Despite his traditional actor training at the Bristol Old Vic, he is considered to be a method actor, known for his constant devotion to and research of his roles. He often remains completely in character for the duration of the shooting schedules of his films, even to the point of adversely affecting his health. He is known as one of the most selective actors in the film industry, having starred in only five films since 1998, with as many as five years between roles.
One of the most acclaimed actors of his generation, his work has earned numerous awards, including five nominations for the Academy Award for Best Actor, in which he won three times, respectively, for his portrayals of Christy Brown in My Left Foot(1989), Daniel Plainview in There Will Be Blood (2007), and Abraham Lincoln in Lincoln (2012), a feat which makes him the only male actor in history to garner three wins in the leading category.
He had a son, Gabriel Kane (born 9 April 1995, N-Y) with French actress Isabelle Adjani.
