Stratford Johns Biography

  • Profession: Actor
  • Born: Feb 22, 1925
  • Died: Jan 29, 2002

Character actor Stratford Johns was best known for his unusual "half head of hair." The South African-born Johns spent most of his forty years before the camera in villainous, unsympathetic characterizations. Some of his better-known film roles include Bradshaw in [[Feature~V11581~Cromwell~cromwell]] (1970) and Piso in the British TV miniseries [[Feature~V74619~I, Claudius.~iclaudius]] Stratford Johns gained a whole slew of fans when he was "humanized"as the police inspector in the immensely popular BBC cop series Z Cars; he repeated this character (now promoted to police superintendent) in the spin-off series Softly Softly. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
