He has been nominated for the Academy Award for Best Actor three times and won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for his performance in The Deer Hunter.

Walken was born on March 31, 1943, in Astoria, Queens, New York City, the second of three sons of Rosalie (née Russell; 1916–1991), a former beauty pageant queen, and Paul Wälken (1913–1976), a German-born baker and former sailor. His father owned a bakery in Astoria and his mother was a former Miss Queens. He has two brothers, Kenneth and Glenn. He was raised Methodist.

Walken attended PS 41 in Astoria. He then enrolled at the Professional Children’s School, where he studied drama. His mother enrolled him in dance classes at an early age to help him overcome his shyness. As a teenager, he worked as a lion tamer in a circus.

Walken’s film debut was in the 1968 film The Anderson Tapes, playing a small role. In 1971, he appeared in an episode of the television series Kojak. He also had small roles in the 1973 films The Happiness Cage and Catch-22. In 1974, he appeared in The Godfather Part II as Michael Corleone’s brother-in-law and consigliere, Merle Johnson.

Walken began his career on stage in 1949, when he made his professional debut as a member of the cast of Shakespeare’s The Merchant of Venice at the New York City’s Public Theater. He has since appeared in numerous Broadway productions, including A View from the Bridge, The Lion in Winter, Dancing at Lughnasa, True West, and Burn This. Off-Broadway, he has appeared in plays including The Three Musketeers, The Tempest, Romeo and Juliet, Macbeth, and Othello. He has also appeared in several television shows and movies.

Walken’s film career began in 1971 with a small role in Catch-22. He has since appeared in over 70 films, including Annie Hall, The Deer Hunter, The Prophecy, True Romance, Catch Me If You Can, and The Wolf of Wall Street. He has been nominated for the Academy Award for Best Actor three times and won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for his performance in The Deer Hunter.

#Marks / Signs
1Often plays criminals and crime bosses
2Deep gravelly voice
3These days his hair is always greased back or standing up
4Frequently plays very calm, restrained individuals with immense capacities for violence
5Distinctive, clipped delivery
6Haunting, dark humour filled monologues
7Always tries to work a jig (dance) into his movies


1I really just stay home, except when I go to work... so in that sense I suppose I'm a regular guy.
2Males in all nature, they have their plumage. I always think of my hair as a kind of attention-getting device. You know, it basically says, 'Look at me,' and if you're in show business, that's not such a bad thing. It might be difficult if I worked in an office.
3When I was a kid my parents gave me piano lessons and guitar lessons for a while, but I was never very good at it. I have big, sort of awkward hands. It's hard to keep going when you don't get any better.
4[on protecting Bonny the dog from Seven Psychopaths (2012) at the Toronto International Film Festival] There was this huge guy standing next to me yelling, 'Let me pick her up.' And I'm protecting the dog, thinking, 'If you touch that dog, I will crack you right in the face.'
5Somebody once said that 80 percent of directing actors is casting them in the first place. So you hope that they hired you because you have some particular quality that is going to be useful to them in the movie. Good directors usually hire you and then they kind of leave you alone.
6My life is anything but eccentric. I've been married for forty-six years and I pay all my bills, and I live in a house where the lawn is always cut and I'm nice to my cat.
7[on acting] There's a playpen aspect. When it's good, it's always there. You're a bit like kids, and you're in a sandbox, and you're making it up - or you think you are. A good director really is like a lifeguard. He sits on a big chair and he's got all these crazy kids in the sandbox and they're playing. Every once in a while, one of them slips or falls out of the sandbox or whatever, and a good director just picks him up and puts him back inside and proceeds.
8[on what some see as quirky vibes in his performances] I was, in a sense, raised by musical-comedy people: gypsies, comics. It makes you almost from another country. And I think that in movies that strangeness almost easily translates into menacing or malevolent. When people do my voice and imitate me, I think it's almost that they're making fun of my accent. I grew up with people who spoke English as a second language. It could be I have an accent.
9[on playing Stanley in 'A Streetcar Named Desire'] When I screamed ''Stella!' they couldn't stop laughing.
10[rules to live by] Take care of yourself - eat good, sleep, not too much stress. Don't be greedy!
11[on making "Weapon of Choice"] I had made a musical called Pennies from Heaven (1981). The director of the video, Spike Jonze, saw that and said, 'Christopher can dance. Ask him to do the video.' I rehearsed the dance every day for three weeks with the choreographer. Then, we went to the location. We shot very quickly. I think we made the whole thing in 12 hours.
12[on airports] I can't stand going to the airport. I avoid it as much as I can. I just can't stand it, it's really an ordeal. And if it's an international flight, and you have to fill out those immigration cards? Stay home!
13I asked this girl to go to the prom and she said she would but that she had a boyfriend, an older guy. Then she took out her wallet and showed me a picture of this handsome guy with the hair, the teeth, who looked like a Greek statue. I thought, All right, and then I asked to see it again and said, "This is not a photograph. You cut this out of a magazine." She got farmisht and said, "Yes, you're right, I did. I'm so madly in love with him. His name is Elvis Presley." She went with me to the prom. I had her in a compromising position. That's what you get for lying.
14I know what I'm doing onstage. But in films I have to depend on the kindness of strangers.
15[on his style] Garish. Especially when I was younger -- I was always a bit exotic. Never wore a hat because the hair was more important.
16If somebody were to do the story of my life, not that anybody would, it would be about my wife and me around the house. It would be like watching paint dry.
17When it's wet, I stick it up with some gunk and walk around and let the air dry it and then it stays there. I have good hair. I have a lot of hair. Whatever I do must be good for it, because I've still got so much. Every time I meet guys I went to school with, they've got no hair.
18I use punctuation, but I finish the sentence and put [in] a period but it's not necessarily where somebody else would. I think everybody should talk the way they want. You go to school and you all sit there and all learn to do the same thing. I guess it's necessary but it's too bad also, in a way. Kids, you know, get kind of restrained in a lot of ways. I probably wouldn't get a job as an English teacher.
19[In 1993] I never was a big fan of school, to tell you the truth. I never had kids, but I suspect if I did, I wouldn't encourage them to go to school. I never liked it myself. I was always grateful for being taught to read. I figured that once that had been done for me, that's the big thing. A little bit of adding, subtracting, multiplying, that sort of thing. And you have to learn to write, at least a letter. But beyond that, I think people are over-educated. I think education will come if you want it. I read what I want to read, so that's what I know about. You can't know everything, so you should concentrate on what you're interested in. The whole concept of general education-I think it makes for vague minds.
20{On his home in Wilton, CT] At night I have possums, skunks, lots of raccoons. They come right in the house, through the cat door, and they bring their babies in. I get up at night and they're in the kitchen, eating all the cat food.
21There are just certain roles - well, they never ask me to play the guy that gets the girl, even though I've been married for 41 years now, so I did get the girl.
22My weakness as a director was if somebody would ask me something I'd say, "Just do whatever you want". My impression is that a director must be a little like a general. You'd hate me to be running a war because I wouldn't know what anybody is doing.
23[on taking clothes from movie sets] For example, [Batman Returns (1992)], when I was shooting it I got very interesting clothes and accessories. On my last day of shooting I had already thought a long time about what I would like to take with me. I had some beautiful cuff links. When I had finished my last scene and went back to my dressing room everything was already gone. Everything!
24Well, I missed the boat on computers. I think I was really just on the cusp. If I had been a little bit younger, I probably would have a computer. But when they came along, it looked so boring to me that I just never bothered. But also when something is ubiquitous, it's almost redundant. I don't have a wristwatch either because if I need to know what time it is, I ask somebody. I got stuck in an airport a while ago, and I always carry quarters so that I can use the payphone, and I tried all these payphones and they just didn't work. I guess nobody uses them anymore. And somebody asked: "Would you like to use my cell phone?" There are enough of them around. If I need to know something about something, I say to my wife: "Can you check this out on your computer", and she comes back within ten minutes with the information. I use it, I just don't have it.
25Morning is the best time to see movies.
26I remember once, years ago, I was walking out a door - I'd been having a conversation and I was walking out the door, and this guy said to me, "Chris," and I stopped and I turned, and he said, "Be careful." And I never forgot that. And it comes back to me often: Be careful. That was good advice.
27That's supposed to be a fact, that the question mark is originally from an Egyptian hieroglyph that signified a cat walking away. You know, it's the tail. And that symbol meant - well, whatever it is when they're ignoring you.
28My father was a lesson. He had his own bakery, and it was closed one day a week, but he would go anyway. He did it because he really loved his bakery. It wasn't a job.
29I used to love Danish. My father used to make a Boston cream pie. You never see that anymore. Very good.
30Most of the jobs I get are basically very unwholesome people. There's always something wrong with the guy, and sometimes something deeply wrong. I'm tired of that. I tell my agent I want a Fred MacMurray part. I want a part where I have a wife and kids and a dog and a house, and my kids say to me, "What do you think I should do, Dad?" and I say, "Be careful."
31I always figured that if I'm gonna be playing these people, that there should be this relationship to the audience that is very clear. "That's Chris, and look at Chris having a good time, wanting to take over the world and sink California and shoot everybody in the room" - just so long as they understand that that's Chris on the set having fun. And that Chris wouldn't really do anything like that.
32I love spaghetti. And I like to cook spaghetti. And I used to eat it every day. I weighed thirty pounds more than I do now. You can't - you can't do that. Ice cream - I love to watch television and eat ice cream. But that's like a ten-year-old. I can't do that anymore. Beer. Beer, spaghetti, ice cream.
33When you're onstage and you know you're bombing, that's very, very scary. Because you know you gotta keep going - you're bombing, but you can't stop. And you know that half an hour from now, you're still gonna be bombing. It takes a thick skin.
34I had an agent when I first got into the movies who said to me, "You're gonna be in Los Angeles now once in a while. If somebody invites you to a party, don't go. Stay in your room, go to the movies." And I have a feeling I know sort of what he meant: Don't show your face around too much. Let 'em be a little glad to see you.
35It all happened when I did The Deer Hunter (1978)]. Suddenly - I'd already been in show business for thirty years, and nothing much had happened. I mean, I really was laboring in obscurity, and then suddenly this movie. It was kind of infectious, and I really did become rather social. Gregarious. And that lasted, I don't know, ten years.
36Sometimes I look at this watch and I think, "There's some guy that puts these little screws in there?" There is something about it. I'm not into cars, either, but there is something about a really magnificent car.
37They say that the human smile is in fact one of those primordial things - that in fact it's a showing of teeth, that it's a warning. That when we smile, in a primeval way it has to do with fear.
38There's something dangerous about what's funny. Jarring and disconcerting. There is a connection between funny and scary.
39When I was a kid, there was someone in my family, an adult, and whenever I saw them, they would say, "You got a lotta nerve." From the time I was a little kid, it was always like, "Heh, heh, heh - you got a lotta nerve." I always thought, What does that mean? But then when I got older, I thought that it was an instruction. If you tell a kid something, it sticks. I think I do have a lot of nerve. But, I mean, I think I maybe got it from that person who said it to me.
40I don't like zoos. Awful.
41Professional dancers don't go dancing.
42Golf. My God, that's a mysterious occupation. I know people who are - good friends - who are absolutely smitten, practicing their swing and talking about it. I can understand some sort of sport where your body got a benefit, like marathon running or bicycle racing. That's not golf. And not only that, but the whole business of standing in the sun - my God. That's like torture.
43Me and Dennis Hopper, when we were doing that scene in True Romance (1993), it was hilarious. It really was - including shooting him. All that laughing was real. He was killing me. And all the guys around us - that was a very cracking-up day.
44[on Quentin Tarantino] Movie scripts are usually pretty loose - things usually change a lot. But not with Quentin. His scripts are absolutely huge. All dialogue. It's all written down. You just learn the lines. It's more like a play.
45I would make a very bad killer in real life because I don't think I could even pick up a gun, much less actually shoot one. Guns make me very nervous. They're dangerous. I'm more of a pacifist than anyone could imagine.
46People think that my favorite roles to do are villains, but I find comedy to be the most challenging and rewarding.
47I think that movie sets when they're good, are a lot like sandboxes.
48{On his process of acting] You know. it's really tricky. People have no idea. How do you do it? Most of the time I don't. I mean, I can't. You just do it as well as you can. And, hopefully, you did some good stuff here and some good stuff there. The best part is going home in the car at the end of the day, and thinking, "I was good".
49With stage fright you keep on doing it and eventually the fear goes away. If you stick around long enough you become very hard to intimidate. It is very difficult to make me nervous about working these days. There have been so many times when I thought I was finished, but it was not true - you just keep going. I am scared of sickness, pollution and crazy people but, work-wise, there is nothing to frighten me.
50[on why he hates not to be working] When I don't have any work sometimes, a kind of thing sets in where my mind shuts down. It's almost like hibernation. It's not that I'm unhappy, but I'm not thinking anything. Then I'll go and watch television. And after an hour or two, I'll think, "You're just sitting there watching television and it's not even interesting". And there's nothing to do. Life becomes meaningless.
51What I used to do was, I'd get the script and see who the character was - a spy, a lumberjack, whatever - then I'd try to dress the part for the audition, to give the impression that I was tough or funny or whatever the part seemed to call for. That was always a disaster. I would never get the job. If I learned anything it's not to do anything like that. Now if they want to look at me, I go in and let them look at me. Let them figure out their own reasons for why they'd want to hire me.
52[on how he memorizes lines and prepares for a role] What I do has a lot to do with the words. My favorite thing is to have two scripts at the same time, and study them simultaneously in the kitchen. Go over the words, over and over, do them different ways, different inflections and rhythms. For me, rhythm is very important. I think we express ourselves as much with rhythm as with the words. It's not what you say, it's how you say it. I think it's very true. If you start to say your lines and it sounds right, usually I stick with that. If it sounds right, it probably is right. It's curious, how you're not collaborating with anyone at that point, and by the time you get there with other actors on the set, usually what you've done at home makes sense, and it's acceptable to everybody. The thing I have trouble with, because I'm so dependent on knowing my lines, is that if suddenly somebody says, "Here's a big speech. You're going to do that instead," I get lost. At that point, I understand why Marlon Brando loves cue cards.
53There were years when I didn't do anything but collect unemployment. I worked a lot, but I worked for nothing. I worked for 15 years as a kind of janitor at the Actors Studio. I would do manual things. I did lots of plays, theater workshops, for nothing.
54People always comment about my hair. It is unusual for a man my age to have so much.
55[on if he does research to prepare for a role] No. The soul is in the words, comes from the words, not research. [Research is] useless, waste of time. And exhausting. I just don't know how to do it. I only know my own experiences. People are completely mysterious to me. Even in my own family I have no idea what any of them are thinking.
56{on what makes him choose parts] Lots of things. The script, the directors, the location, the actors, how much are they going to pay me? How long is it going to take?
57I've always been a character actor, although I'm not quite sure what that means. All my scripts are absolutely covered in notes, so any time I say anything - even "pass the salt" - I have six subtexts, comments on what I really mean when I'm saying that. Maybe that's what gives the impression that I'm saying one thing and thinking something else.
58I'm serious. I do not like the unknown or the unexpected. I cannot stand being surprised, yet as an actor I like surprise. I get very upset if my bills aren't paid immediately.
59I would like to be a very old man and still be acting. So I feel lucky to have stuck around for this long. You have to be good and all that, but you also have to be lucky. I guess in everything. But especially if you're an actor. So I got no complaints.
60I won't do commercials either.  I don't want to sell anything.  As an actor, it's tricky.  You have this platform and it has to do with your face, your charisma.  It's tricky when you endorse something because people are liable to believe you.  Be careful.
61I was already 35 years old, and I'd been in show business for 30-plus years, and suddenly there was this big movie and I was getting an Oscar, and this enormous thing happened. In Annie Hall (1977), I played the strange brother who wanted to drive into oncoming cars. Immediately after that was The Deer Hunter (1978), where I played this nice guy who shoots himself in the head. Something happened there. The fact that they came so close together, and they were both important movies, two big public things where I was simultaneously . . . "disturbed". That got the ball rolling for me in terms of being an actor.
62{On Pulp Fiction (1994)] I put aside an hour every day to go over that monologue again and again for months, and every time I got to the end of it, I would crack up.
63I have this theory about words. There's a thousand ways to say "Pass the salt". It could mean, you know, "Can I have some salt?" or it could mean, "I love you.". It could mean, "I'm very annoyed with you". Really, the list could go on and on. Words are little bombs, and they have a lot of energy inside them.
64I have been in movies that I thought I wasn't very good in. I think, "Chris, don't let your mouth hang open like that next time. Look at that facial tic. Don't walk in such a self-conscious way!" But sometimes, I watch myself and I think that I am terrific--and that is really nice.
65[on his routine] I get up early, at six or seven, and have coffee. I usually read in the morning. And then, if I have a script, I do that for a while. Then I exercise at a certain time. About noon. I like to cook, so usually, I'll be making something. And I have my script. My favorite thing is to have two scripts. It's great to study two things at the same time.
66I eat the same things all the time: fish, hardly ever meat. Chicken, vegetables. I'm fond of steamed sea bass over leeks. I don't drink hard liquor. I like wine.
67I don't particularly like to do anything dangerous. And here I was in Bangkok [filming The Deer Hunter (1978)]. I was in the jungle and in the mountains. Being an actor has taken me places that I never would have gone to . . . It's been a very interesting life.
68[on guns] I don't even like holding them. Whenever I hold a gun, I want to get it out of my hand as quick as possible.
69[on how he selects his acting roles] I don't choose that much. I just sort of take what's there. I don't have much else to do. I don't have a lot of hobbies. I don't play golf. I don't have any children. Things that occupy people's time. I just try to take jobs. I basically work so much because I'm lazy.
70I believe in saving money. I believe in having a house. I believe in keeping things clean. I believe in exercising. Slow and steady is a very good thing for me. It works for me.
71Careers are not often as chosen as people think they are. People talk to me about my choices. I don't make choices, hardly. Things happen, and you say yes or no - usually 'yes', because it's always better to do something. What's the choice? Somebody will say, 'Don't do that part, you don't need to do that part.' And I'll say, 'Why not? What am I going to do? Sit around the house? I'd much rather go to work, and see actors, and have fun.
72Back home, I do the same things every day. Exactly the same. I eat at the same time, I get up at the same time, I do the same things in the same order. I read. I have coffee. Then I study my scripts, I exercise on the treadmill, I make myself a little something to eat. I am a great believer in the Mediterranean diet.
73I've enjoyed making movies for lots of different reasons. Sometimes, it was the other people. Sometimes, it was the fact that I was really good in it. Sometimes, it was the location. Sometimes, it was the paycheck. Sometimes, it can be lots of different things, or a lot of those things. Or there can be reasons why you'd like to avoid it the next time. Like the jungle. I've made a couple of movies in the jungle, and I don't want to go back to the jungle.
74Bear costumes are funny... Bears as well.
75I used to be prettier than I am, but I think I look better now. I was a pretty boy. Particularly in my early movies. I don't like looking at them so much. There's a sort of pretty thing about me.
76I always think that in movies or on stage, two people can be talking to each other - the audience doesn't necessarily have to know what they're talking about, just so long as they know that *you* know what you're talking about.
77I think that a good movie creates its own world, and that world needn't refer to anything that's real. If it's consistent, if it's entertaining, if it's interesting, it justifies its being there.
78At its best, life is completely unpredictable.
79Emotional power is maybe the most valuable thing that an actor can have.
80I can't imagine being somebody else. And anything I play, my reference is completely from the planet Showbusiness. I don't know anything about anybody else, people that I've known all my life - my family, my brothers - I don't know... I only know about me.
81If you want to learn how to build a house, build a house. Don't ask anybody, just build a house.
82My hair was famous before I was.
83Is typecasting really a problem?
84I make movies that nobody will see. I've made movies that even I have never seen.
85I don't need to be made to look evil. I can do that on my own.

50At the time of filming The Rundown (2003), he had never seen the film Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory (1971), and was therefore reluctant to use the phrase "Oompah Loompah" in his final scene. When learning of this, director Peter Berg gave him a copy of the film, and he finally decided to use the phrase.
