ACTOR Aubrey Morris, known for roles in films including A Clockwork Orange and The Wicker Man, has died. “Sleepwalkers” Director Mick Garris, who worked with Morris on the NBC TV show “The Others”, paid tribute to the Morris on his Facebook page: Garris describe Morris as an fantastic gentleman, and brought originality and enthusiasm to his brief roles.
After studying at Portsmouth Municipal College, Morris won a Leverhulme scholarship to study at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in London. By the late ’50s he was landing regular roles on TV, and broke into film soon after.
But it was his portrayal of the sniveling probation office to Malcolm McDowell’s Alex in Stanley Kubrick’s 1971 classic “A Clockwork Orange” that will stand as his most beloved and famous role.
British actor Aubrey Morris passed away on Wednesday, at the age of 89 according to a Thursday, July 16 EW report. The character actor had roles in lighter fare as well, such as Woody Allen’s 1975 comedy Love and Death and dramedy My Girl 2 with Dan Aykroyd and Jamie Lee Curtis. His agent confirmed the news to the site. He also appeared in an episode of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia this year, as the former psychiatrist of Frank Reynolds, played by Danny Devito.
According to The Guardian, Morris was “delighted still to be working”.
Our thoughts are with Aubrey’s family and friends at this hard time.
