Geoffrey Rush

How do you win an Oscar with less than 20 minutes' screen time? It helps to be Geoffrey Rush, who was charged with playing the adult version of piano virtuoso David Helfgott in the 1996 movie “Shine.” Alex Rafalowicz and Noah Taylor played the child and adolescent versions of his character. Rush grew up in Toowoomba, Australia, and has been nominated for Oscars for his performances in “Quills” and “Shakespeare in Love.”
