One of the most venerated actors of his generation, Jude Law was born in London in 1972. The child of drama teachers, Law took an interest in the stage by late childhood, enrolling in National Youth Music Theatre programs during his teens. He made his first splash in 1992, playing Foxtrot Darling in Philip Ridley's "The Fastest Clock in the Universe" at the Hampstead Theatre. His breakthrough film role would come two years later when he starred in the crime thriller "Shopping" (1994) during the same time that he was winning praise for his performance in a West End production of "Les Parents terribles." Law even followed the production to Broadway under the title "Indiscretions," where audiences remained impressed. More prominent film roles would soon follow as he appeared in the cult favorite science fiction film "Gattaca" (1997) and the critical hit "The Talented Mr. Ripley" (1998). By 2003, Law had earned status as a leading man, starring in films like the Civil War epic "Cold Mountain" (2003) and the remake of the beloved romantic comedy "Alfie" (2004), as well as prestige ensemble pieces like Mike Nichols' "Closer" (2004) and the light-hearted romp "The Holiday" (2006). Law would return to the stage in 2009 to star in a West End production of "Hamlet" before playing Watson to Robert Downey Jr.'s Holmes in Guy Ritchie's fast-paced take on "Sherlock Holmes" (2009)--a role he would reprise for the 2011 sequel. Law explored his comedic side in the crime comedy "Dom Hemingway" (2013) and even more so in the Melissa McCarthy espionage spoof "Spy" (2015), before switching gears to produce and star in the prestige series "The Young Pope" (HBO, 2016). After joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe with the role of Yon-Rogg in "Captain Marvel" (2019), Law returned to "The Young Pope" story with the follow-up series "The New Pope" (HBO, 2019).
