Michael Fassbender (born 2 April 1977) is a German–Irish actor of stage and screen whose career includes roles in both independent and blockbuster films. His feature film debut was in the fantasy war epic 300 (2006) as a Spartan warrior; his earlier roles included various stage productions, as well as starring roles on television such as in the HBO miniseries Band of Brothers (2001) and the Sky One fantasy drama Hex (2004–05). He first came to prominence for his biographical role as IRA activist Bobby Sands in the historical drama Hunger (2008), for which he won a British Independent Film Award for Best Actor. Subsequent roles included the independent film Fish Tank (2009), earning his second BIFA nomination; as a Royal Marines lieutenant in the Quentin Tarantino war film Inglourious Basterds (2009); as Edward Rochester in the 2011 film adaptation of Jane Eyre; as psychiatry innovator Carl Jung in historical drama A Dangerous Method (2011); as a sentient android in the Ridley Scott science fiction film Prometheus (2012); and in the musical dramedy Frank (2014) as the title character, an eccentric musician loosely inspired by Frank Sidebottom.

In 2011, Fassbender debuted as the Marvel antihero Magneto in the prequel X-Men: First Class; he would go on to share the role with Ian McKellen in X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014). Also in 2011, Fassbender's performance as a sex addict in Shame received critical acclaim. He won the Volpi Cup for Best Actor at the Venice Film Festival and was nominated for
Golden Globe and BAFTA Awards. In 2013, his role as slave owner Edwin Epps in slavery epic 12 Years a Slave was similarly praised, earning him his first Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actor. 12 Years a Slave marked Fassbender's third collaboration with Steve McQueen, who also directed Hunger and Shame. In addition to Prometheus, Fassbender has appeared in another film by Ridley Scott: The Counselor (2013). He portrayed Steve Jobs in the Danny Boyle-directed biopic of the same name (2015). As well as acting, Fassbender produced the 2015 western Slow West which he also starred in.

Biography

Shifting between European and North American films, Fassbender resides in east London, where he has lived since 1996.
Fassbender still lives in the same modest flat in Hackney, East London, that he has owned since his late 20s, when he was struggling to get enough work to make ends meet. He speaks German, though he stated before filming Inglourious Basterds that he had needed to brush up a bit on his spoken German because it was a bit rusty. He has also expressed interest in performing in a German language film or theatre production one day. He is a lapsed Catholic.


Relationships
In 2011, Fassbender was in a brief relationship with actress Zoë Kravitz, whom he met on the set of X-Men: First Class. Fassbender confirmed he was seeing Nicole Beharie, his co-star in Shame in 2012, though by early 2013 the couple confirmed they had split. In September 2013, Fassbender started dating actress and model Mădălina Diana Ghenea, but they split in early 2014. Fassbender dated his The Light Between Oceans co-star, actress Alicia Vikander, from late-2014 to September 2015.
