|Personal Fact of Orson Welles|
Orson Welles was an American actor, director and writer, who is known for his remarkable contribution to the mediums of theatre, radio and films. Since his father was an alcoholic and mother died early he had a very troubled childhood and had his first sense of belonging at Todd Seminary where he was enrolled at the age of eleven. There he was initiated into the world of drama by his teacher Roger Hill.
Soon after passing out he went to United Kingdom and appeared for audition claiming to be a Broadway star. He made his stage debut at the age of sixteen at Dublin and came back to USA at the age of eighteen to start a career in acting in a repertory theatre group. He supplemented his income from the stage with radio shows and gradually became a popular figure both at stage and radio.
However, radio remained his favorite till the very end and it was his radio show The War of The World, which introduced him to Hollywood. Unfortunately, film industry was not kind to him in the beginning. Although he had produced master pieces like Citizen Kane at the very start, it took him many years to gain acceptance in Hollywood.
