Guy Pearce is an English-born, Australian-raised talented actor that has managed to amaze, entertain and surprise the movie-goers with the interesting choices he has made. He has played villains, good guys and grey characters. He has changed his appearance according to roles almost as much as Gary Oldman, and at 45, he is a wildy-known, Emmy-winning character actor/leading actor who has willingly avoided the celebrity status.

6)      His male co-stars include Hugo Weaving, Colin Firth, Geoffrey Rush (The King’s Speech) Timothy Spall (Death Defying Acts), Peter Stormare (Lockout), Joe Pantoliano, (Memento), Michael Fassbender (Prometheus), Russell Crowe, Kevin Spacey, Danny De Vito (L.A.

Till Human Voices Wake Us is a drama/romance with a psychological aspect and Bonham Carter is his mysterious love interest.

10)  His most known role is his performance in the cult Christopher Nolan movie where he plays a guy whose memory resets after 4 minutes so he cannot sustain any new memory for more than 4 minutes while he remembers the past vividly. Unfor.tunately, the past he remembers includes a man killing his wife and him determined to take revenge while keeping himself in the loop with the tattoos and notes he makes.

The most impressive thing about the movie however is not the story, however. The movie starts from the end and flows to the beginning, so it requires a lot of attention from the movie-goer. It is rated 8.6 on IMDB and currently at 79 on the best 250 movies list. The DVD also features the from the beginning-to-the-end version of the movie as well.

11)  Guy Pearce lives in Australia.
