Profile Bio Text
Ian McShane (born 29 September 1942) is a Golden Globe-winning English actor. Although he has starred in a number of films, it is by his television roles that he is generally best known, particularly in the HBO Western drama Deadwood; and will also appear in the upcoming NBC series Kings. McShane was born in Blackburn, Lancashire, the son of Irene (née Cowley) and Harry McShane, a Scottish-born professional footballer with Manchester United and Hamilton Academical. McShane grew up in Urmston, Manchester and attended Stretford Grammar School. In 1977, he began a turbulent five-year relationship with Sylvia Kristel after meeting her on the set of The Fifth Musketeer. He is married to Gwen Humble. McShane is given a less than complimentary mention by singer Mark E Smith in The Fall song, "A Past Gone Mad". In the United Kingdom, his best known role may be that of roguish but dashing antiques dealer Lovejoy in the BBC drama series of the same name. He also enjoyed fame in the United States as bounding English cad Don Lockwood in the soap opera Dallas.
