Bill Murray was born in the town of Wilmette, Illinois, September 21, 1950. He grew up in a large family of Irish Catholics who had emigrated from Europe in the first half of the twentieth century. His father worked in the logging company, and his mother was a housewife.

After returning home for a while, Bill worked in a pizzeria and at the construction site. Who knows what would have happened to him life if he did not get into the Actors Studio ‘Second City’, where he studied his brother Brian. Despite the fact that the Bill without any problems and was interviewed sample to the profession of an actor he treated lightly.
