Brian Cox CBE
5' 7½" (1.71 m)
Did You Know?
[on Spike Lee
] Ah, there's a director. Astonishing, Spike Lee. A feisty guy, but a guy who's, I think, incredibly misunderstood. I think people review his politics or his color as opposed to his filmmaking sometimes. Because he's a wonderful, wonderful filmmaker and a lover of the art. He stands up for things, but he's also a brilliant storyteller who really understands the whole.
He was awarded the Laurence Olivier
Theatre Award in 1985 (1984 season) for Best Actor in a New Play for "Rat in the Skull".
Often plays characters associated with the government or the military (or both).
