In 2011, Firth received an Academy Award for his portrayal of King George VI in The King's Speech, a performance that also earned him the Golden Globe, BAFTA, and Screen Actors Guild Award for Best Actor.
The previous year, he received his first Academy Award nomination, for his leading role in A Single Man, a performance that won him a BAFTA Award.
Firth spent part of his childhood in Nigeria, where his father was teaching. While in Kings' School, he wanted to play the guitar, but the school banned the guitar and saxophone, as they were "not serious instruments", and he was told to play the euphonium instead.
His acting training took place at the Drama Centre London.

If I could finish one project of all the ones I have ever started it would be The Meadow Man.
