     ONE OF THE FINEST actors in Great Britain, Patrick Malahide  has created characters as diverse as the embittered and scholarly Reverend Casaubon in Middlemarch; the dashing and aristocratic Inspector Roderick Alleyn in Ngaio Marsh's Alleyn Mysteries; the three  related but distinct characterizations of the antagonist in Dennis Potter's exploration of the mind, The Singing Detective; the rakish Mr. Jingle in The Pickwick Papers; and the classic plodding Detective Chisholm  in the smash hit Minder. Perhaps less well known to an international audience is Malahide's extensive 30-year stage career as both actor and  director. In addition to his many leading roles in television and film, he has appeared in over 65 plays by such playwrights as Shakespeare,  Pinter, Strindberg, and Chekhov. Two one-man shows - Judgement and the world premiere of  In the Ruins - drew unanimous critical acclaim.
        
      Malahide's understated and restrained acting style employs a wide vocal range and mastery of accents, suggests underlying depth and darkness, and creates a dramatic tension which has led critics to describe Malahide as 'an actor with edge'.
