A prolific British character player from the stage, whose film and TV appearances were usually in decidedly supporting roles, Maurice Denham was originally an engineer. He did not make his theatrical debut in until he was in his mid-20s, playing Hubert in "The Marquise" at the Little Theatre in Hull, England. Denham made his London debut in "Rain Before Seven" (1936). Already an established character player with a long list of stage credits, he joined the Old Vic Company in 1961 playing both "King Lear" and "Macbeth" that year. Denham played the title role in a West End production of "Nathan the Wise" (1967) and Serebryakov a Hampstead production of "Uncle Vanya" (1979).
