Bio
Tom Wilkinson was born in December 1948 in Leeds, England to a family of urban farmers. For a time, his family moved to Canada because of econmic hardships. Wilkinson graduated from the University of Kent with a major in English and American Literature. In the mid-1970's, he began working on British television and stage. In 1989, his daughter Alice was born to he and his wife Diane Hardcastle. In 1992, a second daughter, Molly was born.

After a career of over twenty years, Tom Wilkinson finally received international attention for his role in The Full Monty, which earned him a British Academy of Film and Television Arts Award (BAFTA) for Best Supporting Actor in 1998. Since then, he has worked steadily, in major supporting roles in such Hollywood films as the Jackie Chan vehicle Rush Hour, the Oscar-winning Shakespeare in Love (for which he received a BAFTA Best Supporting Actor Nomination) and the Mel Gibson blockbuster The Patriot.

Wilkinson has also gotten larger roles in smaller films such as Wilde, The Governess with Minnie Driver, Ride with the Devil and Essex Boys. In 2001, a lead role in the independent film In The Bedroom led to his first BAFTA Best Lead Actor nomination and his first Oscar nomination also for Best Actor. His upcoming films include The Importance of Being Earnest and Before You Go.
