The Films of Danny Dyer - A Working Class British Icon
Danny Dyer is Britain’s most popular young film star. Idolised by Harold Pinter and with his films having taken nearly £50 million at the UK box office, Dyer is the most bankable star in British independent films with one in 10 of the country’s population owning one of his films on DVD. With iconic performances in such cult classics as The Business, The Football Factory, Dead Man Running, Outlaw, and now Vendetta, Dyer is one of the most recognisable Englishmen in the world. For the first time, and with its subject’s full cooperation, this book chronicles his film career in depth, combining production background with critical analysis to paint a fascinating picture of the contemporary British film industry and its brightest star. Packed with anecdotes from co-stars and colleagues, as well as contributions from the man himself, The Films of Danny Dyer is the ultimate companion to the work of Britain’s grittiest star.
