Actor. Known for his stage work, he will perhaps be best remembered for his origination of Max in Harold Pinter's play "The Homecoming" (1967). He received a Tony Award for his performance. The son of a headmaster, he was trained as a performer at the Michael Chekhov Theatre Studio, prior to making his professional debut "A Bird's Eye View of Valour" in 1938. Following the outbreak of World War II, he served with the Royal Navy and upon his return home he began his association with the Old Vic Theatre. He established himself as a versatile performer and interpreter of Shakespeare. He marked his Broadway debut with "King Richard III" (1956 to 1957) and continued his Shakespearean roles in the classic revivals "Romeo and Juliet" (1956 to 1957) and "Macbeth" (1956 to 1957). He earned his first Tony Award nomination with "Photo Finish" (1963). During the course of his career, Rogers had numerous film roles among them "The Trials of Oscar Wilde" (1960), "The Shoes of the Fisherman" (1968) and "Three Into Two Won't Go" (1969). He repeated his role of Max in the 1973 film adaptation of "The Homecoming". In addition, Rogers had a lengthy list of credits on British television before retiring from acting during the late 1990s. He received his final Tony Award nomination with "The Dresser" (1981 to 1982). (bio by: C.S.)
