Actor

Born - 29 April 1926, Stepney, London, England

Bushily-browed English actor of small stature who, despite his rather sad features, usually portrayed genial, helpful characters, most notably Dr Legg in TV's EastEnders, whom he played for 34 years. Born Leonard Finestein of Lithuanian parentage, he switched from engineering to acting in his late twenties. Mainly on TV, but a few films here and there: Up the Creek (1958), Breakout (1959), Third Man on the Mountain (1959), The Devil-Ship Pirates (1964), Robin Hood Junior (1975), Panic (1978), Give My Regards to Broad Street (1984), Morons from Outer Space (1985), Miracle at Midnight (1998), Zombie Diaries (2006) and Underground (2007), his last. He made the last of his 274 appearances as Dr Legg in 2019.
