Profile Bio Text
John Neville, OBE, CM (born May 2, 1925) is an English theatre and film actor who moved to Canada in 1972. He enjoyed a resurgence of international attention in the 1980s as a result of his starring role in Terry Gilliam`s The Adventures of Baron Munchausen. Neville was a West End idol of the 1950s, hailed as "one of the most potent classical actors of the Burton-O`Toole generation". A leading member of London`s Old Vic Company, he played many classical leading roles, including Romeo in Shakespeare`s Romeo and Juliet (a role he repeated on American television for the anthology series Producers` Showcase), and an acclaimed Richard in Richard II, with Virginia McKenna as Queen Anne. He also alternated with Richard Burton the parts of Othello and Iago in Othello. He was a frequent visiting player at the Bristol Old Vic. He received good reviews in the under appreciated musical adaptation of Lolita, called Lolita, My Love, which closed in Boston en route to Broadway. From 1995-1998, Neville had a prominent recurring role in The X-Files television series as the Well-Manicured Man, and in 1998, he reprised his role in the feature film The X-Files:Fight The Future. Although he has had numerous other television appearances and occasional film roles, the main focus of Neville`s career has always been the theatre.
He was appointed to the Order of Canada, that nation`s highest civilian honour, in 2006. He currently resides in Toronto with his wife Caroline Hooper. They have been married since 1949 and have six children.
