      Roger Livesey

      Roger Livesey

      Highest Rated: 100% The Master of Ballantrae (1953)

      Lowest Rated: 50% Of Human Bondage (1964)

      Birthday: Jun 25, 1906

      Birthplace: Barry, Wales, UK

      Versatile English leading man and character player from the early 1920s with a marvelous, slightly gruff speaking voice, typically in amiably roguish roles. Livesey is probably best known for essaying the leading role of Clive Candy in "The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp" (1943). The inspired filmmakers behind "Blimp," Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger, gave the often underutilized actor two more fine roles in "I Know Where I'm Going" (1945) and "A Matter of Life and Death" (1946). Livesey was one of an acting dynasty which included father Sam Livesey (1873-1936), brothers Jack (1901-1961) and Barry (born 1904), and wife Ursula Jeans.
