Author Biography
Onley, Derek (Author)
Actor Paul Scofield was born in Hurstpierpoint, England on January 21, 1922. Before World War II, he trained at the Croydon Repertory Theater School and London's Mask Theater School. He was barred from service for medical reasons, so he spent the war years touring in plays, entertaining troops and acting in repertory in factory towns around the country. He married actress Joy Parker in 1943 and they had two children together.

He was primarily a stage actor, but made several movies including A Delicate Balance, Henry V, Quiz Show, The Crucible and A Man for All Season, for which he won an Oscar, an Academy Award, and a BAFTA Award. He also won a Tony Award for the 1961 New York production of A Man for All Seasons. In 2001, he was named a Companion of Honor, which is one of England's top honors and is limited to 65 living people. He died of leukemia on March 19, 2008.
