Profile Bio Text
Dudley Sutton (born 6 April 1933, Surrey) is an English actor. He served in the RAF before enrolling in the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art. Known for his eccentricity, he became a cult figure after playing a gay biker in The Leather Boys (1964). He married American actress Marjorie Steele in 1961; she had previously been married to the millionaire producer Huntington Hartford. Sutton and Steele had one child together, later divorcing in 1965. On stage, he played the title role in the first production of Joe Orton`s Entertaining Mr Sloane (1963).
He has appeared in many films during his career, including Rotten to the Core (1965), Crossplot (1969), The Devils (1971), Madame Sin (1972), The Pink Panther Strikes Again (1976), Fellini`s Casanova (1976), Edward II (1991), and The Football Factory (2004). Among the more notable of his many television appearances are his roles as Tinker Dill in Lovejoy, as Mr Carter in the Beiderbecke Trilogy and as Oleg Kirov in Smiley`s People (1982). He also starred with Ronnie Barker and Richard Beckinsale in a Christmas Special of Porridge 1976 as Reg Urwin. In 1999 he appeared in the BBC Radio play Cosmos the Mystic Dog. He also made an appearance in the soap opera EastEnders for a short stint, playing Wilfred, a conman. In 2003, Sutton found inspiration from the Internet "where apparently people say that every time you masturbate God kills a kitten". From that statement, Sutton developed a serious piece about "a young man`s emotions and feelings, from the moment he`s a baby tugging at his cock onwards."
In August 2003, he performed the one-man Killing Kittens show at Edinburgh`s Underbelly. Sutton followed up Killing Kittens with a second autobiographical show Pandora`s Lunchbox in 2006. Following an acclaimed performance as William Blake in Peter Ackroyd`s BBC television series The Romantics, Dudley Sutton joined the cast of Albion Rising at St. Giles in the Fields Church, London, in April 2007. He also played a small role in Dean Spanley, and is currently working on a studio recording of Albion Rising with London rock group Subterraneans. Sutton had a small role in the British teenage drama Skins as Freddie`s granddad. He lived in Mousehole, Cornwall before moving to Chelsea.
