"I'm often given parts that aren't as big as they are colorful, but people remember them. When it's a minor or supporting role, you learn to make the most of what you're given. I can make two lines seem like 'Hamlet'."

Denholm Mitchell Elliott CBE (31 May 1922- 6 October 1992) was an English character actor.

He is probably best remembered for his role as Marcus Brody in Raiders of the Lost Ark and Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.
