Hi Tony!
Most people don’t even take the time to tell a person how to reach their goal. I want to thank you for everything and for responding to my messages. Sometimes I just test people to see if they really care about my career and you do. You can continue to send me some tips on how I can accomplish my goals, because you inspire me a lot. Thank you for caring.

A Look At Actor Denzel Washington

actor Denzel Washington
Actor Denzel Washington is a two-time Oscar winner and star of both TV (where he started out) and film (where his presence as an actor is felt most at present). Washington was born and raised in New York State but after graduating from Fordham University with a degree in journalism and drama, he relocated to San Francisco to study with the American Conservatory Theater. He stayed there for only one year before starting his career, his talent as an actor was identified early on by industry professionals and he very quickly began to get work.

Washington is known as an actor who delivers gritty, authentic performances that are filled with skill and sincerity. He has often portrayed real people in the films that he has made which has required him to do extensive research into the stories of their lives, roles such as Malcolm X in Malcolm X, Herman Boone in Remember the Titans, Frank Lucas in American Gangster, Steve Biko in Cry Freedom and Melvin Tolson in The Great Debaters. His reputation is that of an actor who embraces the challenge of a role and dives in headfirst to any preparation that may be required to perform his role. Examples are learning how to use a firearm, training with a boxing trainer so that he could play boxer Rubin ‘Hurricane’ Carter in The Hurricane or working on the job with reporters from the Washington Post for the film The Pelican Brief.

Some of actor Denzel Washington 's more famous roles include:

The Manchurian Candidate, Man on Fire, Training Day, The Bone Collector, The Siege, Fallen, Courage Under Fire, Crimson Tide, Philadelphia, and Devil in a Blue Dress.
