Godfrey Quigley was an Irish stage, film and television actor.
Quigley was born in Jerusalem where his father served as an officer in the British Army. The family returned to Ireland in the 1930s and, following service in World War II, Quigley began his training as an actor at the Abbey School of Acting.
In the 1950s, Quigley co-founded the Globe Theatre Company, which had its base in Dun Laoghaire. The company closed in 1960. During the same period he produced the popular radio soap opera, The Kennedys of Castleross.
In 1949, Quigley made his first film appearance in the film Saints and Sinners. He appeared in two Stanley Kubrick films; first as the moral prison chaplain in the 1971 film A Clockwork Orange, later as Captain Grogan in the 1975 film Barry Lyndon. On British television, amongst many smaller appearances, he was a has-been gangster in Big Breadwinner Hog (1969).
Quigley's theatre roles include the Irishman in Tom Murphy's The Gigli Concert, for which he won the Harvey's Best Actor award in 1984.
Godfrey Quigley died in Dublin of Alzheimer's disease at the age of 71.
