In memory of
(1930 – 2009)
This is an online obituary in memory of Iain Cuthbertson. Iain Cuthbertson (4 January 1930 â€“ 4 September 2009) was a distinguished Scottish character actor. At 6' 4", he was known for his tall imposing build and also his distinctive 'gravelly' heavily accented voice. His most memorable television role was as the criminal and businessman Charlie Endell in both Budgie with Adam Faith and its sequel Charles Endell, Esq. He suffered a crippling stroke in January 1982, which forced him to give up theatre for fear of forgetting his lines. He resumed television and film work, though, as his lines could be written on crib boards. His first role following his stroke was as the villainous Scunner Campbell in Super
Gran (1985). Minor parts in ongoing series include appearances in Z Cars, The Avengers, Inspector Morse, Bulman, Ripping Yarns, The Duchess of Duke Street, Colonel Mannering in Adam Adamant Lives! story D For Destruction and Garron in the Doctor Who story The Ribos Operation. This online memorial is in honour of Iain Cuthbertson, his life and achievements.
