Alan Bates
Birth: Feb. 17, 1934
Death: Dec. 27, 2003

Actor. Sir Alan Bates, versatile and good looking, shot to fame in 1956 in John Osborne's "Look Back in Anger," a groundbreaking play reflecting the social and class turmoils of 1950s England. Bates went on to play classical leads on the stage in "Hamlet," "Richard III" and "Antony and Cleopatra." On the big screen, he starred in films such as "Zorba the Greek," "Far From The Madding Crowd" and "Women in Love," in which he famously grappled naked with Oliver Reed. More recently, in 2001, he featured in director Robert Altman's period drama "Gosford Park." Bates, knighted after a career spanning six decades, suffered personal tragedies in recent years. His son Tristan died in 1990 aged 19 and his wife, the actress Victoria Ford, died two years later. (bio by: Noni)
