Born into a family of professional variety of actors, little Charlie knew from childhood stage. He quickly realized that like the changing audience, and further generous gifts to the audience a charming smile, the apparent naivety, the naivety in passing, giving, however, to feel the breadth of his soul.
Charlie Chaplin drank in his lifetime all. At the age of 12 he lost his father (Chaplin Sr. was drinking and died when he was 37 years old), mother was seriously ill, and then lost his mind. Charlie and his younger brother sid was in the workhouse, where he learned what poverty and hunger.
Innate artistry Chaplin had allowed him to choose the path of life. After working in the print shop, newsagent, a physician assistant, a 14-year-old boy was lucky. He got a permanent job in the local theatre and even got a small role of the messenger in the play 'Sherlock Holmes'.
