Biography

With his soft facial features and kind eyes, Tony Haygarth has long specialized in playing unpretentious, salt-of-the-earth types in television and films. His career, which has spanned an impressive four-plus decades in show business, got its start with guest-starring roles on television programs, which led to costarring as PC Wilmot in the late '70s comedy "Rosie." This was followed by playing a German in "Holocaust," an ensemble miniseries featuring the likes of Meryl Streep and Rosemary Harris, and the part of Milo Renfield in John Badham's version of "Dracula." The '80s brought working-class roles in two very different British sitcoms; he was Des Kinvig, the owner of an electrical repair shop who is visited by aliens in "Kinvig"; and the hustling chauffeur Sanchez in "Farrington of the F.O.," set at an inconsequential British Consulate in Latin America. During the '90s, Haygarth's television work included "El C.I.D.," a series about expatriate plainclothes detectives who have relocated to Spain, where they keep an eye on criminals from back home. However, his lengthiest run on a show was on the drama "Where the Heart Is," in which he played Vic Snow, a recent widower with two children to raise, from 1997 to 2002. Around this time, he provided the voice of farmer/prison camp warden Mr. Tweedy in the animated 2000 film "Chicken Run," and would go on to play another concerned parent, farmhand Mick Naylor, in the soap opera "Emmerdale Farm" from 2008 to 2009.
