Scottish Actor. Established himself professionally in British theater, television, and film. No-nonsense demeanor was perfect for authoritarian and military roles, especially Roman soldiers, as in "Cleopatra" (1963), "The Fall of the Roman Empire" (1964), and "The Viking Queen" (1967). However, he is best remembered for his roles in Hammer Films including "Dracula-Prince of Darkness" (1966), "Five Million Years to Earth" (1967) and "Blood from the Mummy's Tomb" (1971). Made numerous appearances in television throughout his career, notably in "Adam Smith" (1972) and in the Australian series "The Outsiders" (1976). One of his last appearances was in "Rob Roy" (1995). He died at a London hospital of a heart attack.
