Creator / Bill Nighy

William 'Bill' Nighy (born 12th December 1949) is a former British stage actor who made the transition to film in 1989's Eye of the Needle. He is easily recognized thanks to his tall, slight frame and distinctive voice.

Nighy is probably most famous for playing Davy Jones in Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest and Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End and Rufus Scrimgeour in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1. He is also known as Philip in Shaun of the Dead and Viktor in the Underworld film series.

Not to be confused with the Science Guy.

Notable Roles

Tropes associated with him include:

  • Character Tics: He often points and gestures with his middle finger instead of his index.
  • Fingore: Downplayed; He has Dupuytren's Contracture, a condition that causes the fingers (in his case the pinky and ring) to become permanently bent inward.
  • Large Ham: Often and with much gusto.
