Regarded by many as the finest actor of his generation, Daniel Day-Lewis has become one of Hollywood's most bankable stars. His diverse performances in roles such as cerebral palsy sufferer Christy Brown in My Left Foot and Butcher Bill in Gangs of New York have cemented his reputation as a chameleon method actor. Yet behind the on-screen personas and theatrical masks lies a complex figure about whom relatively little is really known. Acclaimed biographer Laura Jackson has spoken to many close friends of the actor, including Dame Judi Dench and Simon Callow, and has provided us with a fascinating insight into this intense and talented star. As well as a wonderful portrait of his creative life, this book also reveals Day-Lewis's past relationships with his co-stars and how he has found happiness with Arthur Miller's daughter Rebecca. There are very few books about this reclusive and chameleon-like actor despite his award winning film roles and ever increasingly popularity. His new Oscar & Bafta nominated movie Lincoln is scheduled for UK release early 2013.
