Joseph Wiseman


Born - 15 May 1918, Montreal, Canada

Although most famous for playing Dr No in the first James Bond film in 1962, this dark-haired Canadian actor with impassive yet sharply-defined features was a prolific performer on stage and did most of his best work there. Occasional film appearances, often in unworthy roles, included Detective Story (1951), Viva Zapata! (1952), The Silver Chalice (1954), The Prodigal (1955), The Unforgiven (1959), The Happy Thieves (1962), The Night They Raided Minsky's (1968), Lawman (1971), The Apprenticeship of Duddy Kravitz (1974), The Betsy (1978) and Seize the Day (1986), his last. He continued making TV appearances until 1996, and was last seen in a stage version of Judgment at Nuremberg in 2001.
