Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Sylvester McCoy almost became a priest, but thankfully his seminary studies did nothing to stifle his comedic and acting talents. He found early success as a daring stuntman in "The Ken Campbell Roadshow" (which also gave him his stage name), and landed several memorable roles on BBC children's programs. From 1987 to 1989, he portrayed the iconic title alien in the cult sci-fi series "Doctor Who," and later reprised the role in several TV movies and specials. He's since appeared regularly on stage, and been cast as Radagast the Brown in Peter Jackson's adaptation of the fantasy classic "The Hobbit."
