  • One of Ireland's most distinguished character actors, Ray McAnally spent the bulk of his career on-stage, but he also appeared occasionally in feature films, particularly in the 1980s. McAnally was 18 when he first appeared on-stage at Dublin's prestigious Abbey Theatre in 1947. He remained with the house troupe through 1963. In London, he worked with the Royal Shakespeare Company and performed with some of Great Britain's finest actors, including John Gielgud. McAnally made his film debut in Professor Tim (1957) and went on to appear in a wide variety of films. In the U.S., he is most famous for appearing on the PBS series A Perfect Spy and A Very British Coup. At the time of his death, McAnally had just completed filming We're No Angels.
