Biography

Enfance
Lee Pace est né à Chickasha, une petite ville de l'Oklahoma. Enfant, Lee a passé plusieurs années en Arabie saoudite (son père travaillant dans l'industrie du pétrole), avant de rejoindre Houston au Texas.

Il est diplômé de la Klein High School en 1997. Il voyage alors en Inde avec seulement $4 par jour pendant quelques mois. À son retour il déménage à New York et entre à la Juilliard School, dont il sort diplômé en art dramatique en 2001. Les acteurs Tracie Thoms et Anthony Mackie comptaient parmi ses camarades de classe à Juilliard.

Lee a deux jeunes frères et sœurs, Will et Sally.


Carrière

Théâtre
En 2001 et 2002, Lee joue dans plusieurs pièces de théâtres dont The Credeaux Canvas et The Fourth Sister. En 2004, il est choisi pour interpréter Hakija dans la pièce de Craig Lucas Small Tragedy, prestation pour laquelle il a été nominé aux Lucille Lortel Awards. En 2006, il participe à la pièce de théâtre Guardians de Peter Morris, ce qui lui vaut à nouveau une nomination pour les Lucille Lortel Awards dans la catégorie "meilleur acteur".

En 2011, Lee Pace fait ses débuts sur la scène de Broadway dans The Normal Heart au Golden Theater. Par la suite, il joue le compositeur italien Vincenzo Bellini dans la pièce Golden Age en 2012, au Manhattan Theatre Club.


Cinéma
Deux ans après avoir été diplômé de Julliard School, Lee Pace obtient l'un des rôles principaux dans le film Soldier's Girl et incarne Calpernia Addams. Tiré d'une histoire vraie, ce film raconte l'histoire d'amour entre Calpernia, une transsexuelle vedette d'un night-club, et un soldat américain. Son interprétation est remarquée et lui vaudra de nombreuses nominations, dont une aux Golden Globes, et une récompense aux Gotham Awards.

Lee a révélé que ce rôle fut un véritable défi, alors qu'il sortait tout juste de l'école d'art dramatique : « Pas même mon excellente formation à Julliard ne m'avait préparé à ce premier rôle, où je devais jouer une transsexuelle qui tombe amoureuse d'un militaire dans Soldier's Girl. Et j'étais ce gars-là, un gamin dégingandé d'1,90 m qui venait de Chickasa, en Oklahoma, et qui n'avait aucune idée de comment faire pour devenir une femme. Donc j'ai regardé des documentaires sur les transsexuels, j'ai perdu 11 kg, et j'ai porté des prothèses en faux seins et en fausses hanches pour devenir ce personnage. Il y avait des fois où je me regardais dans le miroir et je me disais "Qu'est-ce que je suis en train de faire ? Mon père va me tuer !" Mais la raison pour laquelle je me suis engagé à devenir acteur, c'est d'être capable de jouer des rôles aussi complexes et inspirants que celui-ci. Je joue une transsexuelle, et j'ai la chance de pouvoir aider les gens à changer de point de vue sur les autres, et c'est quelque chose d'important. Je joue un bandit fanfaron dans mon prochain film, mais je serai toujours fier de Soldier's Girl. »

Tarsem Singh lui offre l'année suivante le rôle principal dans The Fall après avoir vu Soldier's Girl. À la demande de Tarsem, Lee Pace se fait passer pour un acteur véritablement tétraplégique. Seul Tarsem et la costumière du film savaient qu'en réalité Lee est valide. Ce stratagème a été utilisé pour faciliter et rendre plus authentique le jeu de la jeune Catinca Untaru.

Le 30 avril 2011, Lee est choisi par Peter Jackson lui-même pour jouer le roi elfe Thranduil dans sa nouvelle trilogie, adaptation du roman du JRR Tolkien Le Hobbit. Le réalisateur a confié qu'il a toujours voulu Lee pour ce rôle après l'avoir vu dans le film The Fall.


Télévision
En 2004, Lee Pace joue Aaron Tyler dans Wonderfalls. Acclamée par la critique, la série n'est cependant pas renouvelée et s'arrête au bout de 13 épisodes.

De 2007 à 2009, il tient le premier rôle dans la série à succès Pushing Daisies. Il est nommé à de nombreuses reprises pour son interprétation du timide pâtissier Ned. La série diffusée sur ABC s'étend sur deux saisons, et a réuni une large communauté de fans.

En 2013, il participe à la série Halt and Catch Fire et campe le rôle de Joe MacMillian, un visionnaire qui ne manque pas de ressources et d'ambition au début des années 1980, à l'époque de la révolution informatique. Produite par AMC, la série a été renouvelée pour quatre saisons.

Bilbo and the Dwarves watch from the Lonely Mountain as the dragon Smaug sets Laketown ablaze, and its people flee. Bard the Bowman breaks out of prison, and eventually kills Smaug with the black arrow brought to him by his son Bain. Smaug's falling body crushes the fleeing Master of Laketown, who was escaping Laketown on a boat laden with the town's gold. Bard reluctantly becomes the new leader of the Laketown people as they seek refuge in the ruins of Dale, while Legolas travels to investigate Mount Gundabad with Tauriel. Thorin, now struck with "dragon sickness" over the vast treasure in the mountain, searches obsessively for the Arkenstone, which Bilbo had previously found but kept hidden. Thorin, hearing that people have come to Dale, orders the entrance of the Lonely Mountain sealed off.

Thorin and his company are being pursued by Azog and his Orc party following the events of the previous film. They are ushered along by Gandalf to the nearby home of Beorn, a skin-changer who can take the form of the bear. That night, Azog is summoned to Dol Guldur by the Necromancer, who commands him to marshal his forces for war. Azog then delegates the hunt for Thorin to his son Bolg. The following day, Beorn escorts the company to the borders of Mirkwood, where Gandalf discovers Black Speech imprinted on an old ruin. This coincides with a telepathic message from Galadriel urging him to investigate the tombs of the Nazgûl. He warns the company to remain on the path and leaves them. Upon entering the forest they lose their way and are ensnared by giant spiders. Bilbo then sets about freeing the dwarves with the help of his recently acquired invisibility ring. He subsequently drops the Ring and first begins to understand its dark influence after he brutally kills a centipede-like creature to retrieve it.

Approaching his 111th birthday, the hobbit Bilbo Baggins begins writing down the full story of his adventure 60 years earlier for the benefit of his nephew Frodo. This connects The Hobbit with The Lord of the Rings movie 10 years earlier which had a similar scene. Long before Bilbo's involvement, the Dwarf king Thrór brings an era of prosperity for his kin under the Lonely Mountain, far to the East, until the arrival of the dragon Smaug. Destroying the nearby town of Dale, Smaug drives the Dwarves out of their mountain and takes their hoard of gold. Thrór's grandson Thorin sees King Thranduil and his Wood-elves on a nearby hillside, and is dismayed when they take their leave rather than aid his people, resulting in Thorin's everlasting hatred of Elves.

In January 1865, President Abraham Lincoln expects the Civil War to end within a month. However, he is concerned that his 1863 Emancipation Proclamation may be discarded by the courts once the war has concluded and that the Thirteenth Amendment be defeated by the returning slave states. Lincoln feels it is imperative to pass the amendment by the end of the month, thus removing any possibility that slaves who have already been freed may be re-enslaved. The Radical Republicans fear the amendment will be defeated by some who merely wish to delay its passage; the support of the amendment by Republicans in the border states is not yet assured either, since they prioritize the issue of ending the war. Even if all of them are ultimately brought on board, the amendment will still require the support of several Democratic congressmen if it is to pass. With dozens of Democrats having just become lame ducks after losing their re-election campaigns in the fall of 1864, some of Lincoln's advisors believe that he should wait until the new Republican-heavy Congress is seated, presumably giving the amendment an easier road to passage. Lincoln, however, remains adamant about having the amendment in place and the issue of slavery settled before the war is concluded and the southern states readmitted into the Union.
