Freddie Jones

Actor Freddie Jones

Freddie Jones: 

 Sep 12 1927-July 9 2019

The prince of wild-eyed bluster and choleric charm, Mr Jones has a CV as long as Gazza's psychiatric notes and has appeared in many classic and not-so-classic films, including 'Accident' (1967), 'Otley' (1969), 'Zulu Dawn' (1979), 'Dune' (1984), 'Marat/Sade' (1967), David Lynch's 'Wild At Heart' (1990), 'The Elephant Man' (1980) and 'The Satanic Rites Of Dracula' (1973). His TV work is even more extensive, from 'The Avengers', 'Randall & Hopkirk Deceased' (both series), 'The Ghosts of Motley Hall' and 'Jason King', to 'Vanity Fair', 'Lovejoy', and 'The League Of Gentlemen'. A gold-standard character actor. Trivia point: He is the father of the highly-regarded actor Toby Jones, who has received far too much recent publicity and too many critical accolades to qualify for inclusion here himself.
