Childhood and Early Life

Michael Caine was born on March 14, 1933, in London as Maurice Joseph Micklewhite. His father, named Maurice Joseph Micklewhite, was a porter at the billingsgate fish market and his mother Ellen Frances Marie was a cook and charwoman. From 1952 to 1954, he has also served in the British Army as part of the compulsory national service and took an active part in the Korean War.

On passing his eleven-plus exams in 1944, Michael enrolled at Hackney Down Grocers School(Hackney Downgrocers’ School). However, in 1945 he shifted to Wilson’s Grammar School in Camberwell, where under the guidance of his English teacher he began to take an interest in literature.


Michael Caine began acting in the 1950s, after working several places to realize he needed a lot of renaming in the entertainment industry to succeed. He first became Michael Scot and then inspired by Humphrey Bogart’s film “The Ken Rebellion” (1954), he changed his name to Michael Kane.

In 1956, Michael Kane made his film debut with “Nervousness in Parlor” (Panic in Parlour). But he also played a part of a UN deposit sailor ‘A Hill in Korea’ released in 1956, so he is considered his debut film. He also began to appear in small roles in television series. His first role on television was in ‘ The Adventure of Sir Lancelot ‘.

The first ten years of Kane’s acting life were the toughest. He was in a series of films, television and radio shows as well as stage productions. His big break came in 1963, when he was playing Mef in ‘Next Time I’ll Sing to You’ (Next Time I’ll Sing to You), a cockney comedy in the Bellwether Theatre in Piccadilly.

Stanley Baker, who made the film on the historic battle between the British and Julus, offered him a part of a high-class official in his film “Zulu.” He played several roles for TV and film on the epic film Zulu Zulu (1964) with his presence as a high-class English official with international fame. On January 22, 1964, the premiere ‘Zulu’, received extremely positive reviews and the film also helped Kane to gain international fame.

The film Zulu (1964) Zulu has been told of the epic siege by thousands of Zulu warriors against a British outpost. While fighting for death, the Englishman had managed to hold on against Zulus’ mass attack. However, it was his next film, “The Eptrace File” (1965), which actually made him a star. His portrayal of Harry Palmer earned him his first BAFTA nomination.

The film was extremely successful and Kane received his second Golden Globe Award nomination.

‘The Man Who Will Be King’ (The Man Who Would Be King) (1975), directed by John Houston, is considered one of Michael Kane’s early major works. In the film, he co-starred with Sean Connery and the duo was highly appreciated for his beloved double performance and joker.
