Kingsley began his career on stage, but he quickly moved to films - his first supporting role was in the 1972 movie "Fear is the Key".
Although Kingsley featured in a number of television programs and movies, it wasn't until his Academy award winning performance in the film "Gandhi" in 1982 that he became a global star.
Both critics and audiences praised his performance.
Kingsley went on to star in a number of other critically acclaimed movies including "Bugsy", "Searching for Bobby Fischer", "Schindler's List", "Sexy Beast" and "House of Sand and Fog".
Kingsley is currently promoting his role in a new campaign aimed at imposing a Robin Hood tax on financial institutions. http://www.youtube.com/user/RobinHoodTax
