John Herbert Sharp ((1920-08-05)5 August 1920 – (1992-11-26)26 November 1992) was a British actor who made numerous appearances on television during a career spanning 42 years.[1]


Sharp made more than 130 appearances in television and occasionally films between 1949 and 1991.[1] Although active in theatre, Sharp began as a film actor in 1949 and appeared in films throughout the 1950s.[2][3] By the mid 1960s he mostly appeared in British television on popular shows of the era such as The Avengers "Murdersville" episode, the Randall and Hopkirk (Deceased) episode "The Ghost Who Saved the Bank at Monte Carlo"; The Prisoner, Not On Your Nellie opposite Hylda Baker, Z-Cars, and in 1976 in The Sweeney episode "On the Run" in which he played Uncle, a homosexual retired Magistrate who becomes embroiled in the escape of a psychopathic prisoner having befriended the prisoner's former accomplice.[4] He performed in Charles Dickens TV adaptations in the 1980s.[5] In 1991, he made his last television appearance in the programme Lovejoy.[6] He played the role of the "apparently cynical" Uncle Will in Luigi Comencini's 1966 Incompreso.[7]

Sharp's most notable television appearances in a recurring role was on the All Creatures Great and Small television series, in which he portrayed Ezra Biggins, an aged, parsimonious and awkward Yorkshire dairy farmer.[8] "John Sharp was just like you see him," recalled Peter Davison, who played Tristan Farnon in the series. "He was a wonderful raconteur and would tell you these long stories."[9] Christopher Timothy, who played the leading role of James Herriot, added: "I found myself getting quite moved when I watched an episode recently, not because of what we were doing, but because all those lovely people are no longer with us. John Sharp was a lovely, lovely man."[9]
