Nicolas Cage was bornon 7 January 1964 in Long Beach, American, is Actor, Producer. Nicolas Cage is one of the most famous actors in Hollywood. Be it for his versatility or the discovery of the new acting process called ‘method acting’, Cage is currently one of Hollywood’s most talented actors. He hails from anupright background, where both, his mother and father, though separated, were well-respected achievers in their own fields. He is also related to Francis Ford Coppola, but changed his name so that he could create an identity of his own in Hollywood, devoid of any sort of family connections. He dropped out of high school, so that he could pursue a career in acting. His life as an actor began with teenage comedies like ‘Fast Times at Ridgemont High’ and ‘Valley Girl’. Instead on piggy-backing off his uncle’s accomplishments, he struggled for a few years on his own until he was cast in films like ‘The Cotton Club’, ‘Birdy’, ‘Moonstruck’, ‘Vampire’s Kiss’, ‘Wild At Heart’ and ‘Leaving Las Vegas’. He also caught the attention of the audience with his hair-raising performances in mainstream box-office hits such as, ‘Con Air’, ‘City of Angels, ‘National Treasure’, ‘The Weather Man’, ‘Ghost Rider’, ‘The Sorcerer’s Apprentice’, ‘Knowing’ and ‘The Croods’. Acting aside, Cage is an avid collector of comics, owns a variety of exotic pets and is also an automobile buff.
