Iain Cuthbertson

Actor

Born - 4 January 1930, Glasgow. Scotland
Died - 4 September 2009

Very tall, well-built, glowering Scottish actor with thinning hair, whose menacingly friendly grin was seen to its greatest effect as Adam Faith's nemesis Charlie Endell in the 1971-72 TV series Budgie. After a decade as a television actor, he broke into films with what is probably his best-remembered role: the father of the family in The Railway Children (1970). Other films included Up the Chastity Belt (1971), The Assam Garden (1985), Gorillas in the Mist (1988), Scandal (1989) and Strictly Sinatra (2001), his last. He suffered a severe stroke in 1982, but recovered to return to TV acting two years later.
