Veteran actor Michael Caine has announced his retirement.

The 90-year-old boasts with a successful acting career that spanned 70 years with 160 films under his belt.

His last film, The Great Escaper, was released on 6 October. The Great Escaper follows the story of a World War II British veteran who escapes from his elderly residential care home in 2014 to attend the D-Day celebrations in France.

The movie is based on the real life of Bernie Jordan and Caine has received praise for his performance.

 Caine has been nominated for six Oscars and have won twice. In 1986 he won for the movie Hannah and her Sisters, and in 2000 he won for The Cider House Rules.

He announced his retirement on BBC Radio 4.

“I keep saying I’m going to retire. Well, I am now. The only parts I’m liable to get now are 90-year-old men. Or maybe 85. They’re not going to be the lead. You don’t have leading men at 90, you’re going to have young handsome boys and girls. So I thought, I might as well leave with all this.”

Caine was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II in 2000.
