  • Peter Wilton Cushing (26 May, 1913 – 11 August, 1994) was an English actor known for his many appearances in Hammer Films, and to (slightly) younger viewers as the Grand Moff Tarkin, the ostensible primary villain of Star Wars: A New Hope. Cushing played Sherlock Holmes many times, starting with Hammer's "The Hound of the Baskervilles" in 1959, the first Holmes film made in colour. He also played Holmes in 16 episodes of the BBC series "Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes" (1968), of which only six episodes remain. Finally, Cushing played the detective in old age, in "The Masks of Death" (1984) for Channel 4, in what was his own last major appearance onscreen. He was best friends with another actor strongly tied to the world created by Conan Doyle, Christopher Lee.

  • Peter Cushing was an English actor. Cushing played Van Helsing in the Hammer horror films.
  • Peter Cushing (May 26, 1913–August 11, 1994) was an English actor best known for his roles in the Hammer Studios horror films of the 1950s, '60s, and '70s, as well as his performance as Grand Moff Wilhuff Tarkin in Star Wars (1977). Spanning over six decades, his acting career included appearances in more than 100 films, as well as many television, stage and radio roles. Born in Kenley, Surrey, Cushing made his stage debut in 1935 and spent three years at a repertory theater before moving to Hollywood to pursue a film career. After making his motion picture debut in the 1939 film The Man in the Iron Mask, Cushing began to find modest success in American films before returning to England at the outbreak of World War II. Despite performing in a string of roles, including one as Osric in Laurence Olivier's film adaptation of Hamlet (1948), Cushing struggled greatly to find work during this period and began to consider himself a failure. His career was revitalized once he started to work in live television plays, and he soon became one of the most recognizable faces in British television. He earned particular acclaim for his lead performance in a 1954 adaptation of George Orwell's Nineteen Eighty-Four. Cushing gained worldwide fame for his appearances in twenty-two horror films by the independent Hammer Studios, particularly for his role as Baron Victor Frankenstein in six of their seven Frankenstein films, and Dr. Van Helsing in five Dracula films. Cushing often starred alongside actor Christopher Lee, who became one of his closest friends. Cushing appeared in several other Hammer Studios films, including The Abominable Snowman, The Mummy and The Hound of the Baskervilles, the last of which marked the first of many times he portrayed the famous detective Sherlock Holmes throughout his career. Cushing continued to perform a variety of roles, although he was often typecast as a horror film actor. He gained the highest amount of visibility in his career in 1977, when he appeared as Grand Moff Tarkin in the first Star Wars film. Director George Lucas wanted a particularly strong actor for the part and Cushing was his first choice, although the actor claimed he was initially approached to play the Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi. Cushing continued acting into his later years, until his death in 1994 due to prostate cancer. He wrote two autobiographies and was fiercely devoted to his wife of twenty-eight years, Helen Cushing, who died in 1971.
  • Cushing was born in an unknown location in England, possibly in Whitsable (there are some who dispute this, and claim that he is simply part of England that broke into the sea and came to life). Whether or not he was born there, Cushing soon decided Whitsable would be a suitable location to start his cult of vegetable buyers and bicycle riders. After the discovery that he was the product of Sherlock Holmes and God, Cushing decided to head for America, in the hope that he would conquer it and rebuild his empire of Britishness. However, after a fierce battle with Laurence Olivier, Cushing decided to return to his homeland and instead conquer television.
  • Peter Cushing was a British actor born in Kenley, Surrey, England on May 26th, 1913. Along with friend and fellow thespian Christopher Lee, Cushing was a dominant force in the horror genre, specifically during the British "Hammer Horror" era of the 1950s through the 1970s. His first genre film was the 1957 Terence Fisher film The Curse of Frankenstein. Cushing played the lead role of Doctor Victor Frankenstein, a role he would reprise many times over the span of his career. He is also the first actor to play the character under his original name as first envisioned in 1818 by Frankenstein novelist Mary Shelley. This was also Cushing first pairing with Christopher Lee (in a horror film) who played the role of the monster in that film. In that same year, Cushing would go on to play the role of Doctor Rollason in the black and white Hammer film, The Abominable Snowman. Cushing and Lee played opposite one another yet again in, this time taking on roles in another adaptation of a horror classic, Dracula. Cushing played the role of Doctor J. Van Helsing, another classic character whom he would return to in future films, even to the point of playing Van Helsing's modern-day descendent [[Lorrimer Van Helsing in the 1970s. Following Dracula, Cushing returned to the Frankenstein franchise for its first sequel, The Revenge of Frankenstein, although this time his character's name was condensed to Victor Stein. In 1959, Cushing and Lee joined forces once again, this time in Hammer's remake of the Universal Pictures classic, The Mummy. Note: This film was actually a remake of The Mummy's Hand with Lon Chaney, Jr., not the first film starring Boris Karloff. Although The Mummy spawned two semi-sequels, the 1959 film was the only one that featured Peter Cushing. He was slated to appear in the 1971 film Blood from the Mummy's Tomb, but declined in lieu of the recent death of his wife, Violet Helen Beck. Throughout the 1960s, Cushing leap-frogged between franchises, playing Van Helsing in one film, then Baron Frankenstein in another and back again. By the 1970s, Hammer Horror was beginning to lose its popularity, but they still managed to produce one last Frankenstein film and three more Dracula films. Peter Cushing's final genre role was in the horror-comedy film House of the Long Shadows produced in 1983. This was his last role with friend Christopher Lee and the film also included cult luminaries such as Vincent Price and John Carradine. Outside of the horror genre, Cushing is also known for playing the role of the indefatigable Sherlock Holmes in several films in the 1960s. His most widely recognized role however, was that of the villainous Grand Moff Tarkin from the 1977 sci-fi mega-hit Star Wars. In Star Wars, Cushing's character was the supervisor of the evil Darth Vader, played by British bodybuilder David Prowse. Ironically, Cushing and Prowse played characters of a similar dynamic only three years earlier in the last Frankenstein film for Hammer Film Productions, 1974's Frankenstein and the Monster from Hell. Peter Cushing passed away from prostate cancer in Canterbury, England on August 11th, 1994.

He and his older brother David were raised first in Dulwich Village, a south London suburb, and then later back in Surrey. At an early age, Cushing was attracted to acting, inspired by his favorite aunt, who was a stage actress. While at school, Cushing pursued his acting interest in acting and also drawing, a talent he put to good use later in his first job as a government surveyor's assistant in Surrey. At this time, he also dabbled in local amateur theater until moving to London to attend the Guildhall School of Music and Drama on scholarship. He then performed in repertory theater, deciding in 1939 to head for Hollywood, where he made his film debut in The Man in the Iron Mask (1939). Other Hollywood films included A Chump at Oxford (1940) with Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy, Vigil in the Night (1940) and They Dare Not Love (1941). However, after a short stay, he returned to England by way of New York (making brief appearances on Broadway) and Canada. Back in his homeland, he contributed to the war effort during World War II by joining the Entertainment National Services Association. After the war, he performed in the West End and had his big break appearing with Laurence Olivier in Hamlet (1948), in which Cushing's future partner-in-horror Christopher Lee had a bit part. Both actors also appeared in Moulin Rouge (1952) but did not meet until their later horror films. During the 1950s, Cushing became a familiar face on British television, appearing in numerous teleplays, such as 1984 (1954) and Beau Brummell (1954), until the end of the decade when he began his legendary association with Hammer Film Productions in its remakes of the 1930s Universal horror classics. His first Hammer roles included Dr. Frankenstein in Η μάσκα του Φρανκενστάιν (1957), Dr. Van Helsing in Δράκουλας, ο βρικόλακας των Καρπαθίων (1958), and Sherlock Holmes in Η επιστροφή του Σέρλοκ Χολμς (1959). Cushing continued playing the roles of Drs. Frankenstein and Van Helsing, as well as taking on other horror characters, in Hammer films over the next 20 years. He also appeared in films for the other major horror producer of the time, Amicus Productions, including Οι πέντε μελλοθάνατοι (1965) and its later horror anthologies, a couple of Dr. Who films (1965, 1966), I, Monster (1971), and others. By the mid-1970s, these companies had stopped production, but Cushing, firmly established as a horror star, continued in the genre for some time thereafter. Perhaps his best-known appearance outside of horror films was as Grand Moff Tarkin in George Lucas' phenomenally successful science fiction film Ο πόλεμος των άστρων (1977). Biggles (1986) was Cushing's last film before his retirement, during which he made a few television appearances, wrote two autobiographies and pursued his hobbies of bird watching and painting. In 1989, he was made an Officer of the Order of the British Empire in recognition of his contributions to the acting profession in Britain and worldwide.

Cushing told George Lucas this, and asked if he could wear slippers instead. Lucas agreed, and shot Cushing from the waist up for nearly all his scenes to compensate for Cushing's slippers.He was an artist, skilled in drawing and painting; as a young struggling actor, he supplemented his income by selling scarves that he hand-painted and later, as an established actor, had showings of his water colors.Withdrew from the film Blood from the Mummy's Tomb (1971) due to the death of his wife. His role was assumed by Andrew Keir.Was guest of honor at the Famous Monsters of Filmland Convention in New York City in 1975. After receiving a thunderous ovation from those in attendance, he looked at everyone and said, "Have you ever felt unloved?"His sketch of Sherlock Holmes became the official logo for the Northern Musgraves, a British Sherlock Holmes society.He was preferred to original Dr. Who (1963) lead actor William Hartnell as star of Dr. Who and the Daleks (1965) because he was more widely recognized by American audiences.During a television interview, he confessed that fellow actor Christopher Lee had telephoned him earlier that evening to "Wish me luck!".Was good friends with Christopher Lee. After he died, Lee said in an interview that he never felt closer and more open to any of his other friends than he felt to Peter.Carrie Fisher said in an interview that doing her scenes with him in Ο πόλεμος των άστρων (1977) were difficult for two reasons: she thought the lines were ridiculous and she found Peter to be so polite and charming off camera that it was hard to project the sense of disdain that her character, Princess Leia Organa, held for his character, Grand Moff Tarkin.George Lucas originally planned to use archival footage of Cushing from Ο πόλεμος των άστρων (1977) for insertion into Star Wars: Επεισόδιο 3 - Η εκδίκηση των Σιθ (2005). This would have made Episode III Cushing's final, albeit posthumous, collaboration with Christopher Lee. However, none of the footage was suitable to Lucas' needs. This may be because Grand Moff Tarkin only appears in long shots, due to the pain associated with wearing the boots Cushing was wearing. Therefore, Wayne Pygram was cast, and made to wear prosthetic make-up so that he would resemble Cushing.Prior to casting Cushing as Grand Moff Tarkin in Ο πόλεμος των άστρων (1977), George Lucas considered using him as Obi-Wan Kenobi (a role that ultimately went to Alec Guinness).In his later years, he and Joyce DeWitt of Three's Company (1977) fame became transatlantic pen pals, when the two became part of the voice-over ensemble for the animated film Walpurgis Night. Peter recorded his role in England, while Joyce later commenced recording in California, alongside his old friend Ferdy Mayne. It was during this time that Joyce, being a fan of both classic films and Shakespeare's works, and Peter, an admirer of the American West, enjoyed their friendship by post.Described by many presenters as the best interviewee they had.Wrote to BBC program Jim'll Fix It (1975) asking that a new rose be bred and named after his late wife. Jimmy Savile agreed and the process was filmed ending with the creation of a new strain of yellow rose being presented to Peter.Cushing reprised his role, with dialog, from his last film Biggles (1986) in the video for the movie's theme song "No Turning Back" by The Immortals. He appears at the end to tell the camera: "I'm a restless sort of guy." Technically, this makes it his last performance and his last line of dialog.Had appeared as Osric in Hamlet (1948). This was also his first film with Christopher Lee. Alec Guinness also played Osric in John Gielgud's 1934 theatrical production. Cushing, Lee and Guinness all later appeared in the Star Wars films.Only one of the main characters from Star Wars not to appear in the sequels (for the obvious reason).He was so ubiquitous on live television in Britain in the early 1950s that one popular comedian joked: "You know what television is, don't you? It's Peter Cushing with knobs.".He was awarded the OBE (Officer of the Order of the British Empire) in the 1989 Queen's New Year Honours List for his services to drama.Originally cast as Dr. Vesalius in Ο σατανικός δόκτωρ Φάιμπς (1971), but declined as his wife was in poor health at the time.He bought a seafront home in 1959 in Whitstable, Kent, England upon retiring. There is a pub there today dedicated to his memory, "The Peter Cushing".He and Christopher Lee appeared together in two films outside of the Hammer Studio Horror genre: their first film together was Hamlet (1948), and they appeared together in Moulin Rouge (1952). They later went to appear in separate films in the Star Wars series: Cushing in Ο πόλεμος των άστρων (1977), and Lee in Star Wars: Επεισόδιο 2 - Η επίθεση των κλώνων (2002) and Star Wars: Επεισόδιο 3 - Η εκδίκηση των Σιθ (2005). They would also appear separately in adaptations of Alexandre Dumas pere's Musketeer novels: Cushing appeared in The Man in the Iron Mask (1939), while Lee appeared in The Three Musketeers (1973), The Four Musketeers (1974) and The Return of the Musketeers (1989).Although he and Christopher Lee were often mortal enemies on-screen, off-screen they were inseparable friends.In 1945 with no money for presents, he found a large piece of silk, cut it into a neat square, painted Dickens characters on it and gave it to his wife as a present. She later loaned it to a friend who wore it to a party where it was seen by a textile manufacturer who gave Peter a contract as a silk scarf designer. Amongst those he designed were those for the Festival of Britain and the Coronation.He made seven films with Michael Ripper: Η Εκδίκησις του Φρανκενστάιν (1958), Ο βρυκόλακας των πυραμίδων (1959), Η εκδίκησις του Δράκουλα (1960), Ο κήπος τον μαρτυριών (1967), Ο σαρκοφάγος βρυκόλακας (1973) and Legend of the Werewolf (1975).Along with Arnold Marlé and Wolfe Morris, he was one of only three actors to reprise their roles from BBC Sunday-Night Theatre: The Creature (1955) in the film remake The Abominable Snowman (1957).He appeared in 13 films directed by Terence Fisher: Η μάσκα του Φρανκενστάιν (1957), Δράκουλας, ο βρικόλακας των Καρπαθίων (1958), Η Εκδίκησις του Φρανκενστάιν (1958), Η επιστροφή του Σέρλοκ Χολμς (1959), Ο βρυκόλακας των πυραμίδων (1959), Η εκδίκησις του Δράκουλα (1960), Sword of Sherwood Forest (1960), Τα πύρινα μάτια του μαύρου πύργου (1964), Island of Terror (1966), Η μνηστή του Φρανκενστάιν (1967), Night of the Big Heat (1967), Ο Φρανκενστάιν πρέπει να πεθάνει (1969) and Ο Φρανκενστάιν και το τέρας της κολάσεως (1974).He made five films with Miles Malleson: Δράκουλας, ο βρικόλακας των Καρπαθίων (1958), Η επιστροφή του Σέρλοκ Χολμς (1959), Η εκδίκησις του Δράκουλα (1960), The Hellfire Club (1961) and Fury at Smugglers' Bay (1961).Brother-in-law of Reginald Beck.He was considered for the role of Dr. Hans Fallanda, Sir Percy Heseltine and Dr. Armstrong in Lifeforce (1985).He made four films with Michael Gough: Δράκουλας, ο βρικόλακας των Καρπαθίων (1958), Οι πέντε μελλοθάνατοι (1965), Η νεκροκεφαλή εκδικείται (1965) and Άκρως... τρελό και απόρρητο (1984).

Hamlet won Best Picture.Personal Quotes (22)Who wants to see me as Hamlet? Very few. But millions want to see me as Frankenstein so that's the one I do.If I played Hamlet, they'd call it a horror film.Teeth are a vitally important part of an actor's equipment. I have over 30 toothbrushes at home and always keep a good supply at the studio.I hate the word 'hate'.[on the wig he had to wear for Ο Φρανκενστάιν και το τέρας της κολάσεως (1974)] It made me look like Helen Hayes."You have to have a sense of humour, darling, to be alive. Even a bit mad. It helps to be mad." - (1991)"People look at me as if I were some sort of monster, but I can't think why. In my macabre pictures, I have either been a monster-maker or a monster-destroyer, but never a monster. Actually, I'm a gentle fellow. Never harmed a fly. I love animals, and when I'm in the country I'm a keen bird-watcher." - ABC Film Review (Nov 1964)There is little chance for a person to exercise the imagination today in this complex, programmed society we have.Since Helen passed on I can't find anything; the heart, quite simply, has gone out of everything. Time is interminable, the loneliness is almost unbearable and the only thing that keeps me going is the knowledge that my dear Helen and I will be united again some day. To join Helen is my only ambition. You have my permission to publish that... really, you know dear boy, it's all just killing time. Please say that. - Radio Times 1972"You cannot make a film like this without integrity. To make the audiences believe in you, you must believe utterly in what you are doing." - (1972)My criterion for accepting a role isn't based on what I would like to do. I try to consider what the audience would like to see me do and I thought kids would adore Star Wars."Strangely enough, I don't like horror pictures at all. I love to make them because they give pleasure to people, but my favourite types of films are much more subtle than horror. I like to watch films like Bridge Over the River Kwai, The Apartment or lovely musicals." - (1980s)As far back as I can remember, I had a passion for 'dressing up' and playing games of 'Let's Pretend', which are, of course, the basic principals of acting, and if you are lucky enough, you get paid for so doing, hard work though it may be.When Helen passed on six years ago I lost the only joy in life that I ever wanted. She was my whole life and without her there is no meaning. I am simply killing time, so to speak, until that wonderful day when we are together again.Television is rather a frightening business. But I get all the relaxation I want from my collection of model soldiers.There are all sorts of reasons why I don't do much work in the theater, the main one being that after two performances I feel I've given all I can. I hate repetition, I really do. It's like asking a painter to paint he same picture every day of his life.In the early days I played a lot of comedy in the theater and on television. But once an actor becomes well known in any kind of part, he tends to get stereotyped. After I played Frankenstein, I was only thought of in that light. Of course, some actors are better at drama and some are better at comedy. But they can certainly have a stab at both. An actor should be able to do it all."It gives me the most wonderful feeling. These dear people love me so much and want to see me. The astonishing thing is that when I made the Frankenstein and Dracula movies almost 30 years ago the young audiences who see me now weren't even born yet. A new generation has grown up with my films. And the original audiences are still able to see me in new pictures. So, as long as these films are made I will have a life in this business -- for which I'm eternally grateful." (from a 1985 "Starlog" interview)An actor's job is to entertain and I'm glad to say that my films succeeded in that respect.[on Vincent Price] A dear, charming man with a great sense of humor. Strictly a professional, who cares far more about his work than he allows the public to know. I am extremely fond of him and bask in his gentle kindness and warmth.Every part is approached in the same manner - gleaning all I can from what the author has written. When called for, I add reaction to any given circumstance such as I've witnessed and observed in others through life, applying the emotion in terms of the character as opposed to the way I might react personally.[advice to Simon Ward, who was delivering his lines at an urgent pace] Now you know, dear boy, that at the end of every line leave a very tiny gap so they can get the scissors in.Salary (1)Shock Waves (1977) $5.000 File:Placeholder File:Placeholder
  • Peter Cushing (26. maj 1913 – 11. august 1994) var en engelsk skuespiller med kultiveret fremtoning, skarp profil og en stålsat vilje hvad enten i rollen som helt eller uhyre.
