Early yearsRalph Nathaniel Twisleton-Wykeham-Fiennes was born in Ipswich on December 22, 1962. The boy was the first-born in the family of a writer Jennifer Lash and photographer Mark.

Fiennes is a dedicated fan of James Bond: in his childhood, he spent all pocket money on accessories and books about an agent of the British Special Forces. After learning about the role, his brothers and sisters laughingly talked about their hope that the current fee will cover those children’s spending.
While working on the film called «The Grand Budapest Hotel» (2014) directed by Wes Anderson, Ralph relied on the image of a real concierge from the Brown’s Hotel in London, who he often watched. This character was named as one of the best in the career of the actor, and Fiennes was again nominated for the Golden Globe.
