Biography

Whether he portrayed a squalid drug dealer (1987's "Withnail & I"), a grimy security guard (1992's "Alien 3"), or a flea-bitten roadie (1993's "Wayne's World 2"), veteran British actor Ralph Brown's intensity never wavered. Married to actress Jenny Jules since 1992, Brown's slow, measured tones brought depth to his polar opposite roles as Jaye Davidson's sometimes-lover in the surprise hit "The Crying Game" (1992), and as Natalie Portman's battle-scarred pilot in the blockbuster "Stars Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace" (1999). But even as he enjoyed steady supporting work in films and British TV shows, Brown pursued a playwriting career that dated back to the late 1980s (and won him a Samuel Beckett Award), while giving his love of music an outlet in the form of Brighton Beach Boys, a Beach Boys tribute band. He also took up screenwriting and producing with the indie film "New Year's Day" (2000). With numerous small but memorable roles under his belt, Brown has managed that rare thing in show business - growing old.
