About Sir Michael Caine
Sir Michael Caine is one of the most-loved British actors with his cockney accent now instantly recognisable. Among his accolades, the actor has starred in over 115 movies, won two Oscars, awarded CBE and knighted.
However, Michael Caine’s journey wasn’t the easiest. His early beginnings included leaving school at 16 to move to Hollywood where he was hired by Peak Films as an office boy.

During the 70s, his success continued with roles in Get Carter (1971), The Man Who Would Be King (1975) and A Bridge Too Far (1978). By this time, Michael Caine was well and truly an established actor.
It was in the 80s that he received the most acclaim winning Best Actor at both the BAFTA awards and Golden Globe awards for his role in Educating Rita (1983).
The roles continued and since the 80s Michael Caine has starred in many big hits from 1992’s The Muppet Christmas Carol to 1998’s Little Voice and Christopher Nolan’s Batman.
