Julian Glover is one of those actors who must have an amazing agent, because this guy has been in some of the biggest franchises of all time – and I’ll skim over his early career just so I can gush about them. Glover began acting in his younger years with the National Youth Theatre and the Royal Shakespeare Company. In the 1950s he began to transition into television acting, and has since appeared on such TV shows as The Avengers, The Saint, Doctor Who, Remington Steele, and Game of Thrones. In terms of movies, Glover has acted in films including Star Wars: Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, For Your Eyes Only, and Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (he voiced a spider). Just to recap, he’s been in Star Wars, Indiana Jones, James Bond and Harry Potter movies. And he’s at the centre of a scene that terrified me when I was younger, which you can see below. Julian Glover turns 78 today.
