Did You Know?
An actor is an interpreter of other men's words, often a soul which wishes to reveal itself to the world but dare not, a craftsman, a bag of tricks, a vanity bag, a cool observer of mankind, a child and at his best a kind of unfrocked priest who, for an hour or two, can call on heaven and hell to mesmerize a group of innocents.
He was awarded the Companion of Honour in the 1994 Queen's Honours List for his services to drama.
Known for playing multiple complex characters and changing his appearance to suit.
