That success inspired Sir Ken to make a further four big screen Shakespeare adaptations - Much Ado About Nothing, Othello, Hamlet and Love's Labour's Lost.

He also directed and starred with Robert De Niro and Helena Bonham Carter in Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, and made a cameo in 2016 comedy Mindhorn.

They divorced when Kenneth was revealed to be having an affair with Helena Bonham Carter, his co-star in Mary Shelley's Frankenstein.

Tom Hardy, Mark Rylance, Cillian Murphy, Harry Styles and James D’Arcy were among Kenneth's co-stars in Christopher Nolan's big screen depiction of the battle.

He is currently married to Lindsay Brunnock, a film art director he met while on set. Kenneth was previously married to Emma Thompson, with whom he had an eight year relationship and six year marriage between 19.

In addition Sir Ken remade the movie Sleuth, directed his own movie version of Mozart's The Magic Flute, and also was at the helm of Disney movies Thor and Cinderella.

On the small screen, Kenneth starred in Scandi crime drama adaptation Wallander as the lead character, troubled and weary detective Kurt Wallander.

The production will only run for three weeks at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art’s (Rada) Jerwood Vanbrugh theatre, a venue that only seats 160 occupants.

To get the very exclusive tickets — which cost £15 for under-25s, £45 and £95 for the rest — you must register to a ballot, which closes Sunday 6 August at 6 pm. "Hamlet presents almost limitless possibilities for interpretation,” Hiddleston, a former RADA student, said.

After a couple of minor movie roles, Sir Ken first burst on to the big screen in his self-directed Shakespeare adaptation Henry V in 1989, also starring then-wife Emma Thompson.

He received two Oscar nominations for Best Actor and Best Director for his work on Henry V.

In 2017 movie Dunkirk, Kenneth played Commander Bolton - who helps rescue the soldiers who were left in trouble in Dunkirk.

Considering nearly 70,000 British soldiers lost their lives during the 1940 Battle Of Dunkirk, when Allied troops were surrounded by the German army, fans were considerably moved by the film.

Sir Kenneth's big 2017 movie comeback is his directorial effort Murder On The Orient Express, following on from the 1974 version starring Albert Finney, and the book by Agatha Christie.
