Recounting the Memories of the Past
Edward Harrison Norton is quite an exceptional guy considering that he is not only an actor but also a screenwriter, film director and producer. Some of his notable films include Kingdom of Heaven, The Illusionist and The Incredible Hulk (however according to Wikipedia he won’t be back for the role of hulk in the 2012 film The Avengers).
Apart from his commitment in the glittery Hollywood scene, Norton also engaged in an environmental and social activities. In July 2010, Norton designated as the United Nations Goodwill Ambassador for Biodiversity by United Nation Secretary General Ban Ki-moon.
He was born and raised in Columbia, Maryland near Baltimore. He graduated from Columbia’s Wilde Lake High School in 1987. He attended Yale University, where he was a competitive rower and acted in university productions, graduating in 1991 with a Bachelor of Arts in History.
Norton is such a class act and down-to-earth guy who has said, “If i ever have to stop taking the subway, I’m gonna have a heart attack.” I’m sure he tries to live as normal as he can even though its hard to live life as a celebrity especially all the attention from the media he gets.
