Warren Clarke (26th April 1947 - 12th November 2014) was a prolific British actor who was best known to television audiences as gruff police detective Andy Dalziel in the BBC series Dalziel and Pascoe, a role he played from 1996 to 2007. He played four different roles on Coronation Street:
- Barry in 1965
- Kenny Pickup in 1966
- Student Tim Jordan in 1968
- Elsie Tanner's nephew Gary Bailey, also in 1968.
Just a few weeks before the first of these roles, he appeared in an episode of the Street spin-off Pardon the Expression, a series in which he made two appearances in two different roles in the following year.
Afterwards Warren had a large part in the controversial 1971 Stanley Kubrick film A Clockwork Orange, and went on to appear in The Onedin Line, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, Minder and Blackadder the Third.
