Description   [from Freebase]

Bob Peck (23 August 1945 – 4 April 1999) was an English stage, television and film actor. He went to Leeds Modern School in Lawnswood. Peck was educated at the Leeds College of Art where he received a Diploma in Art and Design. Before breaking into film and television work, he was a regular actor with the Royal Shakespeare Company alongside Ian McKellen, Donald Sinden and Judi Dench, and appeared on stage (and later on television) in the RSC production of The Life and Adventures of Nicholas Nickleby as "John Browdie" and "Sir Mulberry Hawk", and as Macduff in Trevor Nunn's acclaimed 1976 stage and 1978 television production of Macbeth. He also appeared in a production of Macbeth in 1982. According to McKellen, Peck is the actor he considers he "learned the most from". Peck's first television role was in 1972 on the BBC's Thirty-Minute Theatre anthology series in the episode "Bypass". He went on to appear in various other television productions such as Z-Cars and Play For Today, but he was probably best known to British audiences for his role as Ronald Craven in the acclaimed 1985 BBC drama serial Edge of Darkness.
