M_Night_Shyamalan’s Biography


He grew up in Penn Valley, Pennsylvania, (United States). At the age of eight, he was given a Super-8 camera, and as a result of this, his passion for making films imitated his then-hero, Steven Spielberg. At 17 he had made 45 home movies. He studied at the Tisch School of the Arts (TSOA) at the University of New York, and it was around this time that he changed his middle name, Nelliyattu, to Night.

Praying with Anger was his first feature film, and is based in part on his first visit to India since his family immigrated to the US. UU.


The main characteristics of Shyamalan’s cinema are arguments with unexpected twists, a realistic treatment of terror and suspense and the brief appearance of Shyamalan in each of his films. Until now, including The Happening, all his films -except Praying with anger (1992) -, have been shot in Philadelphia or somewhere in the state of Pennsylvania.

The commercial and critical takeoff of Shyamalan was due to The Sixth Sense (with Bruce Willis), a film he directed and produced. It was a great international success and in the USA. UU., And it was the second movie that won the most in 1999. It got six Oscars nominations, among them the best director and the best screenplay.

After this success and the economic success of El Protegido (also starring Willis), they offered to write the fourth part of the Indiana Jones film series – it is known of his admiration for Spielberg, his favorite director, and Hitchcock – and direct the third Harry Potter film, and rejected both offers. He later began producing the film that made him the highest-paid screenwriter in Hollywood when Disney gave him five million dollars for Signs (Signs, 2002). Thanks to this film, it has recreated again in the honeys of success.

In his next two films, The Village (The Forest or The Village, 2004) and La joven del agua (2006), the critique has been divided: some who unconditionally support their cinema, saying that these films surpass the previous ones , and the rest that say that it has initiated a decline of which they expect it to rise.

In June 2008 The Happening premiered. It was initially conceived as The Green Effect, but it was categorically rejected by several studios, until Fox took a look and got the rights to produce it whenever Shyamalan rewrote the script end-to-end. It was the first film of the director who received the classification “Not recommended for children under 18” in the USA. UU.

In 2010 The Last Airbender premiered with an exorbitant budget, based on the animated series Avatar: the legend of Aang. It was released in Spain with the name Airbender, the last warrior and in Latin America as The Last Airbender, by Nickelodeon Movies. Being this one, one of his most notorious failures according to the critic, mainly by his excessive difference with the series of television. The cast of the film was set in 2008 with amateur actors: Nicola Peltz (Katara), Jackson Rathbone (Sokka), one of the protagonists of Twilight (Twilight) and Noah Ringer (Aang). In January 2009 Dev Patel was added to the cast, starring in the multi-awarded film with the Oscar Slumdog Millionaire, replacing Jesse McCartney to play Zuko.

In 2013, After Earth premiered. It was Shyamalan’s first film to co-write the script. The film was produced by Will Smith. Obtained generally negative critics, commenting the performance of the actors and the lack of originality. The website Rotten Tomatoes said that 11% of 189 critics gave the film a positive review, with an average rating of 3.8 / 10. It is undoubtedly the biggest stumbling block of the director’s career. Will Smith himself later accepted that this film had changed his philosophy on how to make films and that he was even about to sink his career.

In January 2014, the completion of Labor of Love was announced. Written and directed by Shyamalan and starring Bruce Willis would be the third film they made together but the project was postponed.

In 2015 he returns with The Visit. Received by the critics once more in a divided way but with more positive than negative criticism, taking a score of 6.9 on the part of the IMDb. Among the cast is: Olivia DeJonge, Ed Oxenbould, Deanna Dunagan. The most positive reviews recognized cinematography, plot and suspense.

He made his television debut in 2015 with the Wayward Pines series. Based on the homonymous novel by Blake Crouch, created by M. Night Shyamalan and Chad Hodge. The series featured 10 episodes. It is worth mentioning the launch of a pilot episode of this series whose reception by the critics was very good.

In mid-2016 the premiere was announced for January 2017 of the thriller Split, written and directed by Shyamalan, and starring James McAvoy and Anya Taylor-Joy.


Shyamalan has had secondary roles in different films directed by him:

  • In The Sixth Sense is the doctor who looks after the child, who suspects possible maltreatment by his mother.

  • In The Forest or The Village is also a somewhat important character: it is the guard of the place where the medicines that Ivy Walker needs are.
  • In The Girl in the Water or The Lady in the Water is characterized as a novel writer who is writing a book that will be very influential for the future; In this film is in which his appearance is more than a small cameo, since his character has many appearances throughout the film.
  • In The Incident or The End of Time is Joey, the co-worker who constantly calls Alma Moore. You only hear a “hello” from Joey’s voice. You can also see him sitting in one of the side seats of the train, and looks out when the vehicle stops.

This type of participation is common in the filmography of the master of suspense Alfred Hitchcock in which during the three decades he directed films in Hollywood at the rate of one per year, reserving in all of them a brief appearance (cameo), always without dialogue .
