Biography: Born August 5th 1937, son of Arthur John Howard and Jean Compton Mackenzie. On his mother's side of the family were generations of actors, on his father's, the film star, Leslie Howard. The Howards true surname was Stainer/Steiner, but after Leslie achieved fame and fortune, all took the surname of Howard. Arthur looked very like Leslie and occasionally acted as his stand-in, for example, in the 1938 film of 'Pygmalion', which Leslie was co-directing. Leslie Howard's son, Ronald, also became an actor, mostly in film and TV. Another Howard in the film industry was Arthur's sister, Irene, who became a casting director for M.G.M.

Through his mother's side of the family, the Comptons, professional actors since the early 19th Century, Alan Howard is related to most of the acting dynasties of the theatre. Through his father, Arthur John Steiner (Howard), Alan is related to the British film star Leslie Howard.

Alan Howard has an incredibly illustrious career both on television, strage and screen. As a reward for his hard work and dedication for over fourty years as an actor, Alan was awarded the title of Commander of the British Empire (C.B.E) in 1998.

Movie Notes

Providing the voice of the One Ring
The One Ring


(on films) "If only actors were more powerful they would never get themselves into the ludicrous position where they can be offered a million dollars to play a part they know they can't possibly be worth. Having been out of work for months on end myself I know how difficult it is to resist a tempting offer." - Oxford Mail, 1970

"People come up to you and ask how you're going to play a part........But it's an impossible question. It's like asking someone how they are going to live their life for the next five years. The idea of a smooth, consistent characterisation is rubbish." - The Guardian, 1968
