To begin with, Peter O’Toole was the son of bookmaker Patrick Joseph O’Toole and Constance Ferguson, a nurse. He grew up largely in Leeds, England under poor conditions. At the age of 11, O’Toole began his high school education at St. Anne’s convent, in which he was struggling to get rid of his left- handedness. Three years later, O’Toole left the school and found employment as a photographer and journalist for the Yorkshire Evening News, before he took his military service in the Royal Navy as a submariner. From the age of 17, O’Toole appeared as a lay actor on stage. After seeing a stage adaptation of “King Lear” with Michael Redgrave in the title role in Stratford-upon-Avon, he decided to pursue a professional acting career. In 1952 O’Toole received a scholarship from the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts, and subsequently had his first engagement at the Bristol Old Vic Theatre, in which he portrayed Hamlet. From Bristol he made his way to London and Stratford-upon-Avon, where he played, among others Petruchio in “The Taming of the Shrew” at the newly founded Royal Shakespeare Company.

On television, he debuted in “O’Toole” in the mid-1950s. However, to a worldwide audience, he was known for his numerous theatre performances. In 1962, he played the title role in David Lean’s “Lawrence of Arabia” (1962), for which he received his first Oscar nomination, a Golden Globe Award and the British Film Academy Award. It was the beginning of a successful career that brought him seven more Oscar nominations as the Best Actor: two for his portrayal of King Henry II in “Becket” in 1964 and in “The Lion in Winter” in 1968; for his role as a shy English teacher who falls in love with a showgirl ( “Goodbye, Mr. Chips” in 1969); for the part of the intellectual and deeply religious British aristocrat Jack Gurney ( “The Ruling Class” in 1972); for his portrayal of the ruthless film director Eli Cross ( “The Long Death of Stuntman Cameron” in 1981) and the formerly successful, alcoholic film actor Alan Swann, who enters new territory with his television work ( “A New Yorker” 1982). O’Toole received his final Oscars nomination in 2007 for the lead role in Roger Michell’s tragicomedy “Venus” in which he is torn out of his lethargy by a 19-year-old (played by Jodie Whittaker) as a minor successful London veteran actor. In 2002, he was awarded the Oscar for his lifelong contribution to the film industry. In July 2012, O’Toole announced his retirement from film and theatre.

Finally, in the personal life of the actor, he was married to the Welsh actress Siân Phillips from 1959 to 1979; they had two daughters Kate and Pat, both of whom are actresses. From a relationship with the American model Karen Brown, he has a son Lorcan O’Toole. Peter O’Toole died in London after a long illness with stomach cancer on the 14th December 2013, at the age of 81.

1When I got the part I did what every actor does. I looked in the mirror and realised that this is meat, this is what you have to work with.
2It's all so political. Keep the director happy. Keep the unit happy. Keep them working well. Because in the end, it's you up there on the screen.
3[about his time serving in the Royal Navy] At that point His Majesty felt it was vital to the security of the nation that I join the armed forces [...] I vomited over every cubic foot of the seven seas.
4[on Henry II, a king he portrayed in both Becket (1964) and The Lion in Winter (1968)] I like the man. He interests me. He never lost a battle, and yet he never fought a battle if he could arrange it diplomatically. The last thing he ever wanted was to fight, but when he did, he fought. A man of great wit - funny, a lawgiver - and yet at the same time, frail, human. Now, am I describing me? I don't know. I like to think it is, perhaps, just merely a fabulation but I like to think it.
5It's kind of a performing art - writing. I can't sit down to write unless I'm dressed. I mean dressed well and comfortably. And I have to be shaved and bathed and then the curtain goes up. And if I'm not in my study by 10 or 10:30, forget it. I can't write a word.
6I'm a professional, and I'll do anything - a poetry reading, television, cinema, anything that allows me to act... [And also because] it's what I do for a living and, besides, I've got bookies to keep.
7[I have long been] happy to grasp the hand of misfortune, dissipation, riotous living and violence.
8Stardom is insidious. It creeps up through the toes. You don't realise what's happening until it reaches your nut. That's when it becomes dangerous.
9Fornication, madness, murder, drunkenness, shouting, shrieking, leaping polite conversation and the breaking of bones, such jollities constitute acceptable behaviour, but no acting allowed. (his house rules for a New Year's Eve party at his Hampstead home)
10I hitched to London on a lorry, looking for adventure. I was dropped at Euston Station and was trying to find a hostel. I passed the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, and walked in just to case the joint.
11I will not be a common man because it is my right to be an uncommon man. I will stir the smooth sands of monotony.
12I will not be a common man. I will stir the smooth sands of monotony.
13It's time for me to chuck in the sponge. To retire from films ans stage. The heart for it has gone out of me. It won't come back.
14The good parts are the people who don't make do. They're the interesting people. Lear doesn't make do.
15If you can't do something willingly and joyfully, then don't do it. If you give up drinking, don't go moaning about it. Go back on the bottle. Do. As. Thou. Will.
16[re his Lord Jim (1965) performance] It was a mistake and I made the mistake because I was conservative and played safe. And that way lies failure. It was a juvenile lead part and I've decided now at 33 that I'll never become another aging juvenile.
17Booze is the most outrageous of drugs, which is why I chose it.
18[on Sophia Loren] Sophia is gorgeous, a marvelously put together machine. But she's a grievous card sharp; in Naples, they're born with a pack of cards. Give her a nudge and she's the funniest woman in the world. A helluva woman!
19[on Katharine Hepburn] I worship that bloody woman. I've never enjoyed working with anyone so much in my whole life, not even Richard Burton. There were no problems, not a one.
20[on Ursula Andress] I've had luck with my leading ladies. The real shocker was Ursula Andress, with whom I made What's New Pussycat (1965). She's a bloody sex symbol and all that, and yet she's one of the nicest people you'll ever meet. A real mother hen, looking after everybody.
21I enjoyed it. The only thing that wasn't enjoyable was in the green room. I said, 'Can I have a drink?' 'We have lemon juice, apple juice, still or sparkling.' I said, 'No, I want a drink. No drink?' I said, 'All right, I'm f**king off. I'll be back.' A man with earphones said, 'No! No!' Eventually this vodka was smuggled in. - On The 75th Annual Academy Awards (2003)
22Books have been written about that so-called renaissance at the Royal Court Theatre. Bollocks. I watched this appalling bunch of strange young men creeping around, talking pompously.
23For a young actor it was intimidating. But! You look into the eyes and you see actors know actors. It's like playing jazz. You really have to go there with your trumpet and compete.
24The nicest buttocks in the world are in Ireland. Irish women are always carrying water on their heads, and always carrying their husbands home from pubs. Such things are the greatest posture-builders in the world.
25The only exercise I take is walking behind the coffins of friends who took exercise.
26"Always a bridesmaid, never a bride - my foot!" (on receiving a lifetime achievement at the 75th Academy awards March 23, 2003.)
27For me, life has either been a wake or a wedding.
28Noël Coward (to O'Toole): "If you'd been any prettier, it would have been Florence of Arabia".
29I can't stand light. I hate weather. My idea of heaven is moving from one smoke-filled room to another.
1Although he played John Standing and Edward Fox's father in Gulliver's Travels (1996), he was only two years older than Standing and less than five years older than Fox in real life.
2His middle name was actually James, although he often used the Irish version Seamus.
3Could play the bagpipes and during his youth was a member of an Irish pipe band. He is seen playing the pipes in two of his films: Kidnapped (1960) and Brotherly Love (1970).
4The Leeds City Council register of births, deaths and marriages proved that the man who went through life proudly purporting to be an Irishman was in fact a Yorkshireman, born at the famous St James University Hospital in Leeds, on 2 August 1932.
5Although O'Toole always claimed to have been born in Ireland, the birth records show he was actually born in Leeds in England. There is no record of any Peter O'Toole being born in Ireland in 1932. O'Toole's parents had lived in Leeds since 1930.
6Is one of 13 actors who have received an Academy Award nomination for his portrayal of a real-life king. The others in chronological order are Charles Laughton for The Private Life of Henry VIII.

7He was offered the role of Grigori Rasputin in Nicholas and Alexandra (1971) but he turned it down. Tom Baker was eventually cast.
8He appeared in two Best Picture Academy Award winners: Lawrence of Arabia (1962) and The Last Emperor (1987).
9After his death his ashes were brought back to Ireland, where they are held in safe keeping by President Michael D Higgins in his official residence, Áras an Uachtaráin, until he can be laid to rest in the west of Ireland.
10In his later films (from the 1980s onwards) he is frequently seen wearing an Irish Claddagh ring on the third finger of his right hand.
11He worked with Peter Sellers, Woody Allen, Ursula Andress and Burt Bacharach on both What's New Pussycat (1965) and Casino Royale (1967).
12He appeared in four films with his ex-wife Siân Phillips: Becket (1964), Goodbye, Mr. Chips (1969), Murphy's War (1971) and Under Milk Wood (1972).
13Remained friends with ex-wife Siân Phillips after their divorce.
14Chosen by GQ magazine as one of the 50 most stylish men of the past 50 years.
15(July 10, 2012) Announced his retirement from acting.
16Was scheduled to star with Toshirô Mifune in "Will Adams", to be directed by John Huston, with screenplay by Dalton Trumbo and produced by Eugene Frenke and Jules Buck. "A daring adventurer challenges the traditions of a mighty empire".
17He played the first Roman Emperor Augustus in Imperium: Augustus (2003), whereas his ex-wife, Siân Phillips, played Augustus' wife, Livia, in I, Claudius (1976).
18According to his daughter Kate O'Toole, the actor wears green socks every day due to personal superstitions.
19Is a lifelong cricket and rugby fanatic.
20Won his career-making part in Lawrence of Arabia (1962) after it was turned down by superstar Marlon Brando and a then-unknown Albert Finney. Both director David Lean and producer Sam Spiegel (who produced On the Waterfront (1954), the movie for which Brando and Spiegel won their first Oscars) wanted Brando, but he turned the role down (allegedly saying he didn't want to spend two years of his life riding on a camel). Finney was put through extensive screen-tests costing 100,000 pounds, but refused to sign a seven year contract demanded by Spiegel. O'Toole signed the seven-year contract and got the part.
21Has said that he learned more about acting by working with José Ferrer in Lawrence of Arabia (1962) than in any acting class. Ferrer himself considers that role to be his best. Ironically, Ferrer nearly declined the role he played because it was so small -- roughly five minutes out of a four hour movie.
22Allegedly declined a knighthood for political reasons in 1987.
23His actual date of birth went unrecorded, and O'Toole has said himself that he may have been born in June 1932.
24Was the original choice to play King Henry VIII in A Man for All Seasons (1966) but Robert Shaw, who went on to receive a Best Supporting Actor Oscar nomination for his performance, was cast instead.
25Resides in Galway, Ireland and London, England.
26It is interesting to note that the DVD of Rogue Male (1976) has a two page biography of Peter O'Toole that at the end reads as follows: Peter O'Toole died in 2003 after a long illness. Whoever entered that erroneous fact must have been very surprised to see Peter show up at the Academy Awards for his nomination in Venus (2006).
27Broke his hip while filming Venus (2006), but returned to work after only three weeks.
28He was almost cast as Professor Henry Higgins in My Fair Lady (1964) due to concerns that Rex Harrison was too old for the part, but his salary demands were more than producer Jack L. Warner was willing to pay.
29Has named Eric Porter as the actor who has influenced him most.
30A close friend of April Ashley.
31Father of actor Lorcan O'Toole, Kate O'Toole and Pat O'Toole.
32While at RADA in the early 1950s he was active in protesting British involvement in the Korean War. Later in the 1960s he was an active opponent of the Vietnam War.
33Was originally approached by director Billy Wilder to play "Sherlock Holmes" in The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes (1970), opposite Peter Sellers as "Dr. Watson". Wilder later decided to go with lesser known stars instead.
34Was a close friend of late actress Katharine Hepburn. Although some believe his daughter, Kate O'Toole is named after Hepburn, according to Sian Phillips' autobiography they named their daughter after Kate, the title character in Shakespeare's "Taming of the Shrew". They were inspired by the line in the play "Kate, sweet Kate, the prettiest Kate in Christendom".
35Cites Rose Byrne and Jodie Whittaker as the best young actresses he has ever worked with.
36Nominated 8 times for best actor but has never won an Academy Award. He has more nominations without winning than any other actor.
37His performance as "Alan Swann" in My Favorite Year (1982) is ranked #56 on Premiere Magazine's 100 Greatest Movie Characters of All Time.
38The 1976 film adaptation of the book "The Man Who Fell To Earth", directed by Nicolas Roeg, was originally meant to be a vehicle for O'Toole.
39His performance as "T.E. Lawrence" in Lawrence of Arabia (1962) is the #1 ranked performance of all time in Premiere Magazine's 100 Greatest Performances of All Time (2006).
40When he was named the recipient of a Special Oscar for lifetime achievement in 2003, he originally intended to turn it down feeling that the lifetime award signaled the end of his career. He wrote the Academy a letter stating that he was "still in the game" and would like more time to "win the lovely bugger outright." It was only after the Academy informed him that they were bestowing the award on him whether he came to collect it or not that he relented.
41In 1976 he underwent surgery to remove parts of his stomach and intestine, at the time attributed to his heavy drinking, but later disclosed to be stomach cancer. In the following year he almost died from a blood disorder. These two serious illnesses greatly affected his ability to work at that time.
42Has portrayed three kings, one of them twice (King Henry II in Becket (1964) also in The Lion in Winter (1968)), one of them fictional (Sir/King Cedric Willingham in King Ralph (1991)) and King Priam in Troy (2004), two emperors, one of them real (Emperor Tiberius Caesar in Caligula (1979)) and one of them fictional (Emperor of Lilliput in Gulliver's Travels (1996)), a fictional prince (Prince Meleagre in The Rainbow Thief (1990)), a real president (President Paul von Hindenburg in Hitler: The Rise of Evil (2003)), a real Pope (Pope Paul III in The Tudors (2007)) and several lords.
43Both he and his fellow Irish actor (and close friend), the late Richard Harris appeared in versions of 'Gulliver's Travels': Harris played the 1977 film version Gulliver's Travels (1977) and O'Toole played the Emperor of Lilliput in the 1996 TV-film version Gulliver's Travels (1996), where Ted Danson played Gulliver.
44Became an Associate Member of RADA.
45He is only one of six performers to be nominated for an Oscar twice for playing the same role in two separate films. He was nominated as Henry II in Becket (1964) and The Lion in Winter (1968).

Furthermore, O'Toole is the only one of these six who was nominated for playing the same character (at two different stages in his life) in films that were not a prequel or sequel to the other.
46Was friends with fellow Irish actor Richard Harris. After Harris died, his family hoped that O'Toole would replace him as Professor Albus Dumbledore in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (2004), but the role went to Michael Gambon instead.
