Biography

British actor Julian Bleach specialized in roles of an otherworldly nature, and thus maintained a particularly strong presence in the fantasy and science fiction and horror genres. One of the many co-founders of the multimedia-driven theatrical revue christened Shockheaded Peter (which combined music, puppetry, pantomime, and other forms for a series of surrealist visual displays), Bleach began to land high-profile big-screen work in the mid-2000s, starting with roles in a pair of adult-oriented fantasy films: Terry Gilliam's The Brothers Grimm (2005, as Letorc) and Tarsem Singh's The Fall (2006, as a mystic). Bleach also portrayed Frankenstein's monster in ITV's 2007 revisionist production of Mary Shelley's seminal horror novel. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
