He made a montage of Shakespeare’s Hamlet at the National Theater. During his professional career he has had to acquire many skills and abilities, also make several physical changes. The last Mohican was an example of that.

In 1993 he was with Jim Sheridan In the name of the father, it is the true story of a father and son who were unjustly imprisoned for alleged membership in the IRA.

It was a blockbuster and critics confirmed it. The film received twelve nominations and was nominated for an Oscar. In the end, he took a statuette to the best art direction, and Day-Lewis third Oscar, for his interpretation of Abraham Lincoln.
