Sitter in 8 portraits
Stamp made his Oscar-nominated screen debut in Billy Budd (1962), before winning Best Actor at Cannes for The Collector (1965). Staring in Modesty Blaise (1966), opposite Julie Christie in Far from the Madding Crowd, and Carol White in Poor Cow (both 1967), he became an actor who seemed to embody the spirit of the 1960s. After a failed love affair with the model Jean Shrimpton, in 1969 he left for a five year exile to India in a quest for peace and happiness. The late 1970s saw his first appearances as General Zod in the Superman films and Meeting with Remarkable Men (1979). Numerous films since include The Limey (1999) and Song for Marion (2012).
