Del Henney


Born - 24 July 1935, Liverpool, Lancashire, England
Died - 14 January 2019

Brown-haired, raw-boned English actor of penetrating gaze, best remembered as the thuggish villager who raped Susan George's character in Peckinpah's Straw Dogs (1971). There were a trio of high-profile films that year, but much of his subsequent career was spent on stage. Born Joseph Henney, his all-too-occasional films included The Bofors Gun (1968), Villain (1971), When Eight Bells Toll (1971), Brannigan (1974), Joseph Andrews (1977), The Gift (1989), Going Off Big Time (2000), Devil's Playground (2010) and the short Confession (2015), his last. Survived by his long-time partner, TV actress Rosemary McHale.
