Gordon Jackson

From the Ealing Comedies to 70s cop dramas, Gordon Jackson was a pillar of British film and television for many years.

Part of the Ealing Comedies troupe of regular actors, his prolific film career included “Whisky Galore!” with Joan Greenwood & John Gregson, “Meet Mr. Lucifer” with Stanley Holloway, Barbara Murray, Joan Sims, Irene Handl, and Ian Carmichael, and “The Love Lottery” with David Niven & Herbert Lom.

Jackson’s film appearances are wide and varied including “Hell Drivers” with Sean Connery, Patrick McGoohan, Sid James, David McCullum, and Herbert Lom, as well as “The Ipcress File” with Michael Caine, and the Edinburgh-set musical “Let’s Be Happy“.

Gordon Jackson’s credits are peppered with film & TV policemen so it seems only natural that he would be promoted to running his own department with the career-defining role of George Cowley in “The Professionals”.

He played a policeman in “Gideon C.I.D.” with John Gregson, “The Befrienders”, “Death Goes To School”, “Daylight Robbery”, and “Blind Date”.

Gordon Jackson had previously worked with the same production team of “The Professionals” in “The Avengers” episode “Castle De’Ath” in 1965 but was also well-known for classic British film appearances including “The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie” with Maggie Smith, and “Those Magnificent Men In Their Flying Machines” with Terry-Thomas and Tony Hancock.
