How did Bob Hoskins become so famous?
Bob Hoskins was a versatile actor, who had no special theatrical line as he could play any character. Bob starred in comedies, drama movies, actions and TV series. England born, he gained popularity in USA and all over the world. What was the secret of his success?
So, that’s how it happened.
Bob Hoskins was born in an ordinary English family. He was raised by a bookkeeper (father) and a teacher (mother). As Bob used to describe himself, he was “fat and short”, nevertheless Hoskins was the most changeable person in the world.
In his teens the boy was not interested in studying and at the age of 15 Hoskins dropped his school and started to earn his living. The ambitious teenager was ready to do any kind of job – he was salesman, cleaner, circus performer etc.
It was a gift from God that he had become an actor (or that was his fate and it was inevitable). One of his friends convinced Bob to go for audition to some London theater and Hoskins was accepted – he was so surprised then!
During the decades of his career Bob Hoskins starred in such films as “Balto” (voice work), “The Secret Agent” (thriller), “Neverland” (mini-series) etc.
