Biography

Tooting, London, England, UK
George Cole OBE is a veteran British film, television and stage actor whose impressive career has spanned over 60 years. For many, he will perhaps be best remembered for playing one of the most endearing characters of recent times on British television, "Arthur Daley", the shifty but very likable "business man" in the hit ITV drama series, Minder (1979).
