​From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Patrick Magee (31 March 1922 – 14 August 1982) was a Northern Irish actor best known for his collaborations with Samuel Beckett and Harold Pinter, as well as his appearances in horror films and in Stanley Kubrick's films A Clockwork Orange and Barry Lyndon.

  • Although he worked memorably with Stanley Kubrick on two occasions, he had, like many other actors, a rather edgy relationship with the director. He once told an interviewer that Kubrick's direction of him consisted almost entirely of three sentences - "Do it faster", "Do it slower" and "Do it again". He added that the last of these was by far the most frequently-employed.
  • Magee had a reputation as a heavy drinker, which may have caused his premature death from a heart attack at 60.
  • Won Broadway's 1966 Tony Award as Best Supporting or Featured Actor (Dramatic) for playing the Marquis de Sade in Peter Weiss' "Marat/Sade," a performance recreated in the film version of the same title, Marat/Sade (1967).
  • When beginning his stage career, Patrick McGee chose to alter his surname to Magee. It's unclear why he chose to do this, although there have been reports that there was another actor named Patrick McGee, and that Magee wanted to avoid confusion.
  • Appeared in many TV, radio and stage productions of the works of Samuel Beckett.
  • Attended St. Patrick's Roman Catholic College in County Armagh, Northern Ireland.
  • He and his wife Belle (who, like Magee, was also from Armagh, Northern Island), had twins in London in February 1961. Their son was named Mark and their daughter Caroline.
  • He has appeared in three films that were nominated for the Best Picture Oscar: Mechanický pomeranč (1971), Barry Lyndon (1975) and Chariots of Fire (1981), with the latter being a winner in the category.
