Description

Richard Harris was one of the most successful actors of his generation. Though he was hailed for extraordinary early films, such as "This Sporting Life", and "A Man Called Horse", his prodigious appetites for drink (and drugs) and women ensured that his turbulent life featured as much in the media as did his films. Always driven by a restless intellect, Harris published a novel, wrote poetry and sang his own songs, as well as performing in the hit musical "Camelot". His career was revived with movies as diverse as the chilling "Unforgiven", the epic "Gladiator" and, of course, his role as Professor Albus Dumbledore in the first two Harry Potter films. This biography explores his background in Ireland, his public successes and failures, his on-going battle with his own demons and his health.show more
