Always capable to evoke huge praise from either critics or audience with his brilliant portrayal in every role he takes that covers diverse range of human characters, Morgan Freeman arguably has made his way to be one of the most respected figures in modern U.S. cinema. Born on June 1, 1937 in Memphis, Tennessee, he came from a working class family which tried hard to maintain the life of the whole members that eventually included six children of five boys and a girl. In order to cover their increasing living cost, his parents then concluded to head for Chicago, Illinois to seek better opportunity in the city's factories and so put him under the care of his grandparents in Charleston, Mississippi. Spent most of his early life there while regularly went to the Windy City every summer to visit his mom and dad, the boy grew up as a reluctant student who did not enjoy school-time yet was heavily taken by the school's extra-curricular programs, particularly music and theater, even later also flourished the same great interest in cinematic field.
