British actor of stage, screen and TV, often noted for his aggressive characterizations. On stage since a teen, he suffered a nervous breakdown after the critical write-up of his first starring role. Toughening-up, he achieved some claim in his BBC appearance in "I, Claudius," that ran from September to December 1976. Often bearded, he exuded a rugged and titanic stage presence in his many films and TV appearances.

Adept in a number of sports, Blessed has attempted the climb of Mount Everest a number of times, not yet attaining his goal. He has been married twice, with his first marriage from 1958 to January 1975.
