Persistently striving to compile such a fabulous resume consisting of various excellent theatrical and screen stints, Paul Bettany successfully has carved his niche in the forefront of Hollywood film industry to keep shining through as one of the lauded thespians of his generation. Hailed from a family with strong artistic background, he was born on May 27, 1971 in a northwest London district called Harlesden to stage actor Thande Bettany and Anne Kettle, an aspiring singer whose primary job is a secretary at a drama school in England. Only spending nine years of his life there, the kid then was taken to settle in a village of Brookmans Park, Hertfordshire where he later grew up as a teen who initially seemed to have little ambition for anything aside from his large interest in music, which sharply contrasted with his lacking enthusiasm for school subjects. Fortunately, this unfocused life of his began to find its direction by the age of 19 when the blue-eyed guy entered London Drama Centre in Chalk Farm and unexpectedly found himself fell heavily into acting, just like his father had experienced before.
