Ben Kingsley
Ben Kingsley
Birthday: Dec 31, 1943
Place of Birth: Scarborough, Yorkshire, England, UK

Chameleon-like British actor Ben Kingsley has proven he can play just about anyone, from Nazi war criminals to Jewish Holocaust survivors to quiet British bookshop owners. For many viewers, however, he will always be inextricably linked with his title role in Gandhi, a film that won him an Oscar and the undying respect of critics and filmgoers alike.
