Happy Birthday: Michael Fassbender

Published

on

On the 2nd of April, actor Michael Fassbender celebrates his birthday.

Born in Germany, but raised in Ireland, Fassbender grew up speaking both English and German, but these days he’s a bit rusty with the language.

He decided that he wanted to be an actor at age 17 when he was cast in a play by Donald Courtney.

Michael moved to London at the age of 19 to study at the Drama Centre London. However, he later dropped out to go on tour with the Oxford Stage Company to perform the play ‘Three Sisters’. But his feature film debut was in the fantasy war epic ‘300’ (2007) as a Spartan warrior.

The daring actor somehow manages to bounce back and forth between crowd-pleasing features like ‘Prometheus’ and the ‘X-Men’ franchise, and intense dramas, such as the films he’s made with his close friend, the independent auteur Steve McQueen. The two have collaborated on ‘Hunger’, ‘Shame’ and ’12 Years a Slave’, which earned Oscar nominations for both the star and his director, and went on to win Best Picture in 2014. Michael also returned to the ceremony in 2016, nominated for ‘Steve Jobs’. This is what distinguishes him from other movie stars; he is more of an artist.

We saw him last year as ‘Cook’ in movie ‘Song to Song’ and ‘Harry Hole’ in the movie ‘The Snowman’.

Michael married Swedish actress Alicia Vikander, whom he met on the set of ‘The Light Between Oceans’, in a private ceremony on 14 October 2017 in Ibiza, Spain. They had been dating since December 2014. Currently, they live together in Lisbon, Portugal.
