Birthday: Jun 3, 1945

Birthplace: Glasgow, Scotland, UK

Stage, TV and film performer who began his career with the Glasgow Citizens Theatre and was a founding member of the radical 7:84 company (the name derives from the fact that 7 percent of the population of Britain own 84 percent of the country's wealth). Paterson first gained attention on screen for his role as a lonely D.J. in Bill Forsyth's "Comfort and Joy" (1984) and has since turned in finely controlled performances in films by Roland Joffe, Hugh Hudson and Malcolm Mowbray.
