Born November 22, 1940, in Minneapolis, his family moved to California when Terry was 11 where he immersed himself in books and make-believe and at high school began drawing cartoons, leaving for London after university where he met four Oxbridge graduates and formed Monty Python's Flying Circus with Gilliam providing surreal animation on TV and in their films - Monty Python And The Holy Grail
(1975), Jabberwocky (1977) and The Meaning Of Life (1983) - which he also directed, before moving on to Brazil (1985), Time Bandits (1981) and Twelve Monkeys (1995) although his dream to film the Don Quixote story with Johnny Depp failed and the documentary Lost In La Mancha charts its collapse, however he still has wife Maggie Weston and daughter Holly to turn to.
