Biography

Pigott-Smith was born in Rugby, Warwickshire, the son of Margaret Muriel (née Goodman) and Harry Thomas Pigott-Smith, who was a journalist. [ [http://www.filmreference.com/film/11/Tim-Pigott-Smith.html Tim Pigott-Smith Biography (1946-) ] ] He was educated at Wyggeston Boys' School, Leicester, King's Grammar School, Stratford Upon Avon and Bristol University. He trained as an actor at the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School. Roles include appearances in the television dramatisations of "The Jewel in the Crown" and Mrs Gaskell's "North and South", where he appeared in both television adaptations. In the 1975 version he played Frederick Hale, in the one of 2004 his father Richard Hale.

His film career has recently included the 2004 film "Alexander", "The Four Feathers", "Gangs of New York", "Johnny English" and "The Remains of the Day", and "V for Vendetta".

Pigott-Smith is a regular stage actor in Shakespearean and Greek roles; for instance, he played Posthumus in John Barton's 1974 production of "Cymbeline" for the Royal Shakespeare Company. He has also made something of a name for himself as a narrator. He narrated notable TV documentaries such as the "Battlefield" series, which examines pivotal battles of the Second World War from an operations point of view.

He has also appeared twice in "Doctor Who", in the stories "The Claws of Axos" (1971), and "The Masque of Mandragora" (1976).
