Movie star Ethan Hawke was the latest actor to immortalize his hands and feet into the cement at the TLC Chinese Theatre IMAX this month.
Hawke, a three-time Oscar nominee and winner of 21 notable film industry awards, was born on Nov. 6, 1970 in Austin, Tx. He has performed or starred in 50 feature films. As a result of acting lessons and appearances in student productions, he persuaded his mother to allow him to attend an audition for a role in a sci-fi adolescent adventure, “Explorers”, for which he received the part (along with River Phoenix).
He was admitted to Carnegie-Mellon University to study theatre but his studies were interrupted when he won his break-through role opposite Robin Williams in “Dead Poets Society”.
His subsequent acting career includes such notable films as “Gattaca” and “Training Day”. He has also written two novels and several screenplays.
One of Hawke’s most recent films, “Boyhood”, for which he wrote two songs (which are reportedly possible Oscar contenders), was voted one of 2014’s top ten films by “TheWrap”.
