Grant, Hugh

Grant, Hugh
   b. 1960, London
   Hugh Grant acted in his first film while still an undergraduate at Oxford, in the low-budget Privileged (1982). He had a gradual rise to stardom through television appearances and roles in films such as Maurice (1987), Bitter Moon (1992) and The Remains of the Day (1993). He became an international star through the lead role in the highly successful Four Weddings and a Funeral (1994). He followed this success with a string of films, including Sense and Sensibility (1995) Nine Months (1995) and Extreme Measures (1996). He has become known for playing variations on the stereotype of a upper-class, repressed Englishman, although he has become as notable for his off-screen exploits and his self-effacing wit as for his acting.
