he won the Best Supporting BAFTA award), "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest", and "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1". Next up for him, "Wrath of the Titans" (with Sam Worthington, Liam Neeson, and "Ralph Fiennes) and "Jack the Giant Killer" (with Ewan McGregor and Stanley Tucci).
