Oliver Reed(2/13/1938-5/2/1999)




British character actor known as much for his wild carousing as he was for his many roles on television and cinema. He appeared in various UK television series during the '50's before becoming known through his roles in Hammer films during the '60's. From there, he went on to star in various international productions over the years, enjoying a busy career throughout the decades and would probably still be working even now if he wasnt felled by a heart attack in 1999. Made numerous appearances in genre films over the years, including an iconic one as the cursed Leon in Hammer's only werewolf film, CURSE OF THE WEREWOLF.

The Two Faces Of Dr.Jekyll(1960)
Curse Of the Werewolf(1961)
Pirates Of Blood River(1962)
Night Creatures(1962)

Ollie was one of my favorite actors, Memph. Have you ever seen a film he made in 1966 called THE TRAP? Sadly, it seems to have become forgotten. Not available on DVD, but it was on Youtube. I'll try to find the link.
