Ralph Nathaniel Twisleton-Wykeham-Fiennes, popularly known as Ralph Fiennes, is an English stage and film actor. He is well-known in the British theatre circle for his love for Shakespearean dramas and enactment of characters like ‘Hamlet,’ ‘Coriolanus,’ ‘Richard II,’ etc. He made his directorial debut with ‘Coriolanus,’ yet again exhibiting his love for literary characters, especially that of Shakespeare’s. Fiennes started off his acting career in London, and was associated with theatres like ‘Open Air Theatre’ and ‘National Theatre.’ He ventured into movies with his dark and dense characterization of Bronte’s ‘Heathcliff’ in ‘Wuthering Heights.’ Although the movie did fairly well, it could not get him the international fame that he deserved. However, Spielberg’s Jewish massacre drama ‘Schindler’s List’ forced the filmmakers across the world to take notice. His memorable portrayal of the devilishly desensitized ‘Amon Goth’ earned him international acclaim as well as many prestigious awards, including ‘BAFTA’ and ‘Golden Globe.’ Fiennes is an accomplished actor who has played a variety of roles in genres like thriller, drama, animation, romantic-comedy, etc.
