Personal Life

Ben Kingsley is a well-known British film and theater actor best known for his Oscar-winning role for “Ghandi”.

Krishna Bhanji was born on 31 December 1943 in the city of Sacrborough, located in the Yorkshire region of England.

His family was composed of his mother, Ann Lyna Mary Goodman, a model and actress of the time, and his father Rahitmulla Harji Bhanji, a clinician born in Kenya and of Hindu descent.

He grew up in the region of Pendelbury, in Salford, where his father was transferred. There it developed a certain taste by the action that was increased in the Manchester Grammar School, where it was enrolled in the theater group.

Without much thought, he attended the University of Salford to later travel to Lancashire. There he enrolled in the Pendleton Collage and met his first wife, Angela Morant. Together they married in 1966 to separate in 1972.

Career

By this time, Kingsley already acted in some well-known theater and plays until it had found its own local theater. It was around the end of the 1970s that he decided to change his name, since he feared that his Hindu heritage would play against him in the film industry.

In 1982, making his first appearance in a feature film, he received the Oscar for Best Actor for “Ghandi”, a biography of the mythical peace activist. This film also featured the performance of Martin Sheen, and was acclaimed across the globe.

The following year he appeared with Jeremy Irons in “Betrayal” and later starred in “Silas Marner”, one of the most emblematic novels in the history of England, in an adaptation made for television.

In 2004 he was a member of the commercial failure of “Suspect 0”, along with Aaron Eckhart and Carrie Anne Moss. The feature film did not cover half of its cost of production, $ 27 million, so Paramount had to settle multi-million dollar accounts.

Regardless of this, Kingsley continued his prominent career, working with Edward Burns in the sci-fi thriller “A Sound of Thunder,” slightly based on Ray Bradbury’s tale.

Later it was involved in the filming of the adaptation of the videogame “BloodRayne”, that deals with vampires and an implacable huntress that does not have pity before anything. Unfortunately the feature left the fans very unhappy.

He also lent his voice to the recordings of “The Ten Commandments,” an animated film with the voice of Christian Slater as Moses, and Alfred Molina in the role of Pharaoh Ramses.
