About this artwork

Alan Cumming is an award-winning actor from Aberfeldy in Perthshire. After leaving school, Cumming worked for a year as a sub-editor at D. C. Thomson Publishers in Dundee before attending the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama (now the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland) in Glasgow. Graduating in 1985, Cumming went on to work extensively in Scottish theatre and TV, before deciding to move to London. He began performing with the Royal Shakespeare Company and it was not long before his film career was launched with Ian Seller’s 1992 film, ‘Prague’. Cumming has since gone on to star in Hollywood blockbusters such as ‘Goldeneye’ (1995) and ‘X-Men 2’ (2003). In 1998 he won a Tony award for his performance in the Broadway show ‘Cabaret’.
