David Jude Heyworth Law was born in 1972 in Lewisham, London, the son of teachers. Already in 1987 he discovered acting, making a commitment in theater with National Youth Music Theater. For a role in Les Parents Terribles of Cocteau, staged on the West End, is cashing in already now a Laurence Oliver Awards nomination. Just this piece, translated into English with Indiscretions, makes it known in America in 1995, where it will conquer a Tony Award nomination.
After various appearances on TV, however, he has already pointed out at the cinema in 1994, in the cast of Shopping, where is a little London thug; here he meets his future wife Sadie Frost, whom he will marry in 1997 and from whom he will divorce in 2003.
Just in 1997 Jude begins to become a star: is the lover of Oscar Wilde – Stephen Fry in Wilde, as well as the former swimming champion in science fiction Gattaca of Andrew Niccol. In 1999 divides an MTV Movie Award nomination with Matt Damon it’s ours Fiorello for the song “You want to be American”, sung in Mr. Ripley’s talent of Anthony Minghella: for this film Law will also receive una Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actor.

Every nerd worthy of the name has not forgotten a key part of his in 1999, namely the Ted Pikul of the cult eXistenZ of David Cronenberg.
The 2000s they see him crossing the cinema of great authors, but almost never in leading roles, he shares the screen with Joseph Fiennes in The enemy at the gates (2001) of Jean-Jacques Annaud, you interpret an automaton inAI- Artificial intelligence (2001) of Spielberg (touching the Golden Globe) or is a very cold killer in He was my father (2002) of Sam Mendes.
When Law is in the limelight, the box office results are lukewarm: it doesn’t work out much Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow (2004), and his attempt to tread in the footsteps of myth Michael Caine in the remake of Alfie (2004) he is received with coldness, even if he opens the doors of another remake, that of Sleuth (The Unsuspected) 2007: Caine takes the place he was in Laurence Olivier’s original, while Jude takes that of Caine himself. Another British doc directs them, Kenneth Branagh.
In the second half of the 2000s there are few jobs in which you steal the show, even if it comes close with the witty and very talked about Closer of Mike Nichols or with the The Aviator of Scorsese. In sentimental comedy Love does not go on vacation of 2006 seduces Cameron Diaz, and in 2007 he is among the interpreters of the underrated and pleasant A romantic kiss of Wong Kar Wai.
Meet the real blockbuster in 2009, when together with the Robert Downey Jr. / Sherlock is dr. Watson in Guy Ritchie’s breezy Sherlock Holmes, who will also direct one sequel in 2011, Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows.
