Denzel Washington's About

[]

Denzel Washington is an Oscar-nominated actor, director, and producer who is best known for his roles in the films Glory, Malcolm X, and The Hurricane. He is well-known as an actor for his willingness to take on difficult parts and perform them well. Denzel had seen many of his friends turn to drugs, crime, and violence while growing up in a primarily African-American community. He is confident that if it hadn't been for his mother, a poor single mom, who sent him to Oakland Military Academy to learn discipline, he would have ended up like them. The young man finished high school and studied journalism before beginning on a professional acting career, determined to make something worthwhile of his life. When he was cast as Dr. Philip Chandler in the NBC medical drama series 'St. Elsewhere,' he earned his first major break. Before starring in Cry Freedom in 1987, he had a number of minor parts in films. He distinguished himself as a great character actor with his depiction of anti-apartheid social activist Steve Biko. More demanding parts followed, earning the actor seven Academy Award nominations, two of which he won. Jerry Bruckheimer, the producer, and Tony Scott, the filmmaker, were regular collaborators.
