Birthplace: Omaha, Nebraska
Academy Award-winning actor whose inward-looking style and rough but sexy appeal established him as one of Hollywood's most respected actors. Brando, a practitioner of Method acting, appeared in A Streetcar Named Desire (1951), On the Waterfront (1954) and The Godfather (1972). He won the Best Actor Oscar for The Godfather but refused the award in protest of Hollywood's treatment of Native Americans.
