About Kenneth Branagh
Kenneth Charles Branagh was born on December 10, 1960, in Belfast, Northern Ireland, to parents William Branagh, a plumber and carpenter, and Frances (Harper), both born in 1930.
He has two siblings, William Branagh, Jr. (born 1955) and Joyce Branagh (born 1970). When he was nine, his family escaped The Troubles by moving to Reading, Berkshire, England. At 23, Branagh joined the Royal Shakespeare Company. There he took on starring roles in “Henry V” and “Romeo and Juliet”. He soon found the RSC too large and impersonal and formed his own, the Renaissance Theatre Company.
At 29, he directed Henry V (1989), where he also co-starred with his then-wife, Emma Thompson. The film brought him Best Actor and Best Director Oscar nominations. In 1993, he brought Shakespeare to mainstream audiences again with his hit adaptation of Much Ado About Nothing (1993). This featured an all-star cast that included, among others, Denzel Washington, Michael Keaton and Keanu Reeves.
At 30, he published his autobiography. At 34, he directed and starred as “Victor Frankenstein” in the big-budget adaptation of Mary Shelley’s novel, Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein (1994), with Robert De Niro as the monster himself. In 1996, Branagh wrote, directed and starred in a lavish adaptation of Hamlet (1996).
