Roy Kinnear Overview:

Character actor, Roy Kinnear, was born Roy Mitchell Kinnear on Jan 8, 1934 in Wigan, England. Kinnear died at the age of 54 on Sep 20, 1988 in Madrid, Spain and was laid to rest in East Sheen and Richmond Cemeteries Cemetery in Richmond, Greater London, England.


British comic character and television satirist, from the Theatre Workshop. Although his performances seemed rather unvarying, his timing was under-valued and, with the right director, he could be consistently funny. Several of his TV series, too, were considerable personal successes. Married to former actress Carmel Cryan, he died following a fall from a horse while filming The Return of the Musketeers.
