A leading cinematographer who began his career in association with director Ridley Scott, Adrian Biddle served as a camera assistant on Scott's first two features, "The Duellists" (1977) and "Alien" (1979), before establishing himself as a cinematographer on commercials. His first feature film as director of photography was James Cameron's slick, action-packed sequel, "Aliens" (1986), which he followed with the somewhat lighter, sun-dappled imagery of two charming, distinctive fantasy films, Rob Reiner's "The Princess Bride" (1987) and the George Lucas-Ron Howard adventure "Willow" (1988). For much of the 90s, Biddle alternated between sci-fi actioners ("Judge Dredd" 1995, "Event Horizon" 1997) and more character-driven pieces. He reteamed with Scott as cinematographer for the distaff road movie "Thelma and Louise" (1991) and provided the proper period lighting for Scott's otherwise disastrous "1492: The Conquest of Paradise" (1992). Biddle achieved the proper tones for the live-action version of "101 Dalmatians" (1996) and won particular praise for his superlative lensing of "The Butcher Boy" (1998).
