Edward Woodward was an English actor.


Born in Croydon, Surrey, Woodward became a member of the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts after the Second World War, making his professional stage debut in 1946 and film debut in 1955, for the film adaptation of his earlier stage success Where There's a Will.

Woodward made several supporting roles in films before memorably playing Sergeant Neil Howie in the cult classic The Wicker Man. He found great success on television, both as the spy David Callan, and in the American thriller series The Equalizer.

Woodward continued to act until his passing in 2009.


Woodward's stage successes also included three musical roles, as John Brooke in A Girl Called Jo, Charles Condomine in High Spirits, and Sidney Carton in Two Cities.

In addition, Woodward had one film role for which singing was required, as Lieutenant Harry "Breaker" Morant in Breaker Morant. Woodward frequently made use of his excellent tenor voice to release romantic albums, beginning with This Man Alone in 1969, and concluding with A Romantic Hour in 1980.
