Personal Quote:

My job is entertainment. I'm not there to get across any great messages. I don't want to be Prime Minister; I just want to be an actor, make people laugh, make people cry and say other people's lines. And if I believe in the lines, then I'm going to do the show to the best of my ability.


He joined the merchant navy when he was 15, and spent six years at sea. Then he began to study acting, and appeared with the Royal Shakespeare Company. He first gained widespread notice for playing ambitious footman Frederick Norton in "Upstairs, Downstairs". See more »
