Birth Date: February 16, 1964

Birth Place: Salford, Lancashire, England, UK

The off-beat, yet oddly handsome, Christopher Eccleston first came to prominence as the mentally-challenged teenage accused murderer Derek Bentley in the based-on-fact "Let Him Have It" (1991) before going on to play an assortment of intense, deeply conflicted characters. He really achieved big screen prominence with his expert portrayals of the dour, almost psychotic accountant in the snarky thriller "Shallow Grave" (1994) and the titular stonemason in "Jude" (1996), directed by Michael Winterbottom, as well as the plotting Duke of Norfolk in the Oscar-nominated Best Picture "Elizabeth" (1998).
