Kenneth Haigh


Born - 25 March 1929, Mexborough, Yorkshire, England
Died - 4 February 2018

Tall, solidly-built, serious-looking British actor with dark, wavy hair, a star of the theatre - the original 'angry young man' in Look Back in Anger - and TV (notably as Joe Lampton in Man at the Top) - who never made quite the same impact in films. After a debut in Companions in Crime (1954), his cinema work included My Teenage Daughter (1956), Saint Joan (1957), High Flight (1957), Cleopatra (1963), Week-End at Dunkirk (1964), The Deadly Affair (1966), A Lovely Way to Go (1968), Eagle in a Cage (1972), Man at the Top (1973), Robin and Marian (1976), The Bitch (1979), Wild Geese II (1985), Lorna Doone (1990) and Shuttlecock (1993), his last. He spent the last 15 years of his life in a nursing home, after sustaining brain damage while choking on a bone in a restaurant.
