Timothy Sydney Robert Hardy, CBE (born October 29, 1925) is an English actor with a long career in the theatre, film and television. He is also an acknowledged expert on the longbow. Hardy was born in Cheltenham, England to Jocelyn (Dugdale) and Henry Harrison Hardy. He was educated at Rugby School and Magdelen College, Oxford University where he gained a BA Honours degree in English. Hardy began his career as a classical actor, It was while playing Henry V that Hardy developed an interest in medieval warfare, and he later wrote and presented an acclaimed television documentary on the subject of the Battle of Agincourt. He has also written two books on the subject of the Longbow, Over the years, Hardy has played a huge range of parts on television and film. His most famous role was as Siegfried Farnon in the long-running All Creatures Great and Small (1978–1990), a stylish and much loved adaptation of James Herriot's novels. Some feel Hardy brought just the right touch of eccentricity and belligerence to the part of Siegfried. He has played former British Prime Minister Winston Churchill in several productions but his most recent roles were as Minister of Magic Cornelius Fudge in the Harry Potter movies, and as Lord Malan in His Master's Voice. He was appointed a Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE) in the Queen's Birthday Honours of 1981.
