In the s, he emerged as an actor to be watched and capable when young of playing middle-aged and even old men without resorting to the heavy make-up, that look and smell of glue, and the obligatory facial greasepaint lining that can look artificial and at times absurd.
Porter enjoyed playing classical roles in the theatre best of all and was unusually happy, in a way that few other actors were, when touring with Sir Donald Wolfit.
He found both the Birmingham Rep and Bristol Old Vic much to his liking and the regular audiences attending those playhouses admired this highly dependable actor who was capable of making small roles big without ever stepping out of line and "hogging the limelight".
Before that time he had done more than his fair share of touring since making his debut in After stints with the extrovert Wolfit, travelling the "sticks" in the Forties, and the shy introvert Barry Jackson at Birmingham, learning about "attack" from the former and "taste" from the latter, Porter found himself in Hammersmith again playing Jones at a moment's notice in Galsworthy's The Silver Box at the Lyric Theatre there.
He caught the critical eye and there was no looking back. He joined Gielgud's Company in a "season" and I saw him at the Lyric Hammersmith as Bolingbroke,in February , followed by such costume pieces as The Way of the World and Venice Preserv'd, both in the same season, before he returned to play leading roles.
Since the s he had been one of the leading players at the RSC, for whom his characters had included an outstanding Antonio in The Duchess of Malfi, a striking Barabas in The Jew of Malta, and such "friendly villains" as Shylock and Macbeth as well as a majestic Lear on Wolfit lines caught from watching that grand Lear play the role.
And a Captain Hook in Peter Pan in the s not only of "Eton and Balliol" but as Barrie's play demands "of green-light melodrama" also.
After such a succession of hits, Porter was hardly ever away from plum parts in England, and made appearances on Broadwaybefore returning to London for his award-winning Rosmer in Although now recognised as a star by his fellow actors, he found that the world-wide stardom associated so often with the playing the great parts eluded him, despite a Malvolio of wit and pathos and a Leontes in The Winter's Tale of depth and poignancy at Stratford.
Porter injected more into the theatre than he ever took out of it considering the parts he so finely portrayed and the dignity he gave to the roles he embellished with his out-of-the- ordinary talent - mostly in the theatre classics which he loved best but also in such "moderns" on television as Separate Tables.
Porter used to say he was "lucky" in his parts and accepted philosophically the fact that many a lesser actor than himself caught the stardom which is often accorded to the ordinary rather than the great.
Eric Porter will always be part of television history for his performance in The Forsyte Saga, in But his work in films was also more than appreciable, writes Tom Vallance.
Though his cinema work included classic roles familiar from his stage career, he is best remembered for two Hammer films, The Lost Continent - adapted from Dennis Wheatley's Uncharted Seas, in which he was top billed as the captain whose tramp steamer wanders into an unknown civilisation - and Peter Sasdy's Hands of the Ripper , in which he co-starred with Angharad Rees as a doctor using Freudian theories to try to cure the murderous daughter of Jack the Ripper.
His authoritarian demeanour led to his frequent casting as military men or aristocracy in such films as Charlton Heston's ponderous Antony and Cleopatra - he was Enobarbus , Fall of the Roman Empire , The Heroes of Telemark and Nicholas and Alexandra In Fred Zinnemann's gripping thriller The Day of the Jackal , Porter is the fanatical head of a secret military organisation who believes General de Gaulle has betrayed France by giving Algeria independence, and hires a professional killer to assassinate him.
It was not a large role but a pivotal one to which Porter brought typically chilling conviction. You can find our Community Guidelines in full here.
