Leslie Steven Berks (born 3 August 1937 in Stepney, London), better known as Steven Berkoff, is an English character actor, author, playwright and theatre director of Romanian and Russian Jewish descent.

Selected filmography:


  • Icy Blue Eyes: Just take a good look at the picture.
  • Large Ham: His approach to acting and theatre is...expressive, shall we say.
  • Typecasting: It seems like he used to be the go-to guy whenever you needed a ruthless Russian villain in a movie. His background and looks helped quite a bit.
  • Your Mime Makes It Real: His playwrighting and directing style is highly non-naturalist, and involves the almost complete absence of props. Consequently, while his characters speak, their actions are almost always mimed.
