Jeremy Brett

Jeremy Brett in the role of Sherlock Holmes.

Jeremy Brett (born Peter Jeremy William Huggins) (November 3, 1933 - September 12, 1995) was a British actor.

Brett was born in Berkswell Grange, Warwickshire, England. He was educated at Eton College and trained at the Central School of Speech and Drama. He played many classical roles on stage, including a huge amount of Shakespeare, and made his first film and television appearances in 1955. In 1958, he married the actress, Anna Massey (daughter of Raymond Massey), but they were divorced in 1962. Years later, they would appear together in the BBC's dramatization of Rebecca (1978) -- Brett playing the hero, Max de Winter, and Massey playing the sinister Mrs. Danvers.

In 1976 he married Joan Wilson, but she died in 1985, and he did not remarry.

From the early 1960s onwards, Brett was rarely off British television screens. He played leading roles in many classic serials, notably appearing as D'Artagnan in the 1966 adaptation of The Three Musketeers. Many of his appearances were in comedy roles, but usually with a classic edge (he appeared in several Noel Coward plays). He joked that he was rarely allowed into the 20th century and never into the present day.

Brett's film career was never as distinguished as his stage and small-screen careers. He played Freddie Eynsford-Hill in the 1964 film My Fair Lady, but his singing voice was dubbed. Brett could sing, however, as he proved when he played Danilo in The Merry Widow on television in 1968.

Although he appeared in so many films and was such a familiar face on television, Brett is now best remembered for portraying Sherlock Holmes in a long series of television films (from 1984 to 1994), based on the original stories by Arthur Conan Doyle. After taking on the role, he made few appearances out of character and is considered the Sherlock Holmes of the 1980s and 1990s, as Basil Rathbone had been before him from his 1940s films. He died of heart failure in London.

He died of heart failure in London. Most Caine impressions repeat the catchphrase "...and not a lot of people know that", which was never actually used by Caine, except more recently when sending up himself and the mimics who established the catchphrase. After taking on the role, he made few appearances out of character and is considered the Sherlock Holmes of the 1980s and 1990s, as Basil Rathbone had been before him from his 1940s films. Caine is a popular subject for impressionists and mimics, having a distinctive yet fairly easy to copy voice. Although he appeared in so many films and was such a familiar face on television, Brett is now best remembered for portraying Sherlock Holmes in a long series of television films (from 1984 to 1994), based on the original stories by Arthur Conan Doyle. Unlike some actors who adopt their stage name for everyday use, Caine still uses his real name when he is not working. Brett could sing, however, as he proved when he played Danilo in The Merry Widow on television in 1968. He was created Commander of the British Empire (CBE) in 1992 for services to drama, and in 2000 a Knight Bachelor, becoming Sir Maurice Micklewhite.

He played Freddie Eynsford-Hill in the 1964 film My Fair Lady, but his singing voice was dubbed. He has been Oscar-nominated six times, winning his first Academy Award for the 1986 film, Hannah and Her Sisters, his second in 1999 for The Cider House Rules, in both cases as a supporting actor (in common with his contemporary Sean Connery, Caine now plays supporting roles). Brett's film career was never as distinguished as his stage and small-screen careers. By this time Caine's reputation as an icon was assured, and recent performances in Little Voice (1998), Last Orders (2001) and others have rehabilitated his critical reputation. He joked that he was rarely allowed into the 20th century and never into the present day. However, I have seen the house that it paid for, and it is superb". Many of his appearances were in comedy roles, but usually with a classic edge (he appeared in several Noel Coward plays). Of the former, Caine famously said "I have not seen the film, but I hear it is terrible.

He played leading roles in many classic serials, notably appearing as D'Artagnan in the 1966 adaptation of The Three Musketeers. Throughout the 1980s and early 1990s Caine alternated between acclaimed performances in films such as Educating Rita (1983) and Mona Lisa (1986), and unashamedly mercenary roles in notorious duds such as Jaws: The Revenge (1987) and On Deadly Ground (1994). From the early 1960s onwards, Brett was rarely off British television screens. The 1970s proved to be a lean period for Caine, with successes such as Sleuth (1972) and The Man Who Would Be King (1975) overshadowed by disasters such as The Swarm (1978) and Beyond the Poseidon Adventure (1979). In 1976 he married Joan Wilson, but she died in 1985, and he did not remarry. After ending the 1960s with the equally iconic The Italian Job Caine entered the 1970s with Get Carter, one of the best British gangster films. Danvers. His trademark horn-rimmed glasses did not prevent him becoming a pin-up.

Years later, they would appear together in the BBC's dramatization of Rebecca (1978) -- Brett playing the hero, Max de Winter, and Massey playing the sinister Mrs. He went on to play Palmer in a further two films. In 1958, he married the actress, Anna Massey (daughter of Raymond Massey), but they were divorced in 1962. Zulu was closely followed by his two best-known roles: the spy "Harry Palmer", in The Ipcress File (1965), and the woman-chasing Alfie (1966). He played many classical roles on stage, including a huge amount of Shakespeare, and made his first film and television appearances in 1955. At the time, Caine's working-class cockney, just as with The Beatles Liverpudlian accents, seemed like a breath of fresh air. He was educated at Eton College and trained at the Central School of Speech and Drama. This proved to be ironic, as Caine was quickly to become notable for using a regional accent, rather than the 'BBC English' hitherto considered proper for film actors.

Brett was born in Berkswell Grange, Warwickshire, England. After several minor roles, Caine came into the public eye as an upper-class British army officer in the 1963 film, Zulu. Jeremy Brett (born Peter Jeremy William Huggins) (November 3, 1933 - September 12, 1995) was a British actor. He once joked to an interviewer that had he looked the other way, he would have ended up as Michael 101 Dalmatians. Looking around for inspiration, he noted that The Caine Mutiny was being shown at the Odeon cinema, and so he decided to change his name to Michael Caine. His agent insisted that he come up with a new name immediately.

He happened to be speaking to his agent in a telephone box in London's Leicester Square when he was informed that he had to change his name again because another actor was already using the name Michael Scott. During the Second World War he was evacuated to Norfolk. When Michael Caine first became an actor he changed his name to Michael Scott. He was born Maurice Joseph Micklewhite in Rotherhithe, South London and grew up in nearby Camberwell. Michael Caine (born March 14, 1933) is a British film actor.
