Narrow-faced, slender, haughty-looking character player, best known for his Cannes award-winning performance as Rita Tushingham's sympathetic gay friend in Tony Richardson's adaptation of Shelagh Delaney's "angry young woman" drama, "A Taste of Honey" (1961). A prolific theater actor--he originated the "Honey" role on the stage--Melvin has appeared in several films, including three by director Peter Medak: "A Day in the Death of Joe Egg" (1970), "The Krays" (1990) and "Let Him Have It" (1991).
