Irish stage, film and TV actor Colin Blakely worked as a sporting goods salesman before turning to acting in his late 20s. Starting out in theatres in Belfast and Wales, he made his 1959 London debut in Sean O'Casey's Cock-a-Doodle-Dandy. Blakely spent most of the 1960s associated with the Royal Shakespeare Company and the National Theatre. Making his first film, Saturday Night and Sunday Morning, in 1960, Blakely kept busy before the cameras until the mid-1980s in an exhausting variety of characterizations. Among his more sizeable movie roles was Dr. Watson in 1969's The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes. Colin Blakely's final appearance was in the Masterpiece Theatre TV multiparter Paradise Postponed (1986).
