FactAn Associate Member of RADA.

Derek Jacobi is a British actor who has had an extensive career in film, television and theatre. He was born in Leytonstone, London on 22 October 1938, the son of Daisy (née Bevan) and George Jacobi, who ran a tobacconist’s shop. He was educated at the William Ellis School in Islington and then at Trinity College, Cambridge, where he read History. He later said that he “didn’t really enjoy” his time at Cambridge and that he “wasn’t very good” at his studies.

Jacobi made his professional stage debut in 1956, appearing in repertory theatre in Bath. He made his West End debut in 1958 in A Passage to India, and his film debut the following year in The Entertainer. In 1960, he won a scholarship to study at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art and he subsequently appeared in several Shakespearean plays with the Royal Shakespeare Company.

Jacobi’s breakthrough role came in 1976 when he played the title role in the BBC serial I, Claudius. He went on to appear in a number of high-profile films, including The Elephant Man (1980), Gandhi (1982), The Bounty (1984) and My Left Foot (1989). He has also had an extensive career in television, appearing in series such as The Naked Civil Servant (1975), Lovejoy (1986-1994) and Vicious (2013-2016).

Jacobi has been married twice: first to actress Sheila Ball from 1963 to 1974, with whom he had two sons; and secondly to actress Jane Lapotaire from 1984 to present. He has two daughters from his second marriage. His net worth is estimated to be around £5 million.

1I've been acting for 33 years. I've proved I can do it. So any performance now has got to be deeper and better than that, nothing to do with ego, bravura, look-at-me acting. That is an invitation to the audience to assess your ability, and it gets in the way. The object is to get past that and lose yourself in your belief in the person you are trying to create. To find something absolutely real. But I constantly hope to go further than I manage to do. DJ, 1992 interview
2Acting is painting, not photography, but painting is just as 'real' as photography. As an actor conscious that you are in a theatre, you still have to make it look as spontaneous as if you did not know that you are being watched by 1,000 pairs of eyes.
3It's as though you have crossed Niagara on a tightrope 250 times and, on the 251st crossing---vertigo. You are convinced you can't move across the stage without falling over. You go rigid from the knees down. You suddenly wonder, why am I doing this? I knew I'd got to get through a whole season, three spanking parts, and that if I ran away, I would never act on stage again. It was that knowledge that shocked me out of my illness. But I had a very bad time in the first weeks. - DJ, regarding his two-year spell of stage fright and subsequent return in 1982 to the Royal Shakespeare Company
4I've now been there, done that, and got the T-shirt. We just went to the registry office, signed a bit of paper and it was all over. We didn't have a bit party, but we had twenty-five friends to lunch. It was very quiet though, all over in a morning. - On his civil partnership ceremony

20Along with Mark Gatiss, he is one of only two actors to play both the "Doctor Who" character the Doctor and his greatest enemy, the Master. He played the former (as well as a failed television writer named Martin Bannister) in the Big Finish "Doctor Who Unbound" audio drama Deadline.
