Before he was launched by Hammer, Cushing appeared with Creator/LaurelAndHardy in ''A Chump at Oxford'' and played the small part of Osric in Creator/LaurenceOlivier's 1948 film of ''Film/{{Hamlet}}'', as well as several notable roles in television, including Winston Smith in the 1954 adaptation of ''Literature/NineteenEightyFour'' and Darcy in the 1952 adaptation of ''Literature/PrideAndPrejudice''. He returned to television several times after his film career took off, starring as Lije Bailey in a 1964 adaptation of Creator/IsaacAsimov's ''Literature/TheCavesOfSteel'' and Franchise/SherlockHolmes in the 1968 TV series. He also appeared several times with Creator/MorecambeAndWise, complaining that he hadn't been paid for the first time.

Cushing was often a RealLife/MeanCharacterNiceActor, in that he often played characters who were either very driven or villanous, but Cushing in RealLife was a very kindly gentleman who was [[HappilyMarried devoted to his wife]] and friends. When she died, he was so distraught that he tried to kill himself by running up and down the stairs in a fit of depression, knowing that he had a heart condition. Near the end of his life, he was given a surprise by Creator/JimmySavile on his show ''Jim'll Fix It'' -- a breed of rose was named after his late wife. It caused him to burst into tears on camera. Creator/CarrieFisher recalled that she could not generate the level of hatred that Princess Leia would have been feeling towards Grand Moff Tarkin, because Fisher had to deliver those lines to Cushing, particularly the line about "recognizing [his] foul stench" when Cushing smelled pleasantly of lavender.
