Early Life and Career Beginnings
Danny Boyle was born on October 20, 1956 in Radcliffe, Lancashire, England to Irish parents Annie and Frank. He has a twin sister named Marie, as well as a younger sister named Bernadette. Raised in a working-class Catholic household, Boyle was an altar boy for eight years, and attended the Catholic boys’ school Thornleigh Salesian College in Bolton. Subsequently, he went to the University College of North Wales, where he studied English and drama and directed several plays.
Following his college graduation, Boyle began his career at the Joint Stock Theatre Company, and then moved to the Royal Court Theatre in 1982. There, he directed the plays “The Genius” and “Saved.” Boyle also directed a number of productions for the Royal Shakespeare Company around this time. In 1987, he began working as a television producer for BBC Northern Ireland, where he produced Alan Clarke’s controversial short film “Elephant.” He subsequently directed episodes of such shows as “Not Even God is Wise Enough,” “For the Greater Good,” and “Inspector Morse.”
Start of Film Career
In 1994, Boyle made his feature film directorial debut with the black crime comedy “Shallow Grave,” starring Kerry Fox, Christopher Eccleston, and Ewan McGregor. After premiering at Cannes, it was released in the United Kingdom in 1995, when it became the most commercially successful British film of the year. Moreover, it went on to win the BAFTA Award for Best British Film. Boyle followed this with an even greater triumph in 1996, which saw the release of his literary adaptation “Trainspotting.” Starring Ewan McGregor, Robert Carlyle, Ewen Bremner, and Johnny Lee Miller, among others, the film follows a group of heroin addicts in working-class Edinburgh. “Trainspotting” received an Academy Award nomination for Best Adapted Screenplay, and continues to be considered by many as one of the best British films of the 20th century. In 1997, Boyle released “A Life Less Ordinary,” also starring Ewan McGregor as well as Cameron Diaz, Holly Hunter, and Delroy Lindo. Unlike Boyle’s first two films, it received mixed reviews, and flopped at the box office.
He won the Academy Award for best director for the movie Slumdog Millionaire. Boyle grew up outside of Manchester, England and started his career in British TV and theater in the early 1980s. His first projects were the very black comedies, Shallow Grave (1994) and Trainspotting (1996), the latter of which earned him a critical acclaim and financial success, making Ewan McGregor a star in the process.
Even though he captured Hollywood attention with his next two feature films, A Life Less Ordinary (1997, with McGregor again) and The Beach (2000, starring Leonardo DiCaprio), they both fared poorly. Next, he went on to make two British TV movies, as well as the hit horror movie, 28 Days Later (2003) in collaboration with writer Alex Garland (author of the novel The Beach) and the surprisingly soft-hearted children’s fantasy, Millions (2005).
It was in 2008, when he won an Oscar and once again enjoyed worldwide fame for directing the rags-to-riches hit movie Slumdog Millionaire, starring Freida Pinto. Over the years, Boyle proved adept at shifting genres thus keeping his unique voice he had established in previous efforts and earning success on both sides of the pond.
