Hordern, Michael Biography




biography of Hordern, Michael

Hordern, Michael Murray
3 October 1911, Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire, England, UK
2 May 1995, Oxford, Oxfordshire, England, UK (kidney disease)
Following a brief teaching career, Michael Hordern made his stage debut in 1937. He made his film debut in 1939, but his career was stalled by WWII. He resumed his acting career in 1946, both in theatre and films. He hit his stride in the 1960s playing befuddled characters, particularly stuffy public officials. He was knighted in 1983.

Some of Hordern's finest work was not in films or television but on radio: His performance as Gandalf in the BBC's radio adaptation of The Lord of the Rings was arguably the definitive portrayal of that character (contrast Hordern's Gandalf with that of Ian McKellen in the 3-part film adaptation of The Lord of the Rings directed by Peter Jackson).
Deep Thought

Sir Michael Hordern established himself as one of the premier stage actors of his generation, and also had a flourishing career as a supporting player in British and international cinema. Born on October 3, 1911, in Berkhampsted, England, Michael Murray Hordern was the son of John Calvery Hordern, a British Army captain, and the former Margareta Emily Murray. After receiving his education and graduating from Brighton College, Hordern supported himself as a teacher and salesman before launching a life in the theater in 1937, after having partaken in amateur theatricals in the evenings and on weekends. He debuted in the cinema in a bit role in 'Carol Reed (I)' (qv)'s _A Girl Must Live (1939)_ (qv) (1939) and also had a bit part in _Girl in the News (1940)_ (qv) (1940), but his acting career went on hiatus when Britain went to war against the forces of fascism. Hordern joined the Royal Navy for the duration in 1940. After being demobilized in 1945, Hordern returned to the stage, and also began appearing regular in films and on television. He established his reputation as a first-rate stage actor, excelling in classical and Shakespearan roles at the Old Vic and at the Shakespeare Memorial Theatre at Stratford. He befriended a young 'Richard Burton (I)' (qv) in the early 1950s, and the two would appear together in eight films starting with _Alexander the Great (1956)_ (qv) in 1956, including, most memorably, _The Spy Who Came in from the Cold (1965)_ (qv) and _Anne of the Thousand Days (1969)_ (qv). Hordern is most likely known to audiences for his portrayal of Jacob Marley in the 1951 British adaptation of Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol" (known as _Scrooge (1951)_ (qv)) starring 'Alastair Sim' (qv), and as the off-screen narrator of Stanley Kubrick's _Barry Lyndon (1975)_ (qv), which showcased his mellifluous voice. (Hordern was an outstanding radio actor.) Most critics credit his portrayal of the disillusioned journalist in _England Made Me (1973)_ (qv) as his finest screen role. Michael Hordern was knighted in 1983 for his services to the stage, and he wrote his autobiography, "A World Elsewhere," which was published in 1993. His masterful portrayal of Prospero in the BBC's _The Tempest (1980) (TV)_ (qv) likely will remain the definite portrait for years to come. He was also a superb _King Lear (1982) (TV)_ (qv). Sir Michael Hordern died from kidney disease in Oxford, England on May 2, 1995, at the age of 83. He left behind a daughter by his wife, the former Grace Eveline Mortimer, who had precede him in death in 1986 after 42 years of marriage.
