Until almost the end of 2008, British actor Bill Nighy was one of those faces you couldn’t put a name to.

In his 50s, Nighy hails from the southern outskirts of London, where his father managed a garage in the bleak satellite town of Croydon and his mother was a psychiatric nurse. Bill’s life partner is actress Diana Quick, who, though not as big a star, is perhaps more recognizable than he. Bill had asked Diana to marry him, but she declined the institution if not the man.
