Christopher Hampton
One of Great Britain's most esteemed contemporary playwrights, Chris Hampton is best known in film for his Oscar-winning screenplay for Dangerous Liasons (1988). The film, adapted from his play, also won him a Writer's Guild award. Hampton was born to British parents in the Azores. He was an 18-year-old student at Oxford when he had his first play produced. He earned his reputation for excellence while working as the resident dramatist at the Royal Court in London between 1968 and 1970. While there, he proved himself equally adept at adapting classic literature into plays as well as writing his own. His stage adaptation of Choderlos de Laclos' Les Liaisons Dangereuses brought him international acclaim. The young playwright's first screenplay was an adaptation of Ibsen's A Doll's House (1973). Hampton would not write another screenplay until he co-wrote Geschicten aus dern Weiner Wald/Tales From the Vienna Wood with Maximillian Schell (1979). In 1986, Hampton tried his hand at directing with the made-for-TV movie Hotel du Lac. Back in theater, Hampton earned acclaim for the libretto for Andrew Lloyd Webber's musical adaptation of Billy Wilder's classic film Sunset Boulevard (1950). ~ SB
