Birthday Boy: Michael Fassbender

On the 2nd of April, Michael Fassbender celebrates his birthday.


Fassbender was born in Heidelberg, Germany, but he was raised in Killarney, Ireland, where his parents ran a restaurant.

The 41-year-old actor started his movie/TV acting career at the turn of the century, appearing in TV series Hearts and Bones (2001).
