Born into an Irish family, actor Patrick Malahide was educated at the Douai School by Benedictine monks. He began acting at the school and quickly found work in the theater; in the early 1970s, he performed in many classic plays, making a special impression in a revival of John Osborne's "Look Back in Anger." He eventually began working in television; hired for only a half day's work for the series crime drama "Minder," Malahide so impressed the show's creators that they created a lead role for him. That show ran until 1988, and in between, Malahide made some first-rate feature films, including the gentle Bill Forsyth comedy "Comfort and Joy" and the searing drama "The Killing Fields." On television, Malahide played a key role in the classic Dennis Potter series "The Singing Detective," and he found some success in the theater while also playing in big TV dramatizations of classic books like "The Pickwick Papers" and "Middlemarch." Malahide began the new millennium with a cameo in the 2000 boy ballet movie "Billy Elliot" and continued to act on British television. He found guest roles on the mystery drama "Five Days" in 2007, the police procedural spin-off "Law and Order: UK" in 2009, and the sci-fi series "Survivors" in 2010.
