Snub-nosed, balding South African actor of round but somewhat strained features, especially in later life. Theatre dominated his career and he won a Tony award in 1975 for his performance in Sizwe Banzi is Dead. From the mid 1970s, he also fitted a few films into his busy theatrical schedule, albeit mainly in supporting roles: The Wild Geese (1978), Ashanti (1979), The Dogs of War (1980), Gandhi (1982), The Stick (1987), A Dry White Season (1989), Night of the Cyclone (1990), The Power of One (1992), The Air Up There (1994), Tarzan and the Lost City (1998), I Dreamed of Africa (2000), Malunde (2001) and Blood Diamond (2006), his last.
