A child prodigy, he made his debut in front of the camera for a commercial for the fabric softener Lenor in 1982. Thereafter, there was no looking back as he was flooded with assignments.
He made a formal debut on stage opposite Rowan Atkinson for the play ‘The Nerd’ in 1984. Two years later, he made his big screen debut playing the character of Tsarevich Alexei Nikolaevich for the film, ‘Anastasia: The Mystery of Anna’.
The overnight stardom and mounting expectations of people backfired as he found it difficult to adjust with the newly-found fame and star status. The following year, he was cast for the role of Jim Hawkins for the TV adaptation of the Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic book, ‘Treasure Island’. He starred opposite Charlton Heston.
The decade of 1990 had many releases schedules for him. While ‘Newsies’ bombed at the box office, film adaptation of the classic ‘Little Women’ had him playing a supporting role. His other film releases include, ‘The Portrait of a Lady’, ‘Velvet Goldmine’.
He did a voice role for Thomas, a young compatriot of Captain John Smith, in Disney’s ‘Pocahontas’ in 1994. In 1999, he was part of the huge star cast for Kenneth Branagh’s updated version of William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

No sooner he won the title role of ‘Batman’ and his alter ego, Bruce Wayne in Christopher Nolan’s ‘Batman Begins’. The film, unlike its predecessors in the category, was a comprehensive hit with packed theatres worldwide. His portrayal of the role with complete perfection earned him a couple of awards.

‘Batman Begins’ was followed by its 2008 sequel, ‘The Dark Knight’, which unlike its forerunner was even a greater box office hit. The movie went on to gross over $1 billion at the box office worldwide, making it the fourth-highest grossing movie of that time.
In 2010, he clinched 30 awards including his first Golden Globe and Academy Award for playing the role of Dicky Eklund in David O. Russell-directed drama film, ‘The Fighter’.
