Leslie Nielsen – Biografija

Leslie William Nielsen, OC (Regina, Saskatchewan, 11. februar 1926. – Fort Lauderdale, Florida 28. novembar 2010.), kanadsko-američki komičar i glumac. Bio je najpoznatiji po ulogama u filmovima Ima li pilota u avionu? i trilogiji Goli pištolj.

Rodio se u mjestu Regina, kanadske pokrajine Saskatchewan. Otac Ingvard bio je Danac i Kanađanin, a majka Maybelle, bila je Velšanka. Njegov brat Erik bio je zamjenik kanadskog premijera tokom 1980-ih. Leslie je nećak pokojnog glumca Jeana Hersholta. Nakon što je završio srednju školu, priključio se Kanadskom vazduhoplovstvu gdje je jednu godinu služio kao repni strijelac, ali nije vidio borbe u Drugom svjetskom ratu.

Nakon rata, našao je posao kao disc jockey na jednoj radio stanici u Calgaryu. Ondje je radio jedno vrijeme, a zbog talenta primijećen je, te je dobijao uloge pripovjedanja u dokumentarcima i reklamama. Sam se osvrnuo na to razdoblje rekavši da “tu nije bilo mnogo zlata, dobijali smo od 75 do 100 dolara po emisiji”.

Već 1950. godine imao je 50 nastupa u raznim oblicima glumačkog posla. Pojavio se u filmu Zabranjena planeta, naučnoj fantastici.

Tokom karijere snimio je mnogo filmova, s različitim uspjesima i kod kritike, i kod publike. Jedan je kritičar rekao da oni koji ga vole ne gledaju filmove nakon Ima li pilota u avionu? i trilogije Goli pištolj.

Snimio je i film koji je režirao Mel Brooks, u kojem je parodirao lik grofa Drakule.

Nielsen je odlikovan Redom Kanade, a ženio se 4 puta. Iz drugog braka ima dvoje djece. Obožavao je igrati golf te je o tome snimio i 4 videokasete. Po humoru mu je ličio i George Gaynes.
