Ben Kingsley makes his presence felt in Iron Man 3 as Tony Stark’s iconic nemesis, The Mandarin.
His performance is one of the threequel’s purest pleasures, nailing a contemporary take on the comic-book villain.
And of course, Kingsley didn’t earn the ‘Sir Ben’ tag for nothing, notching up a variety of roles on an eclectic CV since bagging an Oscar for his lead role in Gandhi.
