Sir Michael Caine, CBE and born Maurice Joseph Micklewhite on the 14th of March 1933 is a quirky English actor and author. Always one to blow the doors off any performance, he is genuinely hugely popular with the public. This is probably because he is so honest.
Sir Michael has spread his Cockney accent through many a great film, from Zulu, The Italian Job, Batman, The Ipcress File, Battle of Britain, The Man Who Would Be King, A Bridge Too Far, etc etc etc.
The British Film industry owes a great deal to Sir Michael as he was one of those actors that charged into Hollywood and flooded the film sets with other English Actors. Whilst most British film companies were receiving winding up petitions he was receiving rewards.
Many Film related businesses are still having to look at Company Voluntary Arrangements in order to survive but thanks to Sir Michael, there is still a film industry left in the UK – just.
