A member of the BBC's repertory company in the 1940s, British character actor Preston Lockwood spent the bulk of his career on stage and only sporadically ventured into feature films. He made his film debut in David Lean's version of Great Expectations (1946) but did not appear in another film until 1970 when he portrayed Trebonius in Julius Caesar. Other film credits include Time Bandits (1981) and At Bertram's Hotel (1986). On television, he was a semi-regular on the mid-'80s series Tenko: he also appeared on Miss Marple and The Vicar of Dibley. Lockwood passed away in the actors' benevolent home, Denville Hall in Middlesex, England on April 24, 1996.
