Michael Fassbender is a German-Irish actor who made his screen debut in the 2001 war drama miniseries Band of Brothers as Sgt. Burton "Pat" Christenson.[1] Fassbender followed this with a number of television roles including a German motorcycle courier in the drama Hearts and Bones (2001),[2] Guy Fawkes in the miniseries Gunpowder, Treason & Plot (2004), Lt. Harry Colebourn in the film A Bear Named Winnie (2004), and Azazeal in the series Hex (2004–05). He made his film debut playing a Spartan soldier in Zack Snyder's 300 (2007).[3][4] The following year Fassbender portrayed Irish republican Bobby Sands during the events of the 1981 Irish hunger strike in Steve McQueen's historical drama Hunger.[5] His performance garnered him the Best Actor award at the British Independent Film Awards, and the Irish Film and Television Awards.[6][7]

Fassbender appeared as a British soldier in Quentin Tarantino-directed film Inglourious Basterds (2009). Two years later, he played Carl Jung in David Cronenberg's A Dangerous Method, and a man suffering with sex addiction in McQueen's Shame.[8] His performance in the latter earned him the Volpi Cup for Best Actor at the Venice Film Festival.[8] In the same year he also appeared in superhero film X-Men: First Class as Magneto. In 2013, Fassbender reteamed with McQueen on the period drama 12 Years a Slave. For his role as a slave owner in the film he received a nomination for the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor.[9] The following year, he reprised his role as Magneto in the superhero sequel X-Men: Days of Future Past which grossed a box-office total of over $747 million—his highest grossing release as of April 2016.[10] In 2015, he appeared as the title character in Justin Kurzel's film adaptation of the play Macbeth. In the same year, Fassbender's portrayal of Steve Jobs in Danny Boyle's eponymous film garnered him a nomination for the Academy Award for Best Actor.[11]
