休约翰曼格格兰特于1960年9月9日出生在伦敦,是英国著名的演员兼 电影制片人.他曾荣获金球奖、英国电影电视艺术学院奖、以及法国凯撒电影奖。 此外,他还因在《莫里斯的情人》中的出色表现被授予1987年威尼斯电影节最 佳男演员奖,《莫里斯的情人》是由Merchant-Ivory电影公司制作的爱德华七世时 的戏剧,改编自E.M.福斯特的同名小说。格兰特的代表作还有《四个婚礼与一 个葬礼》《理智与情感》和《诺丁山》等。
 
Grant was born in a notable but not very rich family, so he had to finish his school by scholarships. Despite both his parents were children of military families, his family was not always affluent while he was growing up. Grant started his education at Hogarth Primary School in Chiswick. Then he attended Latymer Upper School in Hammersmith from 1969 to 1978,where he was on scholarship, instead he played rugby, cricket and football for the school. Furthermore, he represented the school on the popular quiz show, Top of the Form. He was so intelligent that one of his teacher said that he was “a clever boy among clever boys”. In 1979,he won the Galsworthy scholarship to New College, Oxford,where he studied English literature. Grant was extraordinarily popular at Oxford. Actress Anna has recalled, “I first met Hugh at a party at Oxford Zoo. There was something magical about him. He was a star even then, without having done anything.”
格兰特出生在一个名声显赫但却并不富裕的家庭, 因此他需要依靠获得奖学金完成学业。尽管他的父母都 出身于军人家庭,可是在抚养格兰特的时候家境已经不 再富裕了。格兰特从奇士维克的贺加斯小学开始了他的 学习生涯。随后,他从1969年到1978年在汉默史密斯的 雷特梅中学就读。他代表学校参加橄榄球赛、板球赛和 足球赛,并以此获取奖学金。此外,格兰特还代表学校 参加了收视率极高的电视智力问答节目《精英对抗》。格 兰特太有天赋了,以至于他曾经的一位老师评价他是“聪 明孩子中的佼佼者”。1979年,格兰特争取到了高尔斯华 绥奖学金并进人了牛津大学新学院学习英国文学。他在牛津大学有着出奇旺的人气, 女演员安娜回忆说:“我第一次见到格兰特是在牛津动物园内的晚会上,他有一种 魔力。虽然格兰特那时还没有任何成就,但他已经是大家心目中的明星了。”
 
Although Grant lived in Oxford for a short period of time,it was vital in his whole life. Viewing acting as nothing more than a creative outlet, he joined the Oxford University Dramatic Society. Fortunately, Grant acted in the film Privileged, which was directed by the Department of Theatricals of Oxford in 1982. His outstanding performance received general consent, and soon he starred in a successful touring production of Twelfth Night. From then on, he dedicated himself to art.
格兰特的牛津生活是短暂的,可是对他的一生来说却拥有举足轻重的地位。 在意识到表演其实是一种创造性的输出渠道后,格兰特加人了牛津大学戏剧协会。 1982年,格兰特有幸参加了学校戏剧系制作的影片《牛津之爱》的演出,其出色 的演技获得了大家的一致认可。不久后,他便随着影片《第十二夜》的成功巡演 而成为众所周知的明星。从此,他便投身于演艺事业。
 
After making his debut in Privileged in 1982,Grant dabbled in a variety of jobs. He didn’t only write book reviews, but also comedy sketches for TV shows. He was also hired to write and produce radio commercials for products. He even worked as assistant groundsman at Fulham Football Club. Grant achieved international stardom after appearing in Four Weddings and a Funeral in 1994. Then he performed as a skilled satirical comic talent in quite a lot of moves, such as Mickey Blue Eyes and Notting Hill.
在1982年的影片《牛津之爱》中首次登台亮相之后,格兰特做过很多种工作。 他不仅写过图书评论,而且还为电视节目编写过喜剧素材。他还被雇用为产品写 过无线电商业广告。格兰特甚至为富勒姆足球俱乐部做过球场管理员助理。格兰 特在1994年的《四个婚礼与一个葬礼》中闪亮登场后,一举成为国际巨星。接着, 他以高超的批判性喜剧演员的角色出演了很多部电影,如《求婚脑震荡》和《诺 丁山》。
