Sunday, May 22, 2011
Dev Patel born 23 April 1990 , he is son of Indian parents who migrated to Kenya in there young age and met in London and married there.
Dev was coasted in Oscar winning movie "slum dog millionaire" he got many awards and appreciation for role he played.
Patel was born in Harrow, England, to Gujarati Indian parents, both of whom were born in Nairobi, Kenya, where there is a significant Indian community.
Performed in school plays as a child.

Began training in Tae Kwon Do at age 10, and eventually attained a black belt.
In high school, drama was his best subject, followed by English.
Was brought to the attention of Slumdog Millionaire director Danny Boyle by Boyle's teenage daughter, who showed her dad an episode of Patel's TV show Skins.

To prepare for his role in Slumdog Millionaire, he spent three months in the slums of Mumbia, India, learning about daily life there and getting to know residents who were the same age as his character. He also trained with a choreographer for the film's conclusion.

Told Entertainment Weekly that he credits his Slumdog Millionaire experience for making him an optimist and helping him mature.
Got the role of Zuko in The Last Airbender by replacing Jesse McCartney, who was originally cast in the role.


 Freida Pinto was signed as the romantic lead opposite Dev Patel for Slumdog Millionaire
he 22-year-old actress wondered if it would look like she was cradle snatching. Dev was just about 17. Now, everyone seems to wonder -- and this was the big question thrown at both of them at their red carpet appearance before the Oscar ceremony -- if the on-screen chemistry has become real-life chemistry.
The gorgeous looking handsome couple did not expect the question, at least it seemed so. Flustered, Dev grabbed Anil Kapoor
who tried to distract everyone from the question, and declared his love for the film, and the Indian movie industry.
Pressed more about their romance, Freida said like his character in the movie, Dev was just a kid.
