The son of Spanish immigrants and Irish, Martin Sheen is a hell of a mixture of two nationalities, and manifested in the appearance and temperament, and character. Blue eyes with large proteins, located on the “neutral” face with very regular features that can radically change the expression, allowing the holder to perform the role in a range of maniacs to simpletons. And the determination and courage of the Spanish conquistadors, united with the eternal Irish militancy in the struggle for justice, manifested in social engagement bus. Without his participation costs rare liberal or charitable event, he was repeatedly arrested for taking part in various, often anti-nuclear, demonstrations, on television, he – the author and performer of unique political docudrama characterizing the activity of the Kennedy brothers, counsel John Dean and others.
Unique original actor, a real nugget has not received special education, Shin drew attention to himself in 1964, playing in the sensational Broadway play “It was about the Roses” (1968 production was moved to the screen).
He started to work as a janitor, messenger, washer car dealer soda. Frequent communication with different people developed in him not mock the ability, and the ability to penetrate into the subtle nuances of human psychology. Attention to detail was the basis of the behavioral skills of their future occupations. Observation and analytical skills could not sooner or later lead to tire profession rezhisserayu
On television, he made his debut tape “Children having children”, in the film on his own script made the film “Cadence” (1990).

Devoid of any moral and ethical principles of the killer, guided only by the fear of the chase (“Wasteland”, 1973). Turning to the subject of his close and being extremely reliable bus, despite all efforts, rarely managed to diversify the images of the trade union leaders and other similar typecasting (“Wall Street”, 1987).
Only one director saw the many facets of talent of the actor: Coppola took bus in one of the central roles of the famous “Apocalypse Now” (1979). Together with Marlon Brando, he was like the two poles of human madness generated by the war. But in the final of the pole touched, the circle is closed, the hunter and the victim not changed places, not merged and displayed mutilated life consciousness. In order to pass on the screen some philosophical concept, it is necessary not only high director’s craft, but also genuine acting talent. In Mummery Shin did not give Brando, and it is – an undoubted standard of craftsmanship.
