American film actor, director, and producer, Nicolas Cage, whose real name is Nicolas Kim Coppola, was born on January 7, 1964, in Long Beach, California. He is the nephew of director Francis Ford Coppola and actress Talia Shire, the cousin of directors Sofia and Roman Coppola and the grandson of composer Carmine Coppola. At 15, Nicolas started on stage during a summer drama workshop at the American Conservatory of Theater in San Francisco. His cinema career began on the set of the film The Outsiders in 1983, directed by his uncle.

With more than 70 films to his credit, the actor surfs between author films like Wild at Heart and Leaving Las Vegas, which offers him a Golden Globe and the Oscar for best actor in 1996, action films like The Rock and Face/Off and blockbusters like Benjamin Franklin Gates and Ghost Rider.

Nicolas Cage Family ties

Young Nicolas Kim Coppola already aware of his charisma when, at 6 years old, he imitated the actors on the road that led him to school. His mother’s choreography and his father professor of literature encouraged him to persevere in this way. The result, he climbs on the boards at the age of 17 and leaves to try his luck in Los Angeles in the process. First decision: to change the surname. Coppola’s aura is too heavy a weight for the young actor, a leaden screed that prevents him from existing by and for himself. Nicolas Coppola then becomes Nicolas Cage, in homage to Luke Cage, a superhero who rocked his childhood.

Nicolas Cage Wedding(s)

On the private side, married between 1995 and 2001 to actress Patricia Arquette, (they divorced 6 years later). Then briefly in 2002 with Lisa Marie Presley. A Korean restaurant waitress whom the actor married in 2004. But in June 2016, the couple announced their separation. On March 23, 2019, the actor married in Las Vegas, Erika Koike, his partner for a year. But on March 27, he asked the court to cancel the marriage.

Nicolas Cage as an Actor

His career launched, Nicolas Cage will alternate roles and genres. In 10 years, he will shoot almost twenty films. We find him in the credits of a delirious comedy (Raising Arizona), a horror film (Vampire’s Kiss), a thriller (Red Rock West), an ersatz of Top Gun (Fire Birds) … The actor demonstrates his ability to change skin and style, without ever losing his strange magnetism. A taste for eclecticism which culminated in 1990 in Wild at Heart, elusive film (David Lynch obliges…) where the fantastic mixes with thriller, road movie, and musical. Nicolas Cage, dressed in a snakeskin jacket, delivers a remarkable composition, always on the verge of explosion. But it was in 1995 that he was officially dubbed by his peers. In Mike Figgis Leaving Las Vegas, his depressive alcoholic interpretation is overwhelming and he logically receives the Oscar for Best Actor.


Eclectic career

In 2003, Nicolas Cage distinguished himself in the dizzying Adaptation of Spike Jonze, for which he was nominated for the Oscar for Best Actor. Then, he plays a cynical arms dealer and cheeky in Lord of War and a mustachioed policeman in the watery World Trade Center. More than ever, he persists in changing roles and pleasures. Thus in 2007, we discover him as a biker returned from hell in Ghost Rider, then as a moving father in Kick-Ass (2010).
