      Throughout the early 1970s, English actor Rupert Frazer established himself as a respected stage performer by appearing in scores of productions around London before making his first on-screen appearance in 1978. That year he appeared in a television adaptation of "Les Miserables." With his appetite for the screen whetted, he went on the next year to appear in four different TV productions, including his first recurring roles in the historical mini-series "Testament of Youth" and the family drama "Penmarric." His first film role came the next year with a small part in "Hussy," the tale of a high-class prostitute. He followed that up in 1981 with another small role in the big-screen adaptation of Ken Follett's spy-thriller novel, "Eye of the Needle." In 1985, he landed a starring role in "A Different Kind of Love," playing a man whose mother wants him to marry, but has to come to terms with the fact that he's gay. Another major part came his way in 1987, when he played the father of a boy who is taken as a prisoner of war in Steven Spielberg's adaptation of J.G. Ballard's autobiographical novel "Empire of the Sun." After that success, he was able to follow it up the next year with his best-known role, starring in "The Girl in a Swing," alongside Meg Tilly. He has since appeared in films such as 1999's romantic drama "Passion's Way," 2008's thriller "The Bank Job," and the comedic drama "Third Star."
