Character actor, Terence Alexander, was born Terence Joseph Alexander on Mar 11, 1923 in Islington, England. Alexander appeared in over 160 film and TV roles, mostly TV. Alexander died at the age of 86 on May 28, 2009 in London, England .


Round-faced and pushy-looking, Terence Alexander started a regular film career in the 1950s, usually appearing in light roles -- as smooth, upper-class charmers, beguiling rogues or amiable oafs. He was a natural for a part in The League of Gentlemen -- and it was probably his best film role.
