Richard Burton Biography

Richard Burton, CBE (10 November 1925 – 5 August 1984) was a Welsh stage and cinema actor noted for his smooth, flowing baritone voice and his great acting talent. Establishing himself as a formidable Shakespearean actor in the 1950s and the performer of a memorable Hamlet in 1964, Burton was called "the natural successor to Olivier" by critic and dramaturg Kenneth Tynan. Burton's turning his back on the stage disappointed some critics.

Burton was nominated seven times for an Academy Award without ever winning. He was a recipient of BAFTA, Golden Globe and Tony Awards for Best Actor. In the mid-1960s Burton ascended into the ranks of the top box office stars and by the late 1960s, was the highest-paid actor in the world, receiving fees of $1 million or more plus a share of the gross receipts.

Burton remains closely associated in the public consciousness with his second wife, actress Elizabeth Taylor. The couple's turbulent relationship was rarely out of the news.
