Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

When I made Billy Elliot, people asked me, "Oh, did you want to be a dancer when you were young, then?" I didn't even like dance before I made the film. "Do you come from the north-east?" No, Somerset. "Is it based on someone?" No. We made it up. We just made it up. The act of making something up seems to be very difficult these days. See more »

Trivia:

He was awarded the 1992 London Evening Standard Theatre Award for Best Director for An Inspector Calls. See more »
