Richard Leech - Rotten Tomatoes

Richard Leech



A former doctor, Richard Leech gave up his successful practice after a single year to try his luck as an actor. His first screen role of note was Flight Lieutenant Young in the phenomenally successful The Dam Busters (1955). Thereafter, he was typecast as military officers, police inspectors, and, inevitably, doctors. He played small but notable roles in a number of Richard Attenborough-directed films, including Young Winston (1972) and Gandhi (1982). Richard Leech is the father of actress Eliza McClelland.
