Personal Quote:

A soap, like EastEnders (1985), that is an actor's graveyard. They end up there and can never get out, and recently lots of actors have returned there because they just find that they can't get other roles as they are so well remembered for that part.


Has described his death as Admiral Ozzel in Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back (1980) as the best death in a movie. See more »
