Acting My Life Summary
Over the last fifty years, Ian Holm has become one of the most respected actors of his generation. From his brilliant debut with the RSC in the 1960s, he has gone on to work with Harold Pinter and appeared in such cult and popular films as "Alien", "Chariots of Fire", "The Fifth Element" and "Lord of the Rings". His varied career spans stage, screen, television and radio. Now, he has written his autobiography. It is a compelling, personal story that takes in over half a century of acting, but also his colourful personal life - growing up next to the mental asylum run by his father, the women in his life, his on-stage breakdown (which led to a prolonged absence from the stage), and his battle with cancer. "Acting My Life" is both honest and touching. His one lifelong commitment has been to his acting, and that same intensity is now brought to his writing.
