He was also excellent in the Inspector Morse episode ‘Second Time Around’.
What a quality actor Kenneth is, and I have nothing but the greatest respect for him.

Kenneth had a part in Ken Russell’s ‘The Devils’ too. He was in a ‘Poirot’ this afternoon, so I sat up and watched. He played a crafty thief and a conman!
5ft8 peak and 5ft7 today.

Kenneth made for a convincing Chopin in Lisztomania. Good looking guy too, and he hasn’t changed much!

Kenneth played Frederic Chopin in the Ken Russell film Lisztomania. At 5ft8, he was only a little taller than the real Chopin, but Ken’s today’s height would be spots!
Alas, Chopin only lived 39 years.
Kenneth gets 5ft8 for his peak and 5ft7 for his height today.

I KNEW his face was familiar, but I've never seen the 'Star Wars' movies to any great degree really, buy MSJC wrote to say that Kenneth played Jesus in 'The Life of Brian', which I saw at the pictures, and sat through it twice. (I'd skived off work for the purpose!)
I'd heard so much about that film; in fact there was so much of an outcry that it just HAD to be seen...
It started off with "Stop picking your nose!" I was hooked!
5ft7 now; 5ft8 back in the 'Life of Brian' days!
Thanks MSJC for that useful piece of information! 😊👍
