Biography for Edward Woodward

Stolid, dependable British actor usually seen in humorless roles, he became widely known to U. S. audiences playing "The Equalizer," a retired law officer who hires out to hopeless clients and crime victims on the 1985-89 TV series of the same name. He'd already established himself as a star on British television; the 1974 movie Callan was in fact a spinoff of a TV series with the same name (though after the success of "The Equalizer," an enterprising video company gave it a new, more saleable title in this country: The Neutralizer. In films since 1955 (Where There's a Will he also appeared in Becket (1964), The File of the Golden Goose (1969), Young Winston (1972), Stand Up Virgin Soldiers (1977), The Final Option (1982), King David (1985, an outstanding turn as King Saul), and Mister Johnson (1991). He does have two truly memorable movie roles to his credit: the puritanical investigator discovering a British Isle's peculiar pagan customs in the offbeat horror film The Wicker Man (1973), and the title role in the Australian courtroom drama Breaker Morant (1979).
