BIOGRAPHY:

Warren Mitchell was born on January 14, 1926 in London, England as Warren Misell. He is an actor and writer, known for Till Death Us Do Part (1965), In Sickness and in Health (1985) and Help! (1965). He has been married to Constance Wake since 1950. They have three children.
Spouse Constance Wake
(1950 - present) (3 children)
Trivia Daughter: Connie
Voted TV Actor of the Year for his portrayal of Cockney bigot Alf Garnett in Till Death Us Do Part (1965).
Despite playing an avid West Ham United fan in Till Death Us Do Part (1965), he is actually a Tottenham Hotspur supporter.
Is a naturalised citizen of Australia.
His huge following as the bigoted "Alf Garnett" character in Till Death Us Do Part (1965), led to the birth of its American cousin series, All in the Family (1971), in 1972 and his "Alf" counterpart, "Archie Bunker", played with equal success by Carroll O'Connor.
He was awarded the 2004 Laurence Olivier Theatre Award for Best Performance in a Supporting Role of 2003 for his performance in "The Price" at the Apollo Theatre.
He was nominated for a 2003 London Evening Standard Theatre Award for Best Actor for his performance in The Price, at the Apollo Theatre in London, England.
Spent two weeks as a Radio Luxembourg DJ in the 1950s under his real name of Warren Misel. He was advised to change his surname as few listeners would write to a Jew, so he chose the name Mitchell.
Suffered a stroke in August 2004 and was back on stage a week later performing in Arthur Miller's "The Price", a two-hour one-man show.
Mitchell and Richard Burton were Royal Air Force cadets together at Oxford in 1944, where they knew one another and became friends. From 1944-1947, when both were demobilized, they were stationed together at times in Canada and back in England. Later, they appeared together in The Spy Who Came in from the Cold (1965).
