Robert Lindsay is an Olivier winning English stage and screen actor who studied at RADA. He is best known for undertaking complex Shakespearean characters both onstage and on screen, as well his role as the hapless dentist Ben Harper in BBC’s My Family (2000-2011).
Robert’s break came in 1977 with the role of Wolfie in sitcom Citizen Smith before he went on to feature in the BBC’s Shakespeare series, tackling roles such as Lysander in A Midsumemr Night’s Dream (1981), and as the witty Lord Benedick in Much Ado about Nothing (1984).
On stage Robert has enjoyed significant success, in particular as part of the 1984 revival of Me and My Girl for which he won an Olivier and later a Tony award upon its transfer to Broadway. He took a second Olivier award in 1996 for his portrayal of the title role in Jean Anouilh’s Becket opposite Sir Derek Jacobi. His third was won the following year after he took on the role of the villainous Fagin in the West End revival of Oliver! (1997). He most recently appeared on stage as King Henry II at the Theatre Royal Haymarket in The Lion in Winter (2011) directed by Trevor Nunn.
Robert's film credits include Wimbledon, Grace of Monaco, Divoricing Jack, Strike it Rich, You're a Fool, Three for All and That'll be the Day.Read Less
