Personal Quote:

If given the choice between Kenneth Branagh's production of Henry V (1989) or Arnold Schwarzenegger's The Terminator (1984), there's hardly a question of where most television dials would be turned.

Trivia:

He was sought for the role of O'Brien the interrogator in Nineteen Eighty-Four (1984), along with Sean Connery and Paul Scofield. Scofield accepted the part, but had to drop out of shooting after breaking his arm and was replaced by Richard Burton. See more »

Trademark:
