DEV PATEL BIOGRAPHY
Born to Indian parents, both of whom grew up in the Hindu community of Nairobi in Kenya, and later met in England, Dev Patel he is a rather lively child, so much so that he is directed towards a sporting activity that allows a “discharge” of energy. At the age of ten he began attending a course in Taekwon-do which leads him to compete at a competitive level in numerous tournaments, reaching the 1st dan black belt in just six years, in 2006. That energy also leads him to express himself creatively in school theater courses, receiving the applause of teachers.
The mother is the only one who sees us for a long time. In a newspaper he finds the announcement of a casting for a TV series and does not hesitate to bring us his son, even though we have a science exam the next day. Patel leaves its mark, is recalled for a second audition and finally signed. Indeed, it is his own personality that leads the authors to rewrite the character of Anwar Kharral modeling it on him. The series is titled Skins, tells of a group of British teenagers who prove to be smarter than the adults around them and, above all, win some awards that extend their existence to the second season.
The visibility that Dev Patel earn is enough to make him end up in a casting of a very important film. An actor is being sought for the lead role in a comedy-drama based on the book The twelve questions of Vikas Swarup. There is to direct it Danny Boyle and it is the seventeen-year-old daughter of the director who points out to her father this boy from the Skins series that he could be perfect. The title of the film Slumdog Millionaire (The Millionaire in Italian). Luck and talent enable a Patel to surpass hundreds of nominees and to make his film debut in a film that is destined to win well 8 Academy Awards. It is 2008 and on the set of the film he knows Freida Pinto, his artistic partner who also becomes a partner in private life until the two separate after six years together, in 2014.
From his uncertain future, he went in a flash to be a highly sought-after leading actor, thanks also to the popularity he acquired and the many awards received for that role, including a BAFTA Award. The first post-Millionaire film is The ultimate airbender, considered by many to be the worst movie of M. Night Shyamalan, although it is undoubtedly a commercial success. Patel receives a nomination ai Razzies Award as worst actor of the year, but the same critics who destroy the film save his performance. Later he is in the choral cast of Marigold Hotel, together with the big names of British cinema, in a role that requires him to take lessons to improve the Indian accent, his English being very British.
Between 2012 and 2014 he starred in the TV series The Newsroom, in the drama About Cherry and in the road movie The Road Within where he plays a guy with OCD. In 2015 it does Return to the Marigold Hotel before acting alongside Hugh Jackman in Humandroid. The following film commits him a lot, not only for the caliber of the supporting actor with whom he shares the scene. In The man who saw infinity the actor embodies the Indian mathematician Srinivasa Ramanujan who was born in poverty in India, but was able to enter Cambridge University thanks to his skills and his mentor, a British professor played by Jeremy Irons.
His professional career reaches its peak thanks to another biopic.
