Adrien Brody is an American actor and producer. He later received widespread recognition and acclaim after starring in Roman Polanski’s The Pianist (2002), for which he won the Academy Award for Best Actor at age twenty-nine, which made him the youngest actor to win in that category.
As a child, Brody performed magic shows at children’s birthday parties as “The Amazing Adrien”. He attended I.S. 145 Joseph Pulitzer Middle School and New York’s Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts. His parents enrolled him in acting classes to distance him from the dangerous children with whom he associated. He then attended summer camp at Long Lake Camp for the Arts in the Adirondacks in upstate New York. Brody attended Stony Brook University before transferring to Queens College for a semester.
Other films that Brody has starred in are The Thin Red Line (1998), The Village (2004), King Kong (2005), and Predators (2010). He is a frequent collaborator of Wes Anderson’s, having starred in four of Anderson’s films, The Darjeeling Limited (2007), Fantastic Mr. Fox (2009), The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014), and The French Dispatch (2020).
In 2017, he appeared in the fourth series of the BBC period crime drama Peaky Blinders.
