Daniel-Day-Lewis

In shocking news today, legendary character actor Daniel Day-Lewis has announced his retirement from acting.

An official statement with no reasoning as to why was presented via Day-Lewis’s spokeswoman, Leslee Dart:

“Daniel Day-Lewis will no longer be working as an actor. He is immensely grateful to all of his collaborators and audiences over the many years. This is a private decision and neither he nor his representatives will make any further comment on this subject. ”

The British-born actor had his breakthrough role in the 1985 film My Beautiful Laundrette, but it was his role as Christy Brown in 1989’s My Left Foot that made him a household name. Day-Lewis is a three time Academy Award Best Actor with My Left FootThere Will Be Blood, and Lincoln, where he played the titular legendary President.

While he brought such exuberant characters that just showcased his talents, outside the screens, Day-Lewis is usually a private person. He is married to second-generation independent filmmaker and novelist Rebecca Miller and has three children, one from a previous relationship with Isabelle Adjani and two with Miller.

Daniel Day-Lewis leaves behind a legacy of characters in cinema that will never be outmatched. The only thing left to say is, “Thank You Daniel! We wish you the best in your retirement!”
