BiographyMelbourne, Victoria, Australia
Born in Melbourne, Australia, Joss Ambler was a character actor who played usually small parts in British B - and occasionally A movies ('The Citadel', 'The Half Way House', 'The Captain's Paradise'...). Serious-looking, mustached and bespectacled he more often than once found himself in the shoes of no-nonsense characters such as police inspectors, officers or chiefs, doctors, managers, judges, auctioneers and teachers.

The couple lived happily in London but had no children. Read more... died too early, in 1959.
