Personal Fact of Rod Steiger

Rod Steiger was an Academy Award winning American actor who was known for brilliant portrayal of offbeat and insane characters. Since his father left them just after his birth he was brought up by his mother, who soon became addicted to alcohol. Initially they moved from town to town, finally settling in Newark. Although he showed an early interest in acting and writing poetry he left home to join US Navy during Second World War mostly because he was fed up of quarreling with his mother.

On being discharged he came home to look after her and slowly began to grow interest in acting. Because of his grave appearance he was initially cast in character roles. Later he began to get lead roles; however, less glamorous, but forceful actors like Paul Muni and Charles Laughton were always his role model. He also liked to play strong characters like Napoleon Bonaparte, Al Capone, Pontius Pilate, WC Fields and Mussolini. Stieger suffered from chronic depression almost throughout his life. However, he never felt stigmatized by it. Instead he believed that depression was caused by chemical imbalance and pain was part of humanity.
