About Paul Scofield (1922 – 2008)

Paul Scofield was the son of a schoolmaster, and grew up in West Sussex. Paul was bitten by the acting bug while still in high school. As a teenager, he began studying acting at the Croydon Repertory Theatre School in 1939, and then entered The Mask Theatre School in 1940.

During World War 11, Paul joined touring companies and got more experience under his belt by performing for the troops. After the end of the war, Paul joined the Birmingham Repertory Theatre, and eventually wound up at Stratford-upon-Avon. For years he was a leading member of the Royal Shakespeare Company, and that is where he focused his acting efforts; Paul truly loved the stage.

This British stage actor has done just a few films, as he was very careful and very particular in choosing his film roles, and television projects, having high standards. For many years, he preferred roles in projects that had been adapted from plays, books, and ensemble pieces

Prior to the 1966 film version of A Man For All Seasons, Scofield played More on Broadway and the London stage. Not only did he win the Best Actor Oscar, he also won a Tony.

Paul also won an Emmy for his performance in the 1969 TV drama, Male Of The Species.

During the 1990s, Paul enjoyed a variety of work including radio and animation voice-overs for such shows as Rashi: A Light After The Dark Ages, and Animal Farm.
