James Cossins

Birthday: Dec 4, 1933
Birthplace: Not Available
Actor James Cossins was one of the ranks of British character players seemingly put on earth to play fussy, officious roles. Cossins' movie work commenced in the mid '60s and embraced such films as Richard Lester's How I Won the War (1968), Hammer's Lost Continent (1968), the Jack Wild vehicle Melody (1970) and the turgid Richard Burton meller Villain (1971). Seldom permitted more than five to ten minutes a film, James Cossins had his best showing in the 1967 picture The Anniversary. He contrived not to blend into the scenery despite the daunting competition of star Bette Davis, here playing a one-eyed, incestuous monster mama.
