He also appeared alongside other notable actors in massive blockbusters, such as Christopher Reeve in "Superman III" (1983), a young Jennifer Connelly and David Bowie in the fantasy hit "Labyrinth" (1986), and Sean Connery in Russell Mulcahy's original "Highlander" (1986). Malcolm also worked on several British television series, most notably as Justin, the gay ex-husband of Jennifer Saunders' character Edina in the hit sitcom "Absolutely Fabulous," a recurring role he revisited throughout the show's several revivals and specials.
