Personal Quote:

The BBC is meant to represent values - honesty, decency, values - ITV is not. Why should they compete? ITV does that stinking, sodding Coronation Street (1960) until you get brained out. Then the BBC comes out with that stinky, slobbing, clichéd, mindless, moronic EastEnders (1985). See more »

Trivia:

He played the Florentine preacher Girolamo Savonarola in both A Season of Giants (1990) and The Borgias (2011). See more »

Trademark:

Plays Villains
