Film Zulu Dawn quote: “Excuse me, my Lord, there's something I must convey to you. I rode along the track down to Rorke's Drift. The sky above is red with fire. Your orders my Lord? Do we move to the drift?”

Ronald Lacey (28 September 1935 – 15 May 1991) (Portrayed Norris Newman.)
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]]Added By Admin.
Lacey attended Harrow Weald Grammar School and after a brief stint of national service and the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art he began his acting career in 1961 in a TV play The Secret Agent. His first notable performance was at The Royal Court in 1962's Chips with Everything. Lacey had an unusual pug look with beady eyes and cherub's cheeks, which landed him repeatedly in bizarre roles on both stage and screen.

Lacey performed on British television throughout the 1960s and 1970s, with roles spanning from a part in Kenneth Clark's Civilisation television series, as the gravedigger, in a reenactment of the gravedigger scene from Hamlet, with Ian Richardson as Hamlet and Patrick Stewart as Horatio, to a memorable turn as Harris in the sitcom Porridge, with the latter finally landing him in the role for which his unusual physical characteristics could be repeatedly used to full advantage.Disappointed with his acting career by the late 1970s, he began to consider starting a talent agency. Spielberg then cast him as the Nazi villain Toht in Raiders of the Lost Ark. He followed this with a series of various villain roles for the next five to six years: Sahara with Brooke Shields, and 1985's Red Sonja with Arnold Schwarzenegger, in addition to 1982's Firefox with Clint Eastwood, in which he played a scientist helping the West behind the iron curtain.

Lacey turned in two cinematic performances in full drag: Disney's Trenchcoat with Margot Kidder from 1982 and Invitation to the Wedding from 1985 – in which he played a husband/wife couple.

Lacey played a number of villainous roles and was known for his trademark smile, which would turn into a gleaming malicious leer. He also had a rather large mole on his left cheek, which he chose not to have removed. In 1982's Trenchcoat, he used the mole as a beauty mark in his role as Princess Aida, a mysterious and sleazy drag queen on the island of Malta.

Lacey was born in Harrow, London. He was known for his generosity and warmth to fans but equally known in the London Theatre scene for having a great fondness for drinking and smoking. Often the actor was noted among the gossip pages. His hobby was collecting Victoriana.

Lacey was twice married. Originally wed to actress Mela White, he became the father of two children, the actors Rebecca and Jonathan Lacey in the 1960s. After a turbulent divorce, he remarried in 1972. Joanna Baker, his second wife, gave birth to his third child, Matthew. His daughter, Rebecca, became a television success on the BBC series Casualty. His son Matthew is the godson of Hammer Films' Barbara Shelley.
Being of Welsh descent, he owned a family cottage in Wales which was passed on to his three children after his death. The family would spend their holidays together at the cottage.

He had his lower intestines removed in his early twenties and as a result had to have a colostomy bag fitted. Over the years he was refused certain film roles in other countries at his doctor's request. He gained and lost weight over the last 10 years of his life, as he was ill with cancer. He occasionally looked bloated and swollen as a result of medical treatment. He finally succumbed to the cancer when it spread to his liver.
Lacey died in London of liver failure on 15 May 1991. At the time, he was under the care of his daughter, Rebecca (from his first marriage). Ian Bartholomew sang "Sometimes When We Touch" at Lacey's memorial service which took place at St. James in Covent Garden almost three months after his death in 1991. He also left behind two sons by his second marriage: David and Matthew.
