Biography

In need of a burly, intimidating looking British actor for your movie? Then Clive Russell is your man. Since the 1960s, this English-born/Scottish-raised actor has compiled an impressive list of roles, typically playing salt-of-the-earth, working class characters and cops. Originally trained as a school teacher, he found his true calling as an actor. He landed a few small parts in the 1960s on shows like "Danger Man," but it wasn't until the 80s that his acting career really kicked off. Of his early work, he probably gained the most attention for his role as the superintendent in the television movie adaptation of Dario Fo's play "The Accidental Death of an Anarchist." He has been a familiar face in many television programs over the years, playing several different characters on the long-running soap opera "Coronation Street," as well as landing significant roles in various prestigious mini-series such as "Middlemarch" (as Caleb Garth) and the urban fantasy "Neverwhere" (as the brutish Mr. Vandermar). In 1999, he co-starred in two Charles Dickens adaptations, "Great Expectations" and "Oliver Twist." Action fans may remember him as one of the Viking warriors in "The 13th Warrior" and as Lancelot's father in 2004's "King Arthur." But this veteran actor's career high came with an acclaimed role as a sensitive coal miner (opposite Helena Bonham Carter) in the 1995 independent drama "Margaret's Museum." He has also appeared in the lavishly produced Guy Ritchie movie "Sherlock Holmes" and the 2010 version of "The Wolfman."
