  • Acting was David Kossoff's third career choice, after first working as an interior designer and then as an aviation draftsman. On stage from the early 1940s, Kossoff exploited his Slavic name and mittel-European bearing in dozens of "foreign" character roles. His better-known film assignments include the part of Carrington the junk dealer in the 1956 version of 1984 and befuddled nuclear scientist Professor Kokintz in The Mouse That Roared. David Kossoff was a regular on the British television series The Larkins and A Little Big Business, and also gained a fan following for his recitations from the Bible on a number of TV variety series.
