Biography

British actor Terence Alexander made his debut in provincial repertory at age 16. A film actor since 1950, Alexander has specialized in slightly dissipated aristocrats. He was, for example, ideally suited for the role of shabby but proud ex-military officer Rupert Rutland-Smith in The League of Gentlemen. Alexander has also proven to be an apt foil for the broad comedy antics of Norman Wisdom in On the Beat (1962) and the Carry on Gang. In the 1980s, Terence Alexander enjoyed a measure of TV popularity as one of the co-stars of the long-running Bergerac. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
