    Richard Burton

     

    Welsh stage and cinema actor, Richard Burton was born on November 10, 1925 and passed away on August 5, 1984. He has been renowned for his smooth baritone voice and acting talent. Critic and Kenneth Tynan called him the “natural successor to Olivier” owing to his great performance as Hamlet in the year 1964. When he gave up acting on stage, it disappointed many critics.

    Although he has never won, he was nominated seven times for Academy Award. He received Golden Globe, Tony Awards and BAFTA for best actor. By late 1960s, he started to receive a fee of $1 million making him the highest paid actor in the world. He still remains in the news intermittently because of his second wife, Elizabeth Taylor. He was married five times and his last wife was Sally Hay and has four children. The reason for his death was a brain haemorrhage.
