Biography from Leonard Maltin's Movie Encyclopedia:

Phenomenally talented British actor who has appeared in a myriad of chameleonlike film roles since his memorable Oscar-nominated performance as running coach Sam Mussabini in Chariots of Fire (1981). Holm studied at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art and spent 14 seasons with the Royal Shakespeare Company (touring with Laurence Olivier in the 1957 production of "Titus Andronicus") before coming to the New York stage. After winning a Tony on Broadway for "The Homecoming," he made his film debut in The Fixer (1968), then won a British Oscar for The Bofors Gun (1968). He has been memorable in the film adaptation of The Homecoming (1973, reprising his stage role), Alien (1979, as the android Ash),Time Ban- dits (1981, as Napoleon), Greystoke: The Legend of Tarzan, Lord of the Apes (1984), Dreamchild (as Reverend Charles Dodgson), Brazil, Wetherby (all 1985), Another Woman (1988), and Naked Lunch (1991), as well as two very different Shakespearean adaptations: Kenneth Branagh's revisionist Henry V (1989, as Fluellen) and Franco Zeffirelli's Hamlet (1990, as Polonius). In 1993, he appeared in The Hour of the Pig and in 1994, Mary Shelley's Frankensteinfor Branagh.
