#Marks / Signs
1Often plays refined, sinister villains
2Rich smooth voice


1[on For Your Eyes Only (1981)] It was fantastic, I got £500 for my first week - twice what I'd been earning.
2Isla [Isla Blair] and I always give each other gifts on our first nights.
3Jamie [Jamie Glover] gave me a fabulous glass engraved with the Glover family crest for my 50th birthday. I was thrilled. Then I got a message from a film producer asking to talk to me, and as I leapt to my feet I knocked the glass over. It broke - and I didn't get the role either!
4Isla [Isla Blair] always wanted a daughter, which sadly I wasn't able to give her. Then, when our only son Jamie's marriage broke up, Isla thought she'd never have grandchildren. She didn't complain, but it was very sad for her. But Jamie, who's 43 now, found a new partner and we now have two wonderful granddaughters.
5[on Jamie Glover] He's the apple of our eye. He's a fine actor, but he's starting to turn down acting work because he's about to become a director.
6I started with the RSC in 1957 with the likes of Olivier [Laurence Olivier] and Peggy Ashcroft and I've been in many plays, TV shows and movies over the years but I've never made enough money, so retiring now I'm 78 is not an option.


1He played King Richard the Lionheart in both Doctor Who (1963) and Ivanhoe (1982). He was cast in both by the same director, Douglas Camfield.
2He and his son Jamie Glover both have a connection to Doctor Who. Julian appeared on the original series as King Richard I, with both the original Doctor William Hartnell and with William Russell as one of his companions, Ian Chesterton. Jamie later played Russell in An Adventure in Space and Time (2013).
3Has two granddaughters: Evie and Ava Glover.
4Was on the possibles list for Dr. Armstrong and Dr. Bukovsky in the science fiction horror film Lifeforce (1985); Patrick Stewart and Michael Gothard won the roles.
5He was awarded the CBE (Commander of the Order of the British Empire) in the 2013 Queen's Birthday Honours List for his services to drama.
6Has acted in both the Eon James Bond franchise and the Doctor Who franchise (twice).
7Has appeared in two films with Harrison Ford. In the first, Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back (1980), Glover plays General Maximillian Veers, a role later played by his son Jamie Glover in Star Wars: Battlefront II (2005). In the second, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (1989), Ford plays Indiana Jones, except for the opening scene in which the role is played by River Phoenix, who played Ford's son in The Mosquito Coast (1986).
8Has appeared in three movies focusing on apartheid in South Africa: The Jail Diary of Albie Sachs (1981), Mandela (1987) and Cry Freedom (1987).
9Half-brother of musician Robert Wyatt (they share the same mother).
10According to John Glen's memoirs, Julian Glover was the first person to suggest Pierce Brosnan as a potential Bond in 1980.
11Auditioned for the role of James Bond in the 1960s. Later played a villain in the James Bond film For Your Eyes Only (1981).
12Has played General Maximillian Veers in Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back (1980). This character later appeared in several Star Wars related video games, in which the role was played by his son Jamie Glover.
13He and Michael Sheard co-starred as Imperial officers in Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back (1980). Both went on to play villains in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (1989) nine years later: Glover as Walter Donovan and Sheard as Adolf Hitler. In both films, Harrison Ford played one of the protagonists.
14Is the only actor to appear in the Star Wars, James Bond and Indiana Jones film series (Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back (1980), For Your Eyes Only (1981) and Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (1989)) respectively. On all three occasions, he played a villain.
15Alumni of Royal Acadamy of Dramatic Art (RADA) in London, England.

17An Associate Member of Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (RADA).
18His performance in the title role of the Royal Shakespeare Company's staging of "Henry IV, Parts 1 and 2", at the Barbican Centre in London, earned him the Laurence Olivier Award for Best Actor in 1993.
