Jeremy Brett’s Biography

Jeremy Brett was born in Berkswell, in the county of Warwickshire, from a family of noble origins, descended from the Lord Lieutenant of Warwickshire. In his youth he had to abandon his traditional studies because of a serious form of dyslexia, but this did not prevent him from attending the Central School Speech and Drama in London. The debut as a professional actor took place in 1954 at the Library Theater in Manchester. In 1956 he debuted at the Old Vic in a play by Shakespeare, Troilo and Cressida, which opened the doors of the Shekespearean theater, up to Broadway to represent the Richard III and the Royal National Theater in the company of Laurence Olivier, where he played in Merchant of Venice in the role of Bassanio alongside Olivier himself (Shylock) and Joan Plowright (Porzia).

In 1967, film producers Harry Saltzman and Albert R. Broccoli thought of Brett as a substitute for Sean Connery for the new James Bond movie, Agent 007 – Her Majesty’s Secret Service, but then the choice fell on the Australian actor George Lazenby, and also for the next film, Vivi and let it die (1973), he was auditioned, but the role of Bond went to Roger Moore. On the big screen, however, Brett participated in several major films, such as War and Peace (1956) and My Fair Lady (1964), alongside Rex Harrison and Audrey Hepburn. For the small screen to quote the role of D’Artagnan in a television adaptation of the novel The Three Musketeers (1966), and the role of Danilo in another television adaptation of the operetta La vedova allegra (1968).

In 1958 he married actress Anna Massey, daughter of the Canadian actor Raymond Massey, from whom in 1959 he had a son, David Huggins, who became a well known cartoonist, illustrator and English novelist. They divorced in 1962 and curiously worked together for the first time, several years after the separation, in 1979, for BBC Television, in the remake of Alfred Hitchcock’s film, Rebecca, the first wife. Later, in 1991, Brett worked with actor Daniel Massey, Anna’s brother, in an episode of the television series The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, The Enigma of Thor Bridge, for Granada Television.

Brett’s second wife, Joan Sullivan Wilson, died of cancer on July 4, 1985, shortly after the actor had finished shooting Holmes’ death in the episode The Final Problem. This event shook Brett to the point that the shooting of the third series Granada, The Return of Sherlock Holmes, suffered a sharp slowdown. On the set he became increasingly obsessive about Holmes’ interpretation and his excessive mood swings became worse and more frequent. Affected by bipolar disorder (manic-depressive psychosis), in 1986 he was admitted to a psychiatric clinic.

Also suffering from heart problems (his heart was twice the normal size), Brett had difficulty breathing and on the set needed an oxygen mask. “But, my dear, the show must go on,” was his only comment. The functionality of his heart valves had been marked by rheumatic fever contracted since childhood. He died in 1995, at the age of 61, at his London residence in Clapham, for heart failure. At that time he was busy shooting the latest television series The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes, which were suspended. In the penultimate episode of the series aired, The Stone of Mazarin, Brett appeared only in a cameo, replaced in investigations by Charles Gray in the role of Mycroft, brother of Sherlock.

On September 12, 2015, on the twentieth anniversary of Brett’s death, a celebration was held in the Clapham Common park in London. Many fans were present, as well as David Burke, actor who played Watson in the series The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes. On the bench dedicated to Brett, on which among other things there is also a plaque, roses were placed and a commemorative speech was held.
