Renowned British stage and screen actor Nickolas Grace's work from the 1970s onwards saw him win an array of roles, from Anthony Blanche in the adaptation of "Brideshead Revisited" to the Sheriff of Nottingham in the 1980s "Robin Hood" TV series. Trained at the Central School of Speech and Drama at the University of London, Grace debuted on regional stages but quickly moved to London's West End and won a place in the Royal Shakespeare Company in the early 1970s. Throughout the decade he landed several small screen roles while dipping in and out of a storied stage career, and in 1981 he was cast as Blanche in ITV's adaptation of "Brideshead Revisited." The exposure there won him more TV work, notably in 1984 when he landed the part of the Sheriff of Nottingham in the television adaptation of "Robin Hood." Meanwhile, he diversified his resume with the part of Grossman on the dystopian sci-fi drama "Max Headroom" and in the early 1990s on TV series like the raucous, boozy, pill-popping cult comedy "Absolutely Fabulous" and the adventure series "The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles." With a number of silver- and small-screen roles throughout the 1990s, Grace made his biggest splash as Bertrand Russell in the film about poet T.S. Eliot's marriage, "Tom & Viv," and as the dandy Vicomte de Nanjac in the 1999 adaptation of Oscar Wilde's satire "An Ideal Husband." Since then, he has carried on with work on several British comedies and dramas.
