English character actor John Woodvine could be seen in roles both sizeable and fleeting in several British films of the '60s, '70s, and '80s. Woodvine was in the casts of Darling (1965), The Devils (1971), Young Winston (1971), Tales of Beatrix Potter (1975), and An American Werewolf in London (1981) (fourth billed in the role of Dr. Hirsch). American Masterpiece Theatre devotees saw plenty of John Woodvine at the beginning of the 1989-1990 season. The actor was one of the four stars (Joan Plowright, Tom Watt, and Phyllis Logan were the other three) of the miniseries And a Nightingale Sang.
