Tom Bell

1 August 1933 to 3 October 2006

Bell's breakthrough performance in The L-Shaped Room (1962) proved atypical, as he was more often cast as darkly menacing characters on both sides of the law. These roles came mostly on television, in series such as Out (1978) and Prime Suspect (1991), with infrequent film appearances including The Krays (1990).
