The Quiz. Who am I?

The first correct answer to be drawn will be the winner. With your answer, you must supply name, phone number and area where you live.

I was born on New Years 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 (IÂ’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.

I left school to enrol in the Cardiff College of music and drama and after graduation 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 appeared in several local plays, making my professional debut in ‘Have
A CigaretteÂ’, 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 spent the 70Â’s and 80Â’s
between theatre and the big screen covering such diverse roles as: Philip Calvert, and Captain Bligh.

In the 90Â’s, I was re - introduced to the Big Screen and won an Oscar for my next possibly infamous role. A far cry from my roots in Wern Road Port. Talbot. WHO AM I?
