Roger Livesey

Lowest Rated: 80% The Entertainer (1960)
Birthday: Jun 25, 1906
Birthplace: Not Available
Roger Livesey couldn't have escaped the world of acting even if he'd wanted to. Livesey was the son of stage actor Sam Livesey, the brother of performers Jack and Barry Livesey, and the husband of actress Ursula Jeans. He himself was on stage from age 11 and in films from 16. Livesey's hearty, jolly-good-fellow personality was best exploited by the producer/director team of Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger, who cast the actor in the title role of The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp (1943) and as the very self-sacrificing physician in A Matter of Life and Death. In films until 1970, Roger Livesey also did plenty of television work, including countless narration and voiceover assignments.
