Sherlock Holmes, paired with Edward Hardwicke's Watson in seven British tv series and moviesbased on the Arthur Conan Doyle stories (1984-1994). But the tall, aristocratic -- and surprisingly muscular -- actor created many more iconic roles:
The snobbish Freddy Eynsford-Hill in My Fair Lady (1964).
D'Artagnan in The Three Musketeers (1966-67).
Bassanio in The Merchant of Venice (1970).
The overbearing Maxim deWinter in Rebecca (1979)
And, of course, Macbeth (1981).
Not to mention Richard II on stage.
Wake in Fright, and Paul Shenar, who played Orson Welles in The Night that Panicked America.
