He made his breakthrough screen performance in Terry Gilliam's 1985 cult film Brazil.Critically lauded for his versatility, Pryce has participated in big-budget films such as Evita, Tomorrow Never Dies, Pirates of the Caribbean and The New World, GI Joe: The Rise of Cobra, GI Joe: Retaliation as well as independent films such as Glengarry Glen Ross and Carrington.

1When I left school, I wanted to be an artist, specifically a painter.
2I know people whose entire lives are ruined by fame. If you make yourself exclusive, people want to break that down, but if you go about doing your shopping, no one bugs you.
3I live a very ordinary life. The rare awards ceremonies I go to are quite fun, because I can enjoy the irony of one minute walking to the tube, and the next being driven along the same stretch of road in a limo.
4I grew up in the 1950s at the beginning of rock n' roll, and would strum a tennis racket in front of the mirror.
5I have just enough public appreciation to make me happy.
6I'll read a book every now and then, but unlike most of my friends I don't always have one on the go.
7Oddly enough, I'm not religious but I'm also very fond of St Peter's in Rome. When I'm there, I always know there's a good meal not far away.
8The older you get, the more you find yourself looking for things you used to see and liked when you were younger.
9'I'm not a star, I'm an actor - there's a difference!'
1Was considered for the role of Arthur Parker in Pennies from Heaven (1978).
2Considered for the roles of Caine, Dr.Armstong, Bukovsky and Roger Derebridge in Lifeforce (1985).
3According to the Michael Palin diaries, Pryce was seen for a role in Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981).
4Starred in Harold Pinter's "The Caretaker" at the Everyman in Liverpool. [October 2009]
5Started a stint as conman Lawrence Jameson in the hit Broadway Musical "Dirty Rotten Scoundrels" playing at the Imperial Theater in NYC [January 2006]

7Starred as Professor Henry Higgins in Trevor Nunn's production of "My Fair Lady", which began at the National Theatre and has since moved to the Drury Lane Theatre in London. [2001]
8Camden Town, London, England [June 2009]
9Starred in Broadway's "Dirty Rotten Scoundrels" with Norbert Leo Butz. [2006]
10Reprised his role as Zarniwoop (and a new character, Vann Harl) in the new "Quandary Phase" episodes of "The Hitch Hiker's Guide To The Galaxy" BBC4 radio series, adapted from book 4 of the late Douglas Adams' "Hitch Hiker's Trilogy", "So Long, And Thanks For All The Fish". [May 2005]
11Starred as Martin in Edward Albee's controversial play "The Goat or Who is Sylvia?" at the Apollo Theatre in London's West End. [April 2004]
12He was awarded the CBE (Commander of the Order of the British Empire) in the 2009 Queen's Birthday Honours List for his services to Drama.
13Awarded an honorary doctorate by The University of Liverpool on 12th December 2006 in recognition of his contribution to the acting arts on stage and screen.
14He won a 1980 Laurence Olivier Award for his depiction of Hamlet, a performance made famous by his also playing the role of Hamlet's father's ghost as a regurgitated voice.
15Pryce was at the center of a racially-charged controversy regarding his role in the mid-1980s musical Miss Saigon. He played 'The Engineer', a half-French Caucasian/half-Vietnamese Asian pimp, in the original London cast, but when producer Cameron Mackintosh wanted to transfer the UK cast to the original Broadway opening, the US performers' union Actors' Equity objected on the grounds that Pryce, a Welsh Caucasian, should not have been allowed to play an Asian person. Their arguments against Pryce's casting were that a White person playing an Asian one amounted to minstrelsy, denied already-scarce roles to Asian actors, and was an "affront to the Asian community." In response, Mackintosh canceled the Broadway production (despite having sold advance tickets), so Actor's Equity reversed its decision on a technicality in their bylaws that exempts producers from having to audition domestic actors for a transplanted production if the original star is deemed famous enough. The policies regarding racial casting issues that Actor's Equity set in place in response to this incident still govern Broadway casting as of 2006.
16Won two Tony Awards: in 1977 as Best Actor (Featured Role - Play) for "Comedians" and in 1991 for Best Actor (Musical) for "Miss Saigon".
17He appeared in most of Nissan's luxury car division in America, Infiniti's television ads in the mid-1990s.
18Was the artistic director of the Liverpool Everyman, during the seventies.
19Alumni of the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (RADA).
20Became an Associate Member of RADA.
21Performed in plays for the Royal Shakespeare Company, in the period 1978 to 1987.
22Children: Patrick (b. 1983), Gabriel Pryce (b. 1986) and Phoebe Pryce (b. 1990).
23He was nominated for a 2002 Laurence Olivier Theatre Award for Best Actor in a Musical of 2001 for his performance in "My Fair Lady" at the Royal National Theatre: Lyttelton and then later at the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane.
24He was awarded the Laurence Olivier Theatre Award in 1990 (1989 season) for Best Actor in a Musical for "Miss Saigon".
25Originated the role of 'The Engineer' in the musical "Miss Saigon".
26Pryce was one of the stars of Dark Blood (2012), along with Judy Davis and River Phoenix, but the movie was never released due to Phoenix's death during filming in 1993.
