Date of Birth : Jan 29th 1968
Started out in show business as an errand boy for “Entertainment Tonight”, Edward Burns has made it on to the big screen and even owns his own production compay with brother Brian Burns.
Burns is known for his acting work on movies such as Saving Private Ryan, Confidence and Life or Something Like It.
Looking For Kitty (2004), which Burns wrote, directed and starred in, was shot with a hand held $3,000 digital Panasonic AG-DVX100 camera with a Mini35 adapter. The film’s entire budget was $200,000 and was filmed in New York City with a tiny crew and without standard permits. Burns discussed this unusual film-making process in the director’s commentary on the DVD and wrote in the Director’s Letter “If you are an aspiring filmmaker, in this day of inflating budgets and runaway production, the truth is you can make a movie for no money in New York…and have a blast.”
His younger brother Brian Burns is a TV producer and he and Edward own their own production company called ‘Irish Twins’.
Burns has been married to supermodel Christy Turlington since June 7, 2003; their daughter Grace was born in October 2003 and their son Finn in February 2006.
