Bearded actor in 80's UK videos?

Postby jacko » Wed Sep 01, 2010 7:05 am

Watching the Music clip of 'Mirror Mirror' by Dollar recently has got me wondering. Does anyone know who is the Old bearded actor, that plays the Toy maker in the clip?. He has been in countless music videos from England in the 80's. These are the ones that i can remember he being in:

The Quick's 'rhythm of the jungle' ( Wichdoctor)
Simple Minds 'Love Song' ( night club guest)
Billy Joel 'Pressure' ( A guest trying to drink a shaky glass of wine)
UK Squeeze'Black Coffee in Bed' ( party guest)
Ultravox'Vienna' ( Husband that shoots his wifes lover)
Haircut 100 'Love Plus One'( big game hunter)
Toyah ' Thunder in the Mountains' ( sorcerer)
Dollar 'Mirror mirror' ( toy maker )
Bonnie Tyler 'Total eclipse of the heart ( Headmaster)

After sampling four of the videos you posted, I can tell you that the bald, pudgy, bearded guy is definitely NOT the same actor in each. It's just a common look for men.
