Ken Jones


Born - 20 February 1930, Liverpool, Lancashire, UK
Died - 13 February 2014

Stocky, lugubrious, round-faced English actor with receding dark hair, best recalled as the much-put-upon 'Horrible' Ives in the TV comedy series Porridge. It was TV, in fact, that kept him him busy throughout the last 50 years of his career, although there were also a few films along the way, among them The Little Ones (1965), The File of the Golden Goose (1969), S.W.A.L.K. (1971), Gumshoe (1971), Murder by Decree (1979), No Surrender (1985), Whoops Apocalypse (1988), Stanley's Dragon (1994) and Jude (1996), his last, although he continued appearing on TV until 2007. Jones, who married actress Sheila Fay (she died in August 2013) died from bowel cancer.
