Biography

Michael Caine was born and raised in South London. From 1952 to 1954, he did Army National Service in Germany and Korea. When he returned, he got a job as an assistant stage manager. This job led to walk-on theatre parts and TV roles. In 1960, he finally had his first stage hit in The Long And The Short And The Tall. Movie fame came later in Zulu in 1964. He has since gone on to star in over 80 movies. In 2000, he was knighted for his contribution to the performing arts.
