Ralph Fiennes * Mini Biography

Ralph FiennesRalph Nathaniel Twisleton-Wykeham-Fiennes, known simply as Ralph Fiennes (born 22 December 1962), is an English actor. He has appeared in films such as Schindler's List, The English Patient, In Bruges, The Constant Gardener, Maid in Manhattan and the Harry Potter films. Most recently he appeared in The Hurt Locker. Fiennes has won a Tony Award and has been nominated twice for Academy Awards. In 2001, Fiennes received the William Shakespeare Award from the Shakespeare Theatre in Washington, D.C.

Fiennes met actress Alex Kingston while both were students at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art. After dating for ten years, they married in 1993. However, they divorced in 1997. In 1995, Fiennes started dating Francesca Annis, an actress 18 years his senior, who played his mother in Hamlet. In February 2006 the couple separated after tabloid reports revealed that Fiennes had had an affair with Romanian singer Cornelia Crisan.

2007 Qantas flight

In February 2007, staff aboard a Qantas airline flight from Sydney, Australia to Mumbai, India caught the actor leaving the same aeroplane lavatory as 38-year-old flight attendant Lisa Robertson. At first denying any allegations of a mid-air tryst, Robertson later confessed to having unprotected sexual intercourse in the lavatory with Fiennes, whom she had met just hours before. Fiennes was en route to Mumbai, as a participant in AIDS awareness efforts for UNICEF. The organization retained Fiennes as an ambassador, but Qantas relieved Robertson of her duties who, allegedly, had intercourse with him again in the hotel where he was booked which, incidentally, was the Qantas crew's layover hotel in Mumbai.

Quotes from Ralph Fiennes

As an actor, there's a bit of you that's decided you want to be looked at and watched, but there's a paradoxical bit that wants to run away.

Gardeners are good at nurturing, and they have a great quality of patience, they're tender. They have to be persistent.

I certainly gained a lot by reading about Shanghai.

I couldn't get as big as a bodybuilder. I tried to put on as much weight in the right places as I could. My weightlifting was impressive for me, but not for some of the guys I see down at the gym.

I don't feel particularly comfortable about actors using whatever power they may have to push their beliefs, unless they're extremely well informed.

I don't plan a career. That doesn't work for me. I just have to go with my gut.

I have a lot of stuff I want to talk about and offer up. It would be odd not to have ideas about something.

I like to keep fit, but I never lift very heavy weights.

I respond to a part just intuitively when I read a script.

I veer away from trying to understand why I act. I just know I need to do it.

I was grateful to have two weeks to shoot this one scene in Harry Potter. It's a big, big scene, but they have to deliver. And they have high expectations.

I was only interested in my scene, and I had to go through thousands and thousands of other scenes. I got my scene and I read it many, many, many, many, many times. That was my research.

I'm sure acting is a deeply neurotic thing to do.

In the best material, you always should be able to somehow make a case for a story to be transposed to any other time.

In the studio system, things are expected of a film. By the first, second, third act, there's a generic language that comes out of the more commercial system.

It was just two energies between two people, you can't prescribe that.

Little moments can have a feeling and a texture that is very real.

One of the things that binds us as a family is a shared sense of humor.

A film depends on the audience's belief in this relationship.

The sets were fantastic. The Harry Potter sets are brilliant. You do get transported for a second.

There are those moments when you shake someone's hand, have a conversation with someone, and suddenly your all bound together because you share your humanity in one simple moment.

There's a challenge to playing these fantasy figures because they are fantasy figures. You have to enter into this sort of imaginative world of the writer.

There's a lot of people who feel there's a tabloid journalist who had it coming.

When she was younger, my mother was quite committed to Roman Catholicism. But she got disillusioned with it and moved closer to something like Buddhist beliefs near the end of her life. 

Within the process of filming, unexpected situations occur.

You feel yourself working to show something. I've learned to distrust that feeling.

You have to just dive over the edge. You haven't got time to mess about.

You're meant to be playing the distillation of evil, which can be anything.
