Richard Pasco


Born - 18 July 1926, Barnes, London, England
Died - 12 November 2014

Tall, dark-haired, cerebral British actor, whose distinguished career in the theatre was never quite matched by achievements in film. After leading roles in Hammer movies of the later 1950s and 1960s, he settled into theatre and TV work, with only occasional character roles in films. Following a debut in Kill Me Tomorrow (1957), he was seen in Room at the Top (1958), Yesterday's Enemy (1959), Sword of Sherwood Forest (1960), Hot Enough for June (1963), The Gorgon (1964), Rasputin the Mad Monk (1965), The Watcher in the Woods (1980) and Mrs Brown (1997), his last. He married (second, in 1967) the actress Barbara Leigh-Hunt, who survives him.
