Rodney Litchfield is an English actor born in Wigan, Lancashire.

Litchfield's first TV appearances were in the 1980s, the first of which was the episode "First Leg" of the British drama Travelling Man.

He also made brief appearances in shows like Juliet Bravo, A Touch of Frost, Cracker, Hetty Wainthropp Investigates, Heartbeat and Peter Kay's Phoenix Nights.

His most well remembered TV appearances were in Phil Mealey's and Craig Cash's dry humoured sitcom Early Doors which starred Litchfield as Tommy, a miserable pensioner who sits in the corner of the pub trying to avoid any social interaction with the rest of the pub's regulars including avoiding accepting free drinks from anybody in case he is coerced into buying a 'round'.

After starring in both the sitcom's two series', he was later seen rolling up in a van on the cobbles of Coronation Street as character Wilfred Morton with granddaughter Jodie (played by Samantha Seager) who were renovating the old Bakery owned by Diggory Compton into a takeaway. Michael Starke plays Litchfield's son Jerry Morton.
