Danny Boyle

director

Danny Boyle was raised in a working-class Irish Catholic family, with his mother earmarking him for priesthood. However, at 14 a priest persuaded him not to pursue the calling, and now he is one of the UK’s most popular directors, known for films such as Trainspotting, Slumdog Millionaire and 127 Hours. In 2009 Slumdog won eight Oscars, including Boyle being named Best Director. He is one of only seven directors to win the Golden Globe, BAFTA, Director's Guild and Academy Award for the same movie. Quite apart from his consistent success as one of Britain’s foremost directors, Boyle’s role at the helm of the Opening Ceremony of the London 2012 Olympics makes him talismanic and defined the director as a national hero.
