Though actor David Bradley is perhaps best known to younger generations as the craggy-faced Argus Filch, irascible caretaker of the Hogwarts Academy, in each of the Harry Potter adaptations, that role succeeded Bradley's lengthy and formidable career as a character actor in predominantly British films and television productions. The dramatist officially debuted on-camera in the early '70s, but his activity proliferated during the 1990s and 2000s; as time rolled on, Bradley increasingly specialized in played sadistic headmasters, wizened barristers, or other figures with a slightly nasty authoritarian bent. Outside of Potter, Bradley's projects included the miniseries Our Mutual Friend (1998), the features Tom's Midnight Garden (1998) and Exorcist: The Beginning (2004), and the telemovie Sweeney Todd (2005).
