I was born on New Year’s Eve 1937 to parents Murial and Richard Arthur. My father was a man of immense, sometimes violent energy, whose eyes would change colour when he was excited Growing up, I was a sensitive child, happier drawing, painting and playing the piano (I’m now a virtuoso) than hanging with the other kids. I was dyslexic and very poor academically. Instead I used to love watching films, coming to idolise stars like Bogart, Cagney, Jack Palance and Richard Burton.

Following my dream I left school to enrol in the Cardiff College of music and drama and after graduation I took a job with the Arts Council. Following a stint of National Service I returned to my parents’ new place in Laleston, near Bridgend and, getting back into drama, I appeared in several local plays, making my professional debut in “Have a cigatette”, at the Palace Theatre, Swansea, in 1960.

My inherited characteristics made me intense, and my years as a lonely outsider fuelled the fire. I won a place at RADA and sprint the 70?s and 80?s fleeting between theatre and the big screen covering such diverse roles as: secret serviceman Philip Calvert, in Alistair MacLean’s When Eight Bells Toll & Captain Bligh to Mel Gibson’s rebellious Fletcher Christian in The Bounty.

In the 90’s, out of the blue, came the big one. I was re-introduced to the Big Screen and I won an Oscar for this and followed it up with hit roles in Dracula, Chaplin, Legends of the Fall, Amistad, The Mask of Zorro and Meet Joe Black. It was a far cry from my modest roots in in Wern Road, Port Talbot . Who am I?
