Colin Farrell biography
The son of Rita and Eamon Farrell, Colin James Farrell was born on May 31, 1976, in the Dublin neighbourhood of Castleknock.
His father owned a health food store and played football for Shamrock Rovers FC. Tommy Farrell, his uncle, was a player with Shamrock Rovers.
He has two sisters, Claudine (who currently serves as his personal assistant) and Catherine, as well as an elder brother named Eamon Jr. He attended St. Brigid’s National School, the exclusive all-boys private Castleknock College, and Gormanston College in County Meath before finishing his education.
Around this period, he tried out in vain for the boy band Boyzone. He was moved to tears by Henry Thomas’ portrayal of E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial in 1982, which gave him the idea to try acting.
He enrolled in the Gaiety School of Acting with his brother’s support, but left after getting the role of Danny Byrne in the BBC drama Ballykissangel.
At the age of 18, Farrell was traveling in Sydney when he was named a suspect in an attempted homicide investigation.
His only defense was a friend’s notebook, which revealed that the two had been using MDMA on the opposite side of town that night, explaining why the police drawing of him looked so much like him and how he had even admitted to passing out during the incidental night.
Colin Farrell children, James and Henry
After settling down for a while, Colin and American model Kim Bordenave welcomed their first child, James Padraig Farrell, in 2003.
However, things changed when the actor revealed in 2007 that James had been given an Angelman syndrome diagnosis.
Developmental delay, an exuberant temperament, and an apparent lack of speech are the hallmarks of this very uncommon genetic condition.
After their brief separation, Colin and Kim began dating Polish actress Alicja Bachleda-Curu, with whom he had his second child, Henry Tadeusz Farrell, in 2009.
