Ben Kingsley

Exuding an air of gravitas in whatever role he played, Academy Award winner Sir Ben Kingsley made a specialty of playing historical characters, ranging from Dmitri Shostakovich in Testimony to mobster Meyer Lansky in Bugsy. His most acclaimed performance, however, was in Sir Richard Attenborough's epic biopic Gandhi, in which he played the title role of one of the 20th Century's most revered and influential figures.
