Brian Blessed

Best known for his booming voice. Boisterous Brit Brian Blessed is known for his hearty, king-sized portrayals on film and TV. A giant of a man accompanied by an eloquent wit and booming, operatic voice, Brian was born in 1936 and grew up in the mining village of Goldthorpe in South Yorkshire. His father was a miner who wanted a better life for his son; Brian lost three uncles in the pit. At a young age he displayed an acute talent for acting in school productions, but also had a penchant for boxing, a direction that would be short-lived.
