Birthplace: Aberystwyth, Wales, UK

This acclaimed classical stage actor with the Royal Shakespeare Company possessed soulful deep-set eyes and sharp features that made him ideal for the title role in the RSC adaptation of Dickens's "Nicholas Nickleby" on the London and Broadway stages and television. His performance earned a Tony and an Olivier Award and an Emmy nomination. Rees won acclaim for his portrayal of an art critic whose visit to an elderly painter (played by Laurence Olivier) causes problems in the PBS adaptation of John Fowles' "The Ebony Tower" (1987) He joined the hit TV comedy "Cheers" for the 1989-90 season as Kirstie Alley's suitor, the single-minded international financier and corporate raider Robin Colcord and co-starred in the short-lived sci-fi series "M.A.N.T.I.S" (Fox, 1994-97). This led on to an ongoing career as a character actor on film, TV and stage, cut short too soon when he died of cancer on July 10, 2015, at the age of 71.
