He joined the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts in the early 1950s and became known for his English-speaking interpretations of playwright Molière, including The School for Wives, for which he won the Tony Award for Best Performance by a Leading Actor in a Play.

He is survived by Tim MacDonald, his partner since 1986 and husband since 2013.
