Occupation Actor

Malcolm Terris (born 11 January 1941 in Sunderland, County Durham) is a British actor.

He had a lengthy career in a large number of television programmes. Possibly his best-known role was in When the Boat Comes In, a popular 1970s series, where he played the part of Matt Headley. (This was the rather bluff trade union official, the fluctuations of whose relationship with Jack Ford (the leading character) run right through the original series, and whose sister Jack married.)

His film career includes appearances in The First Great Train Robbery (1978), McVicar (1980), The Plague Dogs (1982, voice only), Slayground (1983), The Bounty (1984) as Dr. Thomas Huggan, ship's surgeon, Mata Hari (1985), Revolution (1985), Scandal (1989), and Chaplin (1992).

In April 2011 he appeared as Len Merryman in an episode of Midsomer Murders.

In 1958, and prior to going to drama school, Malcolm was a trainee reporter on the Sunderland Echo, the town's evening paper.
