Who is Guy Pearce?
Guy Pearce is an English-born Australian actor best known for his leading role in Memento (2000), directed by Christopher Nolan. He was born to a New Zealander father and an English mother in Cambridgeshire. They moved to Australia when he was young, where his father served as a chief test pilot for the Australian government. Guy’s father was killed five years later in an aircraft test flight, which left his mother, who worked as a schoolteacher, to raise him and his older sister, Tracy.
Growing up, he gravitated to art, drama, and music, and he joined local theatre groups. He got a role on a popular Australian soap opera in 1985, just two days before his final high school exam. Guy then made his film debut in 1990 on Heaven Tonight. He would go on to make his mark in film with performances in L.A. Confidential (1997), Memento (2000), The Proposition (2005), Factory Girl (2006), The Hurt Locker (2008), The King's Speech (2010) and HBO mini-series, Mildred Pierce (2011).
Guy retains a lifelong love for music and song writing. He lives in Melbourne, Australia, and is known to keep his personal life separate from his acting career.
