Mini biography


Edward Norton was born on August 18, 1969 to parents Edward, an attorney

who works for the National Trust for Historic Preservation and Robin

Norton, a former foundation executive and teacher who passed away of

brain cancer on March 6, 1997. Edward also has two younger siblings

named James and Molly. From the age of 5 onward, the Yale graduate

(majoring in history) has always been interested in acting. At the age

of 8, he would ask his drama teacher what his motivation in a scene was.

He attended theater schools throughout his life, and eventually managed

to find work on stage in New York as a member of the Signature players,

who produced the works of playwright and director HYPERLINK

"" Edward Albee . Around the time when

he was appearing in Albee's Fragments, in Hollywood, they were looking

for a young actor to star opposite HYPERLINK

"" The People vs. Larry Flynt (1996).

Edward won the Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Supporting Role and

received an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actor for his

performance in HYPERLINK "" Primal

Fear (1996). In 1998, Norton gained 30 pounds of muscle and transformed

his look into that of a monstrous skinhead for his role as a violent

white supremacist in HYPERLINK ""

American History X (1998). This performance would earn him his second

Oscar nomination, this time for Best Actor. In 1999 came the critically

acclaimed HYPERLINK "" Fight Club

(1999) and in 2000 came his directorial HYPERLINK

"" debut in HYPERLINK

"" Keeping the Faith (2000).




Following graduation, he worked in Osaka, Japan, consulting for his

grandfather's company, Enterprise Foundation, which works to create

decent, affordable housing for low-income families.


On his return to New York, it took less than two years of waiting tables

before the young thespian to capture the eye of HYPERLINK

"" Edward Albee , one of the most

celebrated playwrights of the 20th century. Albee was working with the
