About Edward Fox:
British actor Edward Fox, older brother of James Fox and Robert Fox, spent the first few years of his career in the shadow of his longer-established younger sibling. But, all this changed when Edward was cast as the charismatic but cold-blooded international assassin "The Jackal" in The Day of the Jackal (1973). Fox's character was so determined to go through with his assignment to kill Charles De Gaulle that at times the audience believed he was actually going to get away with it!

Fox has proven himself a dynamic character player, busy throughout the 1980s in such films as The Dresser (1983), Return from the River Kwai (1989), The Shooting Party (1985), Wild Geese II (1985) and, of course, he was cast as M in the James Bond film Never Say Never Again (1983), with Sean Connery.

In recent years he has appeared in films as diverse as Lost in Space (1998), The Importance Of Being Earnest (2002) and Nicholas Nickleby (2002).

In 2002, Edward Fox was awarded an OBE by Queen Elisabeth II.
