† 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 'Zulu Dawn', 'Dune', 'Marat/Sade', David Lynch's 'Wild At Heart', 'The Elephant Man' and 'The Satanic Rites Of Dracula'. 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 critical accolades to qualify for inclusion here himself.
