Tim Roth (Tim Roth)

Simon Tim Roth was born May 14, 1961 in London in a family of journalist and artist. father`s real name was Smith, but he changed it because of the "left" belief (although the family was far from being poor and living in a prestigious southern suburb of London).

The first performance on stage terribly from complexes about their appearance Tim was the role of Dracula in the school theater. How it successfully passed, history is silent. Tim entered the Kembervilskuyu School of Arts at the Department of Sculpture and probably would have gone in the footsteps of Rodin and Konenkov if it - Shaved 20-year-old neurotic - met just middle of the road directed by Alan Clarke, he immediately offered him the lead role in the film " made in Britain. " The tape was a success with critics and Mouth gained some notoriety. On the set of the next pattern "meanly time" (now the veteran director Mike Leigh), he met with Gary Oldman, who became his regular partner in the theater, and best friend. (How thin they Oldman each other feel, be seen in the film one of the best playwrights of our time Tom Stoppard`s "Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead".) In the 80s Tim Roth starred in Stephen Frears, Agnieszka Holland, Robert Altman, but wide popularity avoided it party.

Bountifully with Roth (and many others), Quentin Tarantino. Starring in the films "Reservoir Dogs," "Pulp Fiction" and "Four Rooms" (in the latter clearly manifested his extraordinary comic gift), Tim became the "face" of alternative cinema (and haute couture "of Prada" at home). Indeed, the more suitable candidate to impersonate alternative is hard to imagine. Refusing to even audition Spielberg, Roth starred in such films as "Animals" and "The dead end" (in his last partner was controversial rapper Tupac Shakur, who died before the film`s release). He imeetpyat tattoos; he listens to The Sex Pistols and Siouxsie and the Banshees; He gives interviews in the beer pubs; of the festivals he attends almost exclusively Sundance; his powerful directorial debut "War Zone", most likely, will not be allowed to run in the US because of the courage of subjects.

It appears that the sculptor Tim Roth cutter cuts off all the excess of his life.
