Paul Scofield

Biography:Paul Scofield David Paul Scofield, CH, CBE (born January 21, 1922) is an English actor who was born in Sussex.

Scofield is not well-known to cinema-goers, despite having won the Academy Award for Best Actor for his role in A Man for All Seasons (1966). He began his stage career in 1940, and was soon being compared with Laurence Olivier. Although his range is considerable, he has tended to be selective, preferring classical roles to those which might have won him more popular acclaim. He has won several awards for his stage appearances, including a Tony for the original stage version of A Man for All Seasons, and was Salieri in the original stage production of Amadeus in 1979.

In 1994 he starred in Quiz Show, a film directed by Robert Redford about the quiz show scandal in the United States in the 1950s. Scofield played Mark Van Doren, father of Charles Van Doren, the man at the center of the scandal, and received a nomination for Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor. He has rejected the offer of a knighthood on three occasions, but was appointed CBE in 1956 and became a Companion of Honour in 2001.

Scofield is also a voice actor and narrated a radio version of C.S. Lewis's The Chronicles of Narnia which was put out by Focus on the Family.
