“I do not think we have the right to bother,” – said Richard Harris, the famous Irish actor, who died at age 72 from cancer. Probably the most famous in the world Harris as King Arthur in “Camelot” and “Englishman” of “Unforgiven” and our viewers remember him in Soviet times as Cromwell in the film. In recent years, Harris went to the Russian screen: he played the Emperor Marcus Aurelius in “Gladiator”, and recently became a wizard Dumbledore in “Harry Potter.”
In addition, Harris was invited Nikita Mikhalkov in his famous film “The Barber of Siberia”, where he played a memorable role designer “lesostriguschey machine.”
He was born October 1, 1930 (according to other sources – in 1933) in the city of Limerick in Ireland. His family belonged to the wealthy, and the son of Richard’s father was hoping to see an assistant and successor to the family business. However, a teenager 10 years since I became interested in rugby, speaking for the first junior and then senior team. With 17 years he began to play on the stage as part of a dramatic groups of Limerick. After passing the peak of fitness, Harris decided to devote himself to the theater, and in 1955 enrolled at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art. Talent and temperament allowed the young actor quickly establish itself on the stage. The dream to act in films was realized in 1958. After bit parts in several obscure films, he gets a role in a film T.Garneta “Irresistible Beauty” (A Terrible Beauty, 1960) – an adventurous drama on the theme of the Irish revolution. Box-office success and laudatory reviews have created fertile ground for the conclusion of a contract with Hollywood.
Having played in “Guns of Navarone” (The Guns of Navarone, 1961) next to the screen with such masters as Gregory Peck and Anthony Quinn in “Mutiny on the Bounty” (Mutiny on the Bounty, 1962) – Marlon Brando for whom he was a bit like (profile of a Roman patrician, a haughty look), Harris was a good school, but to fully show individuality he succeeded only in 1963 in the movie “This Sporting Life” (This Sporting Life; “This Sporting Life “in the Russian box office) thanks to Anderson’s original directing. The role of the rugby player Frank Machin, a powerful live ram, an independent, self-confident and at the same time emotional vulnerability of the generation of the 1960s, became the high point of the actor. Harris received the Palme d’Or of the XVI International Film Festival in Cannes, came to the attention of masters of European cinema. Antonioni invited him to one of the main roles (Corrado Dzeller) in his film “Red Desert” (Il Deserto rosso, 1964).
Later in his repertoire appear heroes, adventurous. In cases where the director and screenplay and raised the historical thriller or tape over the middle-Harris deservedly shared the success of the film. In the sports drama “Hero” (another name for “Bloomfield” – Bloomfield, 1970), he not only played rugby star, but also acted as director.
Having survived the recession in the 1980s., The actor removed a lot in the last decade of the twentieth century. Visibly aged, released thick beard, Harris continues to play in the theater (the title role in “Henry IV” L.Pirandello in London), looks colorful supporting roles in blockbusters famous directors. In superproject of a magical child from the book Rowling Harris was invited to appear for no fee, and for a percentage of fees in seven of the future picture. At first he resisted until he was coaxed 11-year-old granddaughter.
As producers will now get out, it is not clear, because revive the six movies on a computer actor who is known that he died – a task almost impossible.
