Netflix Movies Starring Denis Quilley

Noted British classical theatre actor Denis Quilley distinguished himself on the Shakespearean stage alongside Laurence Olivier and John Gielgud, among others. His sturdy handsomeness was slightly offset by a relatively prominent proboscis. As in the case of Jeremy Northam and Liam Neeson, it only accentuated his looks and added to the uniqueness of his characters. Educated at Bancroft's School in Essex, he made his first appearance in 1945 with the Birmingham Repertory Company and replaced Richard Burton in "The Lady's Not for Burning" in his London debut in 1950. Following roles in "Twelfth Night" and "The Merchant of Venice," Quilley took a marked departure from his classical reputation and made a resounding hit for himself in musicals and satirical revues, notably "Airs on a Shoestring" (1953) and "Grab Me a Gondola."(1956). In the early 60s he took his London role in "Irma La Douce" to Broadway and met with great success. Read more on iMDB
