Brian Cox Wiki Biography

Brian Cox was born on 1st June 1946, in Dundee, Angus, Scotland, the only son and youngest child in the family of seven born to Roman Catholic parents of Irish and Scottish ancestry. Cox is perhaps best known for his movie appearances and theatre roles – he was the first to portray the infamous killer, Hannibal Lecktor in the 1986 movie ‘’Manhunter’’. His talent is widely recognized, thus the actor has been nominated for numerous awards.

So, just how rich is this Scottish actor as of mid-2017? Authoritative sources report that Brian Cox’s net worth is as high as $8 million, accumulated from his five decades-long acting career.
After his father’s death and several mental breakdowns of his mother, Brian’s four sisters decided to take care of him. He attended St Mary’s Forebank Primary School and St Michael’s Junior Secondary School, meantime joining Dundee Repertory Theatre when he was only 14 years old. Having found a job for himself, Cox decided to drop out of school at the age of 15, which in hindsight opened the door for opportunities and the development of Brian’s career on a higher level.

The year of 1984 brought him another notable role, the Royal Ulster Constabulary officer, Inspector Nelson, for which he awarded with ‘Best Actor in a New Play’.

In 2001 Cox played the pedophile Jon Harrigan in ‘’L.I.E’’, with critics agreeing that Brian’s performance added significantly to the movie, and it won him a Satellite Award for Best Actor – Motion Picture Drama, plus nominations for several other awards. He subsequently appeared in ‘’25th Hour’’, ‘’Super Troopers’’ and ‘’Red Eye’’ and as a protagonist, and Frank Perry in 2005 film ‘’The Escapist’’, among many other successful movies.

1Deep smooth voice
2Dark blue eyes
3Often plays characters associated with the government or the military (or both).
1[on Spike Lee] Ah, there's a director. Astonishing, Spike Lee. A feisty guy, but a guy who's, I think, incredibly misunderstood. I think people review his politics or his color as opposed to his filmmaking sometimes. Because he's a wonderful, wonderful filmmaker and a lover of the art. He stands up for things, but he's also a brilliant storyteller who really understands the whole.
2As a boy, I was never interested in theater because I came from a working-class Scottish home. I thought, "I want to do movies." Then it was finding the means to do it.
3I'm 100% Celt. In fact, I'm directly related to the progenitor of the high kings of Ireland, Niall of the Nine Hostages.
4I'm an actor who does really interesting work in independent movies. I want to keep doing that because I don't want the burden of an opening weekend sitting on my shoulders.
5In a sense I feel very much a part of the cinema now in a way where when I come back to the theater now I feel like a visitor. The cinema is really what I enjoy. I want to do more independent movies.
6I was living in London and I thought, "There's nothing here for me anymore". I don't want to become this actor who's going to be doing this occasional good work in the theater and then ever diminishing bad television. I thought I'd rather do bad movies than bad television because you get more money for it.
1Has replaced Tommy Lee Jones in two consecutive 1996 releases: Chain Reaction (1996) and The Glimmer Man (1996).
2Although Cox has been vocal about his support for Scottish independence, he did not qualify to have a vote in the 2014 referendum due to his status as a resident of the United States.
