Was awarded an Order of the British Empire (OBE) in 1994 for his services to drama. Won the TMA Best Director Award for Mr Kolpert at the Royal Court Theatre in 2000. In 2010, appeared as Malvolio in Gregory Doran's adaptation of Twelfth Night at the Duke of York's Theatre. In 2016, was due to reprise his most well-known role of Victor Meldrew at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, but the show was cancelled when he suffered a heart attack.
