Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Bernard Hepton is a veteran British actor who has been appearing on stage, television, and film for over 60 years. Hepton made his acting debut in the 1949 movie, "A Boy, a Girl and a Bike" (in an uncredited role). It was not until the late 1960s that Hepton began landing substantial television roles, including parts in "Great Expectations" and "Middlemarch." Hepton continued working throughout the 1970s, including a guest appearance in the first series of "Catweazle" (1970), as well as "The Six Wives of Henry VIII" (1970) and "Elizabeth R" (1971). But Hepton's most renowned role of the decade was playing the Kommandant in the popular series "Colditz" from 1972 through 1974, for which he was nominated for a BAFTA Award in 1974, as well as Albert Foiret on "Secret Army" (from 1977 through 1979). Although he's appeared far more on television than in motion pictures, he has landed roles in several acclaimed films, including the original "Get Carter" (1971), "Voyage of the Damned" (1976), and "Gandhi" (1982).
