Daniel Day-Lewis Biography

Blake, Daniel Michael Day-Lewis was born in the Kensington neighbourhood of London on April 29, 1957, the second child of poet Cecil Day-Lewis and actress Jill Balcon.

Tamasin Day-Lewis, his older sister, is a television chef and culinary critic.

His father, who was born in the Irish village of Ballintubbert in County Laois, was of Protestant Anglo-Irish ancestry, resided in England since he was two years old, and was named Poet Laureate of the United Kingdom.

Day-Lewis’ mother was Jewish, and her Jewish grandparents came to England from Latvia and Poland in the late 1800s.

Sir Michael Balcon, Day-Lewis’ maternal grandfather, became the head of Ealing Studios, assisting in the development of the new British cinema industry.

Every year, the BAFTA for Outstanding Contribution to British Cinema is given in Balcon’s honour.

Day-Lewis went to Crooms Hill in Greenwich with his family two years after his birth, through Port Clarence in County Durham.

When Day-Lewis’ father divorced their mother, he and his elder sister didn’t see much of their older two half-brothers, who were teens at the time.

He was able to grasp the native dialect and mannerisms, and he credits this as his first successful performance. Later in life, he has been quoted as describing himself as a rowdy young man who was frequently arrested for theft and other small offences.


Day-Lewis had to cope with difficult South London kids while growing up in Greenwich (he went to Invicta and Sherington Primary Schools).

He was tormented at this school for being both Jewish and “posh.”

Day-Lewis’ parents sent him to the exclusive Sevenoaks School in Kent as a boarder in 1968 because his behaviour was too wild.

He was introduced to his three main passions in school: carpentry, acting, and fishing. However, his dislike for the school intensified, and after two years at Sevenoaks, he was transferred to Bedales in Petersfield, Hampshire, an independent school.

His sister was already a student there, and the atmosphere was more laid-back and creative.

At the age of 14, he made his cinematic debut in Sunday Bloody Sunday, in which he portrayed an uncredited vandal.

For getting paid £2 to vandalise luxury automobiles parked outside his local church, he hailed the experience as “paradise.”


Day-Lewis performed in theatre and television in the early 1980s, including the BBC’s Frost in May (in which he portrayed an impotent man-child) and How Many Miles to Babylon? (in which he played a World War I officer divided between allegiances to Britain and Ireland).

In the film My Beautiful Laundrette, Day-Lewis had his first highly lauded portrayal as a young homosexual English guy in an interracial romance with a Pakistani youngster in 1985.

With his portrayal as Christy Brown in Jim Sheridan’s My Left Foot in 1989, Day-Lewis advanced his own brand of method acting.

Day-Lewis featured in The Last of the Mohicans (1992), an American film based on a novel by James Fenimore Cooper.

In 1993, Day-Lewis was cast as Newland Archer in Martin Scorsese’s version of Edith Wharton’s classic The Age of Innocence.

In 1996, Day-Lewis featured with Winona Ryder in the film adaptation of Arthur Miller’s play The Crucible, alongside Paul Scofield and Joan Allen.

After a three-year hiatus from appearing on cinema, Day-Lewis resurfaced in Gangs of New York, reuniting with Martin Scorsese (2002).

There Will Be Blood, a loose cinematic version of Upton Sinclair’s classic Oil! starring Day-Lewis and Paul Dano, was released in 2007.

In 2009, Day-Lewis played film director Guido Contini in Rob Marshall’s musical adaption Nine.

In Steven Spielberg’s film Lincoln, Day-Lewis played Abraham Lincoln (2012).

On 14 January 2013, Day-Lewis received his second Golden Globe Award for Best Actor, and on 10 February, he earned his fourth BAFTA Award for Best Actor in a Leading Role at the 66th British Academy Film Awards.

“In this dazzling cesspit we call the acting business, there are plenty of competitor thesps who, by simple chance or coincidence, seem to have the career we ourselves could have had if only the cards had fallen differently,” Michael Simkins of The Guardian said in June 2017.

He was named third on The New York Times’ list of the 25 Greatest Actors of the Twenty-First Century in 2020.

Private & early life

Day-Lewis has defined his life as a “lifelong exercise in avoidance” because he values his solitude. He had a six-year relationship with French actress Isabelle Adjani, which ended after a break and reconciliation. Gabriel-Kane Day-Lewis was born on April 9, 1995, in New York City, only months after the couple split up.

In 1996, while working on the film adaptation of Arthur Miller’s stage drama The Crucible, he paid a visit to the playwright’s house and met his daughter, Rebecca Miller.

They married on November 13, 1996, later that year. Ronan Cal Day-Lewis and Cashel Blake Day-Lewis are the couple’s sons. Their residences in Annamoe, County Wicklow, and Manhattan, New York, are where they spend the majority of their time.

Day-Lewis got an honorary doctorate in letters from the University of Bristol on July 15, 2010, in part because of his childhood enrollment at the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School. Day-Lewis has remarked that he received “no genuine religious education” and that he “supposes” to be a “devout agnostic.”

He gave materials belonging to his father, poet Cecil Day-Lewis, to the University of Oxford in October 2012, including early draughts of the poet’s work and letters from actors John Gielgud and intellectual giants such as W. H. Auden, Robert Graves, and Philip Larkin. He was named Honorary President of the Poetry Archive in July 2015.

The Poetry Archive is a free website with a growing collection of recordings of English-language poets reciting their work. It is a registered UK charity.

Day-Lewis was named a patron of the Wilfred Owen Association in June 2017. His father, Cecil Day-Lewis, edited Owen’s poetry in the 1960s, and his mother, Jill Balcon, was a vice-president of the Wilfred Owen Association until her death in 2009.
