Brian Blessed (October 9, 1937) is a British actor. Blessed, notorious for his large red beard, played the similarly red-bearded Farmer Giles.

Blessed broke through as Police Constable Smith in long-running police series Z-Cars, and after that, most of his roles were influenced by his imposing appearance and voice. He appeared in I, Claudius, served as a narrator at Jackanory, played King Richard IV in Blackadder, and many other iconic performances.
