Many people's principle memories of Michael Percival date from when he played the sardonic form-teacher Mr Mitchell in the heyday of the popular BBC school series 'Grange Hill'. He's another of those actors who used to show up regularly, but are infuriatingly difficult to place.
Perhaps you can spot him in feature films like 'Marat/Sade' (1967), 'No Blade of Grass' (1970), and the John Cleese trio 'Clockwise' (1986), 'A Fish Called Wanda' (1988) and 'Fierce Creatures' (1997),
|Unusually casual behind the bar in an episode of 'Inspector Morse'|
|As an art dealer in 'Allo Allo'. As you'd imagine, he has just |
purchased the 'Portrait of the Fallen Madonna with the Big Boobies'.
|Having his car stolen by John Cleese in 'Clockwise' (1986)|
*Sorry to see Michael Percival's name included in the 'In Memoriam' section of Equity magazine's Winter 2015 issue. I can find no further details at the moment.
