Clive Owen was born on 3 October 1964, in Coventry, West Midlands, UK, to Pamela and Jess Owen, a country and western singer. He is an English actor, perhaps best known for his roles in the films “Croupier”, “Closer” and “Children of Men”.

Owen was raised by his mother and stepfather, along with his four brothers, as his father abandoned the family when he was a toddler. He attended Binley Park Comprehensive School, becoming a member of a youth theater at the age of 13 and appearing in a production of “Oliver!”. He went on to enroll in the acclaimed Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in London, and later joined London’s Young Vic theater, appearing in various productions of the company, including a number of Shakespearean plays.

Owen made his television debut in 1988, appearing in the TV films “Vroom” and “Precious Bane”. In 1990 he was cast with the lead role as Stephen Crane/Derek Love in the ITV television series “Chancer”, the role which brought him considerable recognition. He made his feature film debut with the lead role of Richard Gillespie in the 1991 film “Close My Eyes” gaining critical acclaim, and went on to appear in several other films and a number of TV films during the decade.

However, it was his work in the 1997 neo-noir film “Croupier” that shot him to Hollywood stardom, playing the role of an aspiring and struggling writer named Jack Manfred. Aside from giving him a career-boosting success, the role greatly added to Owen’s net worth.

Opportunities continued to come his way, both on big and small screens. Aside from several television films and series, Owen appeared in films including “Greenfingers”, “Gosford Park”, “The Bourne Identity” and “Beyond Borders”. In 2004 he got the lead role of dermatologist Larry Gray in the highly acclaimed melodrama “Closer” by Patrick Marber, an adaptation of his same-titled play in which Owen also appeared in. The winner of many awards and nominations, the film brought him a huge level of popularity and a fan base that spans the globe, significantly contributing to his wealth. His performance earned him Golden Globe and BAFTA awards, as well as an Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actor.

Owen also showed his outstanding acting talent in the highly acclaimed 2006 science fiction thriller “Children of Men”. His role of Theo Faron earned rave reviews, giving his career even more of a boost. It additionally improved his net worth as well.

The actor continued to work steadily in the big screen projects in the following years, landing roles in films such as “Shoot’Em Up”, “Elizabeth: The Golden Age”, “The International” and “The Boys Are Back”, so improving his fortune. He starred as Ernest Hemingway in the 2012 biopic HBO film “Hemingway & Gellhorn”, and then as Chris Pierzynski in the 2013 crime thriller “Blood Ties”.

As of 2014, he has starred as Dr. John W. Thackery in the television series “The Knick”, in which he has also served as executive producer. Then in 2015 he appeared on Broadway, in a revival of Harold Pinter’s “Old Times”. Owen is currently filming the sci-fi films “Anon” and “Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets”.

In his private life, Clive Owen has been married to actress Sarah-Jane Fenton since 1995. The couple has two daughters.

#Quote
1I like the high-wire act, playing someone who is not entirely straightforward, not something easy, palatable.
2That's the best place to be, both excited and scared. What's the worst thing that can happen? The worst thing that can happen is that I'll be bad. I've been bad before - I'll be bad again.
3People keep on saying I missed my chance with not being James Bond, but my films still appear with the tedious inevitability of an unloved season.
4Before I became an actor, I remember how I hated chickens. I was sick when I even saw one. But all that is over now, for acting has shown me how foolish it was. I have learned to love chickens, to love their flesh, their voice. One day, when I'm through with acting, I'll go home to look after the chickens that I love so much. That's what being an actor has done for me.
5(On his plans for Catweazle (1970)) Making the film (The Boys Are Back (2009)) made me realise I've not made many films my own children can see, and I want them to see what their old man does for a living. When I was a kid, Catweazle (1970) was the bees' knees, the best thing on TV. I didn't want to be Cedric or the other kid, I wanted to grow up to be just like Catweazle. It's my dream role. You could say my whole career has just been a rehearsal for Catweazle. It (the character's look) is a bit of a problem with the Lancombe contract, but if it comes to choice between them, it'll have to be Catweazle. I hope it doesn't come to that! Maybe they can do before and after adverts - with Catweazle (1970) the before!
6[on bad scripts he is reading] These are films that are funded and ready to go - expensive movies. You're amazed that people are funding them. I start to think it's me, that I'm being too choosy.
7I got in a cab in Glasgow years ago and this quite surly cabdriver says to me, 'You're that actor, aren't you? You get paid to lie, don't you? That's what actors are, aren't they? Professional bullsh***ers.' It had quite an effect on me. I f***ing get paid to lie. . . . I walked out of there and I spent a bit of time thinking about it. And then I realized I think it's the opposite: It's an opportunity to tell the truth. I try to do that in everything I do. And whether you like a movie I'm in or not, I want you to believe me. More than admire me or think I was brilliantly skillful, I want you to believe me.
8I've heard people say I have a dull and monotonous voice, but the truth is that I put all my effort into communicating to the audience via my eyes. An actor can say so much with their eyes. I would have loved to have been an actor in the days of silent movies. Sounding interesting disinterests me. Looking interesting is another matter entirely.
9(On Bond) It's easy to keep saying no to a role you're not being offered. If they really had offered? I don't know. It's possible I would have said yes. It's possible. But they never asked so we'll never really know.
10I don't "do" emotion. Emotions are overrated. I'm more interested in creating a presence.
11Bond was the best thing that never happened to me. I was never in the running but the more I said so, the more people thought I had it in the bag. What's so funny about it all is my career in Britain was in really bad shape at the time, but my agents pretty much built me a new one in America by playing up all the Bond stories. All I had to do was keep on telling people I was never going to be Bond. I'd like to think I made it on talent, but it's really just dumb luck. If I hadn't worn that tux in Croupier (1998), I'd still be begging for the parts Robson Green turned down on cop shows.
12On his fear of badgers: I've never been bitten by one or anything like that, they just look evil to me. Even watching The Wind in the Willows they scared me. It was like the Devil staring straight into my eyes. It's something I've never outgrown. Even today, just the thought of badgers absolutely terrifies me. Hell to me is a room full of badgers.
13[Talking about Daniel Craig]: "I think when Craig first took the (James Bond) part he got a pretty rough ride, which to a certain extent is inevitable because there are so many different people who have so many different ideas about something like that. You are never going to please everybody. The thing that is really exciting is that he is a proper actor. He is not shallow or posing, they have cast a really serious actor and I think that when the film comes out everyone will see what a great choice he was".
14The lighter stuff has got to be really well written for me, or it just doesn't get me going. There's something to play if there's conflict going on. Whatever that conflict is, that's where drama is; if the character is grappling with something you've got something to play, there's layers to it. And when that isn't there it's ... less interesting.
15Theater is like exercise. I feel it's healthy. But I don't love it as much as movies. A bad experience in the theater can be so depressing. You've got to do it every night, even if the production is not working.
16When I was 10 or 11, I played the Artful Dodger in a school production of 'Oliver. From that point forward, I said I wanted to be an actor. Nobody in my family took it seriously, but I saw no other path. I was a cocky little kid. This one teacher said: 'You're a working-class kid from Coventry. What do you know?'
17Theatre uses a different energy. It's like going to the gym and having a vigorous workout. But every few years is enough because I love filming. I am a real film animal.
18The sexiest part of the body is the eyes. Corny, but that's what I believe. They're what connect us as human beings.
19I've never been interested in playing good guys. I'm always attracted to dangerous characters. Those roles are usually far more interesting and I hold no fears about doing them. With my character in Croupier (1998), you're never really sure where he's coming from. He's not really a good guy or a bad guy. But people generally aren't, are they?
