One of England's most respected stage actors of the 1950s, actor-director John Neville's lack of name recognition belied an incredibly prolific career in film and on television over a period of six decades. As one of the more prominent members of London's Old Vic Theatre Company, he made a name for himself in productions of "Richard III" and "Othello," as well as on Broadway in mountings of "Romeo and Juliet," among others. Work on British television in such programs as "The First Churchills" (BBC, 1969) and on stage with Canada's Stratford Shakespeare Festival preceded his memorable starring performance in Terry Gilliam's "The Adventures of Baron von Munchhausen" (1989). In addition to work in such films as "Little Women" (1994), the actor was later remembered for his subtly sinister portrayal of 'The Well-Manicured Man' on the immensely popular television series "The X-Files" (Fox, 1993-2002), as well as in the hit 1998 "X-Files" feature film. Though not a household name, Neville provided audiences on both sides of the Atlantic with scores of nuanced performances on film, television and - for those lucky enough to have been in attendance - the stage.
