Clive Russell was born in England but raised in Fife, Scotland, UK from 3 months old. He originally trained as a teacher, but when his drama lecturer resigned and took over a theatre in Bolton, Russell joined him. Russell has been working solely in film and television since 1991.
Due to his imposing 6’ 5” stature and very husky toned voice Clive often plays tough characters. He is best known for his roles as Brynden ‘Blackfish’ Tully in Game of Thrones, Tyr in Thor: The Dark World, Captain Tanner in Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows and Lord Lovat in Outlander. Clive has also starred in The Wolfman, Ripper Street, King Arthur, Waking the Dead, The Hatton Garden Job and has even provided voice overs for The Amazing World of Gumball.
Clive will be signing throughout the day including a Q&A and photo shoot.
