Burn Gorman is one of those actors who turns up everywhere, in all the shows and movies, historical or otherwise. I really enjoy his versatility as an actor, playing tortured characters, heartthrobs, villains, and everything in between. So, today we celebrate his historical film career!
Bleak House (2005)
The costumes in this miniseries are amazing, but I am so not a fan of Dickens so I have never managed to work up the excitement to watch it.
Marple: Ordeal by Innocence (2007)
Framed for a murder he did not commit, Miss Marple has to investigate!
The Curse of Steptoe (2008)
A show-within-a-show about the making of classic British sitcom, Steptoe and Son (1965-1970).
Gorman plays Hindley, Catherine’s shitty brother.
Lark Rise to Candleford: Ep. 4.3 (2011)
Gorman plays Rev. Marley in one episode of this series.
The Hour (2011)
IMDB says this is set in “Cold War England” so I’m just assuming it’s pre-1970.
Jimi: All Is by My Side (2013)
A movie about Jimi Hendrix’s time in England. Gorman plays Michael Jeffrey, Hendrix’s manager.
Walking with the Enemy (2013)
Gorman plays Col. Otto Skorzeny in this WWII film about a Hungarian-Jewish man who masquerades as an SS officer to try to infiltrate the Nazi regime to rescue Jews from the Holocaust.
Another Agatha Christie adaptation about eight people who arrive on an isolated island and then start mysteriously dying one by one.
Gorman plays Holly, the detective sent to investigate the Sharpes.
Kendra paid good money out of her own pocket to watch season one and just couldn’t get behind it. But Burn Gorman does play British Army officer Edmund Hewlett.
We tried to get through this series and couldn’t. All I know is that Gorman plays a bad guy with a secret way further into the show than what we watched.
Burn Gorman plays the assassin sent to dispatch Enola.
