British distinguished actor of film and stage. Quitting his university education after one year with an ambition to act, he made a noted performance in "Four Weddings and a Funeral,"1994, establishing himself as a major player. After years of celebrated performances, known for great energy, sharp intellect and ruthlessness, he has done voice-over ("James and the Giant Peach") and films such as "Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls." Callow has penned biographies on Charles Laughton and Orson Welles, and is the author of his autobiography, "Being an Actor," 1995.

An only child in an all-female household, he was raised by an intellectually ambitious mother. Openly gay, Callow was one of the first British actors to publicly announce his preference.
