TV Baftas 2014: David Bradley wins Best Supporting Actor for Broadchurch
The actor won the accolade for his harrowing portrayal of elderly sea cadet leader Jack Marshall, whose false implication in the drama’s crime leads to a tragic outcome.
The 72-year-old received his Bafta TV to loud cheers and applause from the audience at London’s Theatre Royale.
On receiving the award, he said: “Thank you ITV for commissioning the programme… and to a wonderful cast and crew for such a memorable time, and of course to Chris Chibnall for creating a piece of work that seems to have captured the imagination of so many people.”
He added: “My agent Ruth sent me a replica of this [Bafta figurine] in chocolate, and now finally I can take it down from the mantelpiece and eat it. This is a great honour, thank you very much.”
Bradley’s work in television spans five decades, beginning his career as Colin Woodcock in TV series A Family At War in 1971.
More recently he has appeared in Doctor Who, Game of Thrones and Prisoners Wives.
He is also known for playing Argus Filch in the Harry Potter films.
