Brian Murray


Born - 10 September 1937, Johannesburg, South Africa
Died - 20 August 2018

Fair-haired, solidly built British actor whose passive, heavy features belied the impassioned performances he often gave in the theatre, his favourite medium. Born Brian Bell in South Africa, where he began acting as a child, he moved to England - 'I played a few lower-class hoodlums in films' - before going on to America, where he stayed, becoming a Broadway stalwart. Occasional film appearances include those in Captured (1959), The League of Gentlemen (1960), The Angry Silence (1960), Illusions (1983), Bob Roberts (1992), City Hall (1996), In the Family (2011), Dream House (2011) and A Bread Factory, Parts One and Two (2018), his last. He died from natural causes.
