Harry Locke

Harry Locke (10 December 1913 – 17 September 1987) was a British character actor. He was born and died in London. He was a familiar face in three decades of British cinema, with appearances including Passport to Pimlico (1949), Reach for the Sky (1956), Carry On Nurse (1959), The Devil-Ship Pirates (1964) and The Family Way (1966). In 1969 he appeared in Randall and Hopkirk (Deceased) as a night porter. In 1972, he played Platon Karataev in the BBC production of War and Peace—a brilliant performance as a "minor" character who advances the development of Pierre Bezukhov, the central character.
