Guy Rolfe, a British actor with a penchant for playing villains, died on Oct. 19. Cause of death was not released. He was 91.
After trying his hand at boxing and racecar driving, Rolfe became an actor. In 1936, he began performing on stage and made his first big screen appearance in the Marlene Dietrich film, “Knight Without Armour.” A six-decade career followed with Rolfe acting in more than 40 movies.
Casting directors took advantage of the tall and lean actor’s dark appearance by choosing antagonist roles for him. In “Mr. Sardonicus,” his character’s fate was determined by an audience vote.
