As promised, here we are again: we are actively working for Starcon 2019, cause we want our return to Bellaria to be worthy of your expectations. So, we start immediately with the first guest announcement!
The first to celebrate will be fans of Star Wars, Doctor Who, Indiana Jones, Space 1999, James Bond 007, Harry Potter and Game of Thrones, because it is in fact Julian Glover !!!
Julian Wyatt Glover was born on March 27, 1935 in Hampstead, England. It is of English, Scottish and Welsh origin. Primarily a classical theater actor, Glover trained at the National Youth Theater and acted with the Royal Shakespeare Company. He graduated from the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (RADA) and became an associate member.
In the 60s and 70s he became a familiar face to British television viewers appearing in many popular series. His talent for accents and cold expression made him an ideal choice to play refined villains.
During the ’80s, Glover achieved a certain fame in Hollywood with roles in various films.
He played General Maximillian Veers in The Empire Strikes Back (1980), the Greek villain Aristotle Kristatos in the James Bond film Just for Your Eyes (1981) alongside Roger Moore, and was Walter Donovan in Indiana Jones and last crusade (1989). He also lent his voice to the giant spider Aragog in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (2002).
Glover’s television appearances include series like Special Agent (1961), Space: 1999 (1975), Blake’s 7 (1978), Never Say Yes (1982) and Merlin (2008). He also acted in the recurring role of Grand Master Pycelle in 31 episodes of the HBO fantasy series The Throne of Swords (2011).
In Doctor Who he also played King Richard the Lionheart in the episode “The Crusade” (1963), and the Count Scarlioni in “City of Death” (1979).
He was awarded the title of Commander of the Order of the British Empire in the list of awards for the Queen’s 2013 birthday for “services to drama”.
