Irish stage and film actor. He holds the record for the most Academy Award acting nominations without a win. Note that he was given an Honorary Academy Award in 2003 for his lifetime contributions to film.

O'Toole was born in 1932. Some sources give his birthplace as Connemara, County Galway, Ireland while others cite Leeds in the West Riding of Yorkshire, England. He had a birth certificate from each country. Son of Constance Jane Eliot (née Ferguson), a Scottish[5] nurse, and Patrick Joseph "Spats" O'Toole.

In 1959, he married Welsh actress Siân Phillips, with whom he had two daughters: actress Kate and Patricia. They were divorced in 1979. O'Toole and his girlfriend, model Karen Brown, had a son, Lorcan Patrick O'Toole (born 17 March 1983). O'Toole died on 14 December 2013 at the Wellington Hospital in London, aged 81. His funeral was held at Golders Green Crematorium in London on 21 December 2013, where he was cremated in a wicker coffin.
