TIMOTHY DALTON

21st March 1946 -

Out went the humour and in came a more serious 007 in a style more imagined by author Ian Fleming. James Bond was now living on the edge.

Timothy Dalton first gained international recognition in the award-winning film The Lion In Winter, in which he played the young Philip II of France.

Dalton’s first love has always been the theatre, and after attending the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (RADA), he spent a period in repertory. Following this, his commanding presence combined with his fine acting ability quickly established his reputation as a Shakespearean actor of note while starring with the Royal Shakespeare Company. Dalton’s early film career reflected his classical background with starring roles in Wuthering Heights, Mary Queen of Scots, and Cromwell. His later career diversified and his screen roles have included a villain in The Rocketeer, a terminally-ill man in Hawks, Rhett Butler in Scarlett, a dictator in the comedy The Beautician & The Beast, and for American TV, Julius Caesar in a 4-hour version of Cleopatra.
