Jim Broadbent was born on 24 May, 1949, in Holton cum Beckering, Lincolnshire, the youngest son of furniture maker Roy Broadbent and sculptress Dee Broadbent. Jim attended a Quaker boarding school in Reading before successfully applying for a place at an art school. His heart was in acting, though, and he would later transfer to the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA). Following his 1972 graduation, he began his professional career on the stage, performing with the Royal National Theatre, the Royal Shakespeare Company, and as part of the National Theatre of Brent, a two-man troupe which he co-founded. In addition to his theatrical work, Broadbent did steady work on television, working for such directors as Mike Newell and Stephen Frears.
   
 
Broadbent made his film debut in 1978 with a small part in Jerzy Skolimowski's ''The Shout'', and made his television debut the following year. He went on to work with Stephen Frears (for television and in ''The Hit'') and Terry Gilliam (in ''Time Bandits'' and ''Brazil'') before establishing himself in Mike Leigh's ''Life Is Sweet'' in 1990. He proved his ability as a character actor in films including ''The Crying Game'', ''Enchanted April'', ''Bullets Over Broadway'', ''The Borrowers'' and ''Little Voice'' before taking a leading role in another Mike Leigh film, ''Topsy-Turvy''. He played "The Shy Doctor" in the 1999 Comic Relief parody ''Doctor Who'' sketch, ''Doctor Who & the Curse of Fatal Death''. In 2001, Broadbent starred in three of the year's most successful films: ''Bridget Jones's Diary'', ''Moulin Rouge!'', for which he won a BAFTA and ''Iris'', for which he won an Oscar for his portrayal of John Bayley.
==Early Life==
 
Broadbent was born in Holton cum Beckering, in Lincolnshire, the second son of Doreen "Dee" Broadbent (née Findlay), a sculptor, and Roy Laverick Broadbent, an artist, sculptor, interior designer and furniture maker. Broadbent's parents were both amateur actors who co-founded the Holton Players acting troupe at Holton. The two have been described by the BBC as conscientious objectors who "worked the land" rather than participate in World War II. In Wickenby, a former Methodist Chapel was purchased in 1970 by Holton Players, who converted it into a 100-seat theatre, named Broadbent Theatre in memory of Roy Broadbent, who designed the conversion. In 2005 he played Brian the snail in the remake of ''[[The Magic Roundabout (film)|The Magic Roundabout]]'' aged 55. He played Roy Slater in ''Only Fools And Horses'' in 1985 & 1991.
 
   
 
Broadbent also appeared as DCI Roy The Slag Slater, an associate character in the enormously popular sitcom ''Only Fools & Horses''. Other comic roles include the lead role in the sitcom ''The Peter Principle'' and occasional guest appearances in ''Not The Nine O'Clock News'' and ''Victoria Wood As Seen On TV''. He played Don Speekingleesh in ''The Queen of Spain's Beard'' in the first series of ''The Black Adder'' in 1983. He also played the role of Prince Albert in ''Blackadder's Christmas Carol'', first broadcast in 1988.
Broadbent had a twin sister who died at birth.

==Career==
 
Broadbent's early stagework included a number of productions for The National Theatre of Brent as the downtrodden assistant Wallace to Patrick Barlow's self-important actor and manager character Desmond Olivier Dingle. Broadbent and Barlow played many male and female character roles in comically less-than-epic tellings of historical and religious stories, such as The Complete Guide to Sex, The Greatest Story Ever Told, Revolution!!, and All The World's A Globe. These were hits at the Edinburgh Fringe, in London, and on tour. Later stage work included the original productions of Kafka's Dick (1986) and Our Country's Good (1988) at the Royal Court Theatre and work for the Royal National Theatre including "The Government Inspector". Work on the stage with Mike Leigh includes Goosepimples and Ecstasy.
