In the early years of his career, Mr. Williamson was heralded as one of the greatest British talents of his generations, an equal to his contemporary Albert Finney. Playwright John Osborne once described him as "the greatest actor since Marlon Brando."
Mr. Williamson won international acclaim playing a self-hating lawyer in Osborne's Inadmissable Evidence. When he performed the role on Broadway in 1966, he won a Tony nomination for his work, as well as a New York Drama Critics Circle Award. He was nominated for another Tony for his Uncle Vanya in 1974.
His other Broadway credits include I Hate Hamlet and The Real Thing.
