British actor Peter Vaughan began alternating between stage and screen after his 1959 film bow in Sapphire. Nearly always cast as a frosty authority figure, Vaughan's movie assignments embraced both period films (he was Buhrud in 1968's Alfred the Great) and contemporary dramas (the Policeman in 1963's The Victors). On two occasions, Vaughan's talents were effectively utilized by director Terry Gilliam, first in the role of the Ogre in Time Bandits (1981), then in the part of Mr. Helpman in Brazil (1985). In 1986, Vaughan was seen on TV screens worldwide as the prosecutor in the miniseries Sins. He was seen as Mr. Stevens Sr. in Merchant-Ivory's Remains of the Day. Vaughan had a strong presence on British television for decades, appearing in shows like Fox, Masterpiece Theatre's Bleak House and Chancer. He later became known to an international set with his role of Maester Aemon on Games of Thrones. Vaughan died in 2016, at age 93.
