Alan Cumming was a son of Alex Cumming, the head forester of Atholl Estate, and Mary Darling, an insurance company secretary. Alan grew up with his older brother Tom on the east coast of Scotland, where he went to the Monikie Primary School and Carnoustie High School.

Cumming appeared in various theatre plays before serving as a host of “Masterpiece Mystery” in 1980. He appeared alongside Rowan Atkinson in the TV movie called “Bernard and the Genie” in 1991, and a year later debuted in the feature film “Prague” with Sandrine Bonnaire and Bruno Ganz. In 1993, Alan starred in “Cabaret”, and then he played alongside William Hurt in the drama “Second Best” in 1994. In the mid-‘90s, Cumming had parts in “Circle of Friends” (1995) with Chris O’Donnell and Minnie Driver, Martin Campbell’s BAFTA-nominated “GoldenEye” (1995) starring Pierce Brosnan and Sean Bean, and in the Oscar-winning comedy “Emma” (1996) with Gwyneth Paltrow. He continued with roles in “Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion” (1997) starring Mira Sorvino and Lisa Kudrow, and “Plunkett & Macleane” (1999) with Robert Carlyle, Jonny Lee Miller, and Liv Tyler. Cumming ended the ‘90s with Stanley Kubrick’s Golden Globe Award-nominated “Eyes Wide Shut” (1999) alongside Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman, and in the Oscar-nominated “Titus” (1999) starring Anthony Hopkins and Jessica Lange, all of which only increased his net worth.

In the early 2000s, Cumming appeared in “The Anniversary Party” (2001) alongside Jennifer Jason Leigh, and in “Spy Kids 2: Island of Lost Dreams” (2002). He also played in the Golden Globe Award-nominated “Nicholas Nickleby” (2002), in “X-Men 2” (2003) with Patrick Stewart, Hugh Jackman, and Halle Berry, and “Spy Kids 3-D: Game Over” (2003). Alan had notable roles in Primetime Emmy-winning “Reefer Madness: The Movie Musical” (2005), Oscar-nominated “The Tempest” (2010) with Helen Mirren, Felicity Jones, and Djimon Hounsou, and in Golden Globe Award-winning “Burlesque” (2010) alongside Cher and Christina Aguilera.

From 2010 to 2016, Cumming played Eli Gold in 121 episodes of the hit series “Good Wife”, earning three Primetime Emmy and two Golden Globe nominations. Thanks to his skills and the commercial success of the show, Cumming’s net worth increased significantly. Most recently, Alan starred in “Any Day Now” (2012), and is currently filming “Battle of the Sexes” and “After Louie”, both of which will be released in 2017.

Cumming has also produced and directed several movies, while in 2002 his novel entitled “Tommy’s Tale” came out. In 2014, he published his autobiography – “Not My Father’s Son”, while in 2016 Cumming released his second studio album “Alan Cumming Sings Sappy Songs: Live At The Cafe Carlyle”, all of which endeavors further increased his net worth.

Regarding his personal life, Alan Cumming is bisexual, so has been married to Hilary Lyon(1985-93), and later dated actress Saffron Burrows and theatre director Nick Philippou. In 2012 he married graphic artist Grant Shaffer; together with their dog Jerry, they live in Manhattan, New York. Since 2012, Cumming has been a vegan.

#Quote
1 (On comments by Richard Chamberlain and Rupert Everett about not coming out) "I think it's so mean-spirited. If you're living a lie, that's not healthy, and I think it is really irresponsible of [Chamberlain] and Rupert to say these things...But it's not about your work. It's about how you exist as a person in the world, and the idea that your work is more important than you as a person is a horrible, horrible message. I always think about a little gay boy in Wisconsin or a little lesbian in Arkansas seeing someone like me, and if I cannot be open in my life, how on earth can they? Anyway, it's an academic question: how can you know [that coming out affects your career]? Some people get less work than others and it has nothing to do with sexuality."
2 "My feeling about work is it's much more about the experience of doing it than the end product. Sometimes things that are really great and make lots of money are miserable to make, and vice versa".
3 (On leaving Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark) "My GOD, that was a lucky escape. Jesus Christ! Talk about dodging a bullet there!"
4 (If he'd attend the Oscars) "Oh no, those things aren't much fun. But when I did once go, I got pushed out of the way twice, in one weekend, by Diana Ross. Literally, her hair went into my face. And one of those times, she was pushing me out of the way to get to the dancefloor to dance to one of her own songs. Isn't that just the best?"
5 (Why he left Spider-Man: Turn off the Dark) "Because it just fucked me about. It kept getting delayed and delayed, and so I was like, 'OK, time to move on.'"
6 [on Eyes Wide Shut (1999)] I worked for five days on it. Normally, a scene like that would be shot in half a day or a day. Basically, Kubrick would just let me go, let me play and let me try different things. It was such fun. And every little moment and nuance was important to him, and it was a really good thing for me, because I've done so many films where you sort of arrive, do your shtick and go away. A lot of the time in film, you just sort of wing it, but with him, it felt like you were really, really polishing something to make it as good as it possibly could be. So it was quite a lot of direction for that wee scene. I felt like he wouldn't actually let me go home until it was as good as he thought it could be. It was a really great week of my life. Tom Cruise was faultless - very willing to have a bash at different things. I thought that was really brave of him as well, that he was cool with that. He is obviously pretty sure of himself and confident. We did it so many different ways, and he was so focused every time.
7 [advocating a yes vote for Scottish independence] People who are staunch Labour supporters, have been for generations, like myself, actually, are now realising that the only way to keep the values and to keep the priorities that Labour voters have is with a yes vote.
8 [on Scottish independence] The Better Together campaign is really like ferrets in a sack. Their backs are against the wall. The fear has not been working, the Scottish people are sick and tired of being patronised.
9 [on why he feels well-suited to play Salvador Dali] We share a bonkers gene.
10 I think directing in a team is a really good idea because it stops the cult of the director as God straight away, and also you're discussing things on set so it opens it out to everyone and it becomes a totally collaborative thing. And you have someone who supports you when you're feeling a bit insecure.
11 [on therapy] It's like a workout for the mind.
12 Kids are more genuine. When they come up and want to talk to you, they don't have an agenda. It's more endearing and less piercing to your aura.
13 I love a film where I get squished by two Dumpsters or I fly through the air.
14 Sometimes people get really sniffy about the films you choose if you've done more dramatic projects or you're classically trained.
