Barrie Ingham (born 10 February 1932)[1] is an English actor.

Personal life[edit]

Ingham was born in Halifax, West Riding of Yorkshire, the son of Irene (née Bolton) and Harold Ellis Stead Ingham.[2] He was educated at Heath Grammar School and became a Royal Artillery officer. His major theatre debut was at Manchester Library Theatre Company and then he moved to London's Old Vic. He has also played with many leading production companies including the Royal Shakespeare Company, Mermaid Theatre Company and Royal National Theatre.


Barrie has been featured in over 200 British and American films and TV productions. After playing Sejanus in Granada TV's The Caesars (1968), he had a short spell as an ambitious government minister in The Power Game in 1969. In 1971 took the leading role in the series Hine, as an unscrupulous arms dealer. Sir John Gielgud gave him his Broadway debut and he subsequently played in many Broadway musicals, including Copperfield on Broadway, and opposite Angela Lansbury in the London production of Gypsy: A Musical Fable in 1973. When the production transferred to Broadway, Barrie did not stay with the show. He also appeared as King Pellinore in the 1981-82 revival of Camelot to critical acclaim. In 1991-92, he appeared in the final cast of Andrew Lloyd Webber's Aspects of Love, opposite Sarah Brightman on Broadway. His last Broadway outing was in the Broadway musical Jekyll & Hyde, for which while the show did not receive favourable reviews on Broadway, Mr. Ingham did for his performance as Sir Danvers Carew, a mentor to the title character of Dr. Jekyll and the father of Emma Carew, Jekyll's fiancee. Mr. Ingham opened the show in 1997 and subsequently stayed for the next four years till the show closed in January 2001. Ingham was seen as was the final Broadway cast in the 2001 filmed version of the musical. Also acted in theatre in Australia, such as Noël Coward's Private Lives, in Sydney in 1976. He was interviewed during that visit by Bill Collins, and for the Doctor Who fanzine Zerinza.[3] Ingham also had a guest appearance on Star Trek: The Next Generation (in the 1989 episode "Up the Long Ladder")
