The British actor Freddie Jones was born in Staffordshire, England on 12 September 1927. His most popular television role, Claudius in the British T.V. series The Caesars, won him the World’s Best T.V. Actor Award at the Cannes Film Festival in 1969.Jones started out as a stage actor who began participating in amateur theater while working as a laboratory assistant in a chemical factory. He went on to a position with the Royal Shakespeare company in the 60’s, where he played the role of Cucurucu in Marat/Sade. The play did very well in London and New York, enabling Jones to make his big-screen debut in the film version of the play in 1966. His other film credits include The Bliss of Mrs. Blossom (1968), Frankenstein Must Be Destroyed! (1970), All Creatures Great and Small (1974), The Elephant Man (1980), Firefox (1982), Firestarter (1984), Dune (1984) Young Sherlock Holmes (1985) and Wild at Heart (1990).
