Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Predominantly a television actor whose credits on British television have been extensive since the late 1970s, Robert Pugh became best-known internationally as the unsavoury wildling Craster in "Game of Thrones" (HBO 2012- ) from the second series onwards. Little-known outside of the U.K. before this role, audiences in his home country were most likely to know him from an earlier role as repressed priest Father Matthew in "The Lakes" (BBC 1997-99), a hit drama from well-respected English screenwriter Jimmy McGovern. Born in Wales, Pugh was raised as a speaker of the Welsh language as well as English. He attended the Rose Bruford School of Theatre and Performance in London and graduated in 1976, the same year as he took his first screen role in the short-lived BBC medical drama "Angels." Early film credits included small roles in the cult low-budget science fiction film "Inseminoid" (1981) and "Britannia Hospital" (1982) by seminal UK film director Lindsay Anderson. It was television upon which his stoic physicality and deep Welsh baritone would make a mark in the ensuing years, including one-off roles in such iconic British series as "Inspector Morse" (ITV 1987-2000), "Prime Suspect" (ITV 1991-2006)...
