Patrick Stewart

British actor Patrick Stewart became interested in acting when he was still at school, when he was 15. In 1969, at the age of 29, he made his debut on television. American fame came to him only in 1987, and the world - in 2000. At age 60, Stewart played Professor Xavier in the comic book blockbuster "X-Men". It is still his most famous film work.


Christoph Waltz

Austrian actor Christoph Waltz studied acting in Vienna and New York, and his entire family was involved in theater. His English-language screen debut was the 2000 film Orient Express, but that film had no impact on his popularity. It was not until 2009, when the famous Quentin Tarantino starred the 53-year-old Christoph in the thriller "Inglourious Basterds," that the celebrity conquered the world. In 2015, the celebriti played the main villain in the film "007: Spectre."
