Born in Memphis, Tennessee, Freeman was raised in Mississippi where he began acting in school plays. He studied theatre arts in Los Angeles and appeared in stage productions in his early career. He rose to fame in the 1970s for his role in the children's television series The Electric Company. Freeman then appeared in the Shakespearean plays Coriolanus and Julius Caesar, the former of which earned him an Obie Award. His breakout role was in Street Smart (1987), playing a hustler, which earned him an Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actor. He achieved further stardom in the comedy-drama Driving Miss Daisy (1989), which garnered Freeman a second Academy Award nomination, for Best Actor. His other critical successes of 1989 were the war film Glory, and the biographical drama Lean on Me. Freeman made his directorial debut in 1993 with the drama Bopha!, and a year later, appeared in the acclaimed prison drama The Shawshank Redemption. David Fincher's crime thriller Seven (1995), in which Freeman was cast as a detective, also received praise for his performance. Later, he appeared in Steven Spielberg's historical epic Amistad (1997), and the science fiction Deep Impact (1998). In the mid-2000s, he played a former boxer in Million Dollar Baby, joined The Dark Knight Trilogy, and narrated the documentary March of the Penguins. For his portrayal of South African President Nelson Mandela in Invictus (2009), he earned an Academy Award nomination for Best Actor. Freeman joined two film franchises in 2013; the Fallen film series, and the Now You See Me series.
