Kenneth Colley Biography

  • Profession: Actor
  • Born: Dec 7, 1937
  • Died: Jan 1, 0001

Hollow-cheeked character player Kenneth Colley acted in several of the "trendy," director-dominated films glutting the market of his native England in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Colley was seen in Michael Winner's [[Feature~V97295~The Jokers~thejokers]] (1967), Richard Lester's [[Feature~V23429~How I Won the War~howiwonthewar]] (1968), Ken Russell's [[Feature~V13555~The Devils~thedevils]] (1971) and [[Feature~V33903~The Music Lovers~themusiclovers]] (1971). Many of the actor's later performances were in more conformist films like [[Feature~V22661~Hitler: The Last Ten Days~hitler:thelasttendays]] (1973) and [[Feature~V41093~Return of the Jedi~returnofthejedi]] (1983) (as Admiral Piett), though in 1989 he was back with Ken Russell in [[Feature~V40137~The Rainbow~therainbow]] (1989). Colley portrayed Lord Horatio Nelson in the four-part TV biography I Remember Nelson, telecast in America as part of the 1981-82 season of [[Feature~V21945~Masterpiece Theatre~theheatoftheday]]. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
