[none found]


Congenial character actor whose best film roles came in two vastly different films in 1971 and 1972 - Richard Burton's 'Villain' and Spike Milligan's 'Adolf Hitler - My Part in His Downfall'. With his down-to earth, friendly London voice he'd been a regular on television for years by this stage, appearing in a roll-call of British TV series since his debut in No Hiding Place in 1964. The Avengers, Department S and Catweazle followed before 1972.

If his film career didn't exactly scale the heights, he can still boast to having appeared in Alfie (1966), Superman (1978) and debuting in the odd charmer, An Alligator Named Daisy. Television has been his more natural home, he headlined Get Some In (1975) had a main part in Love Hurts (1992-94) and appeared most recently in Burnside (2000).

Perhaps his greatest contribution has been in guest appearances where his charisma, which can be menacing when he chooses, has seen him pop up in - Minder, Dr Who, Casualty, Lovejoy, Holby City, The Bill and Eastenders to name but a few.

  • Trained at the Italia Conti Stage Academy.
  • He was voted best actor for Doctor Who: Dragonfire season 24 by Doctor Who magazine readers.
  • He was nominated for a 1997 Laurence Olivier Theatre Award for Best Supporting in a Musical of 1996 for his role in Paint Your Wagon.
