Thomas “Tom” Jeffrey Hanks is known to be an American actor and filmmaker known for his dramatic and humorous performances. He is recognized as an American cultural icon and one of the most well-known and recognizable movie stars in the entire globe. The American city of Concord, California is where he was born on July 9, 1956. Hanks acted in several school productions while he was a student at Skyline High School, among them South Pacific. After two years, he switched from Chabot College, where he was studying theater to California State University. Acting classes seemed like the ideal setting for a guy who enjoyed making a lot of noise and being pretty flashy, he told New York magazine in 1986.

Hanks got to know Cleveland, Ohio’s Great Lakes Theater Festival director Vincent Dowling during his time spent studying theater. Hanks joined the festival as an intern on the advice of Dowling. His three-year internship, which included the majority of theatrical production’s features, such as lighting, set design, and stage management, led Hanks to discontinue his studies in college. For his 1978 portrayal as Proteus in Shakespeare’s The Two Gentlemen of Verona—one of the rare times he played a villain—Hanks won the Cleveland Critics Circle Award for Best Actor at the same time. Hanks was listed among the “Top 10 College Dropouts” in 2010 by Time magazine.

Hanks relocated to New York City in 1979, and in 1980 he made his acting debut in the low-budget slasher thriller “He Knows You’re Alone” before landing a leading part in the television picture Mazes and Monsters. He acted in Robert Zemeckis’s Cast Away in 2000, for which he was nominated for an Academy Award and won the Golden Globe for Best Actor for his depiction of a marooned FedEx systems analyst. Hanks came in at number three on Channel 4’s list of the 100 greatest movie stars of all time in 2003. In 2000, 2002, and 2003, he was listed among the top ten most influential celebrities in the world by Forbes.
