When he has extended himself into film and TV outings, it has been primarily for historical or period roles. Over the years he has grown quite comfortable in both a pair of hose and a suit of armor. Born in Bristol, England, on August 15, 1945, Nigel trained with several repertory companies, including the Oxford Meadow Players and Bristol Old Vic, where some of his better known works included "Volpone," "Right You Are," "The Balcony," "Richard II," and "Two Gentlemen from Verona." Over time he has appeared extensively with the Royal Shakespearean Company, the Round House Theatre and the Royal Court Theatre. Showing flashes of brilliance in his film debut as the drooling, moronic and cowardly Prince John in The Lion in Winter (1968), Nigel held his own opposite a most intimidating cast that included Peter O'Toole, Oscar-winner Katharine Hepburn and Anthony Hopkins (who also made his film debut). Surprisingly, it did not lead to a torrent of film roles. In demand on the repertory stage, however, he continued with sterling roles in "She Stoops to Conquer," "'Tis Pity She's a Whore," "Queen Christina," "Look Out...Here Comes Trouble," "The Suicide" and "A Month in the Country." Thirteen years later Nigel finally returned to the cinema, making a memorable comeback in John Boorman's medieval epic Excalibur (1981) as King Arthur, who grew from a humbling, bumbling squire to a noble and rather melancholy ruler throughout the course of the film. This feat, in turn, ignited more on-camera work. Nigel earned kudos playing the sexually degenerate titular painter in Derek Jarman's Caravaggio (1986), and subsequently turned in other interestingly off-kiltered characters for Jarman in The Last of England (1988), War Requiem (1989), Edward II (1991) and Blue (1993/I), an association that ended with Jarman's AIDS-related death in 1994. Nigel also became a familiar face on British TV and is probably best known in America for starring in the US/British series "Covington Cross" (1992), in which he played Sir Thomas Gray, a medieval knight. In addition he created fascinating character portraits in the plush TV costumers "The Mushroom Picker," "Far from the Madding Crowd" and "Crime and Punishment." More recently Nigel appeared in the films The Emperor's New Clothes (2001), FeardotCom (2002) and the Brad Pitt epic starrer Troy (2004).This item is part of our in-store inventory from our shop which is located in the heart of Hollywood where we have been in business for OVER 40 years!Winning buyder agrees in advance to pay an additional Mailpostage (Foreign orders will require additional postage) and to remit full payment after notification from the seller.
