Tim Roth is a British actor born in London in 1961. He made his debut 1983 in a television play and later this year he would also make his first film role in the Mike Leigh film Meantime. In Meantime Roth made a terrific portrait of young man that is very shy and quite different and therefore having problems interacting in the social life.
Tim Roth would continue to play characters which in some aspects could be seen as outsiders, often involved in the criminal world. In 1984 Roth were one of the main characters in The Hit and won an Evening Standard award as “Most Promising Newcomer”. The Hit is kind of weird: a man being kidnap and are soon about to be assassinated because of a betrayal in the past, but this man named Willie Parker (Terence Stamp) seems not interested to escape though.
The following years Tim Roth began to be seen in movies made outside Great Britain. The big breakthrough however, that made him known to a big audience, came after his performance in Quentin Tarantino’s Reservoir Dogs (1992). Roth got also a role in Tarantino’s next movie, Pulp Fiction (1994).
After that Tim Roth has been seen in many big budget productions like To Kill a King (2003) and The Incredible Hulk (2008) together with some less big productions like The Beautiful Country (2004) and Broken (2012). The last film is especially worth seeing with Roth as a father of a girl with diabetes type 1.
