Biography from Leonard Maltin's Movie Encyclopedia:

A burly, thoroughly masculine actor who came to prominence during the "angry young man" phase of British screen drama, he's best known in America for playing director Paul Mazursky's Ideal Male in 1978's An Unmarried Woman While he generally plays solid, decent types, he's been quite effective in menacing roles too, as evidenced by his work in The Shout (1978). Bates played uncle to Mel Gibson's Hamlet in Franco Zeffirelli's 1990 film of Shakespeare's play. Bates was nominated for a Best Actor Academy Award for his work in The Fixer (1968), but he's probably still best known for his nude wrestling match with Oliver Reed in Women in Love (1969).
