Though he may have been best known to U.K. audiences for his roles in such television series as London's Burning and Young, Gifted and Broke, stage and screen actor James Hazeldine would find true career fulfillment under the bright lights of the stage. Born in Salford, Lancashire, England, in April 1947, Hazeldine made his Broadway debut in the 1984 production of Strange Interludes. Though Hazeldine would later return to the stage alongside Kevin Spacey in The Iceman Cometh, he would work extensively with the Royal Shakespeare Company for roles in such productions as Troilus and Cressida and The Fool. Later serving as television's first incarnation of Jimmy Porter in Look Back in Anger, film appearances included The Medusa Touch (1978), Pink Floyd: The Wall (1982), and A Small Dance (1991). Falling ill just four short days into his run in the Royal National Theater production of The Talking Cure, James Hazeldine died in London. He was 55.
