Ben Kingsley: Career In Four Minutes

Ben Kingsley makes his presence felt in Iron Man 3 as Tony Stark’s iconic nemesis, The Mandarin.

His performance is one of the threequel’s purest pleasures, nailing a contemporary take on the comic-book villain.

And of course, Kingsley didn’t earn the ‘Sir Ben’ tag for nothing, notching up a variety of roles on an eclectic CV since bagging an Oscar for his lead role in Gandhi .

For a concise, eloquent summation of that career in just four minutes - from his early days treading the boards in Shakespeare plays, to his incendiary performance in Sexy Beast , as well as his experiences working with cinema powerhouses Steven Spielberg and Martin Scorsese - look no further.
