Brian first came to attention in the early 1970s with performances in numerous television films but his first big break was as Dr. Hannibal Lecter in Michael Mann’s Manhunter (1986).

Brian had this to say about the Norwich Film Festival “Increasingly Film Festivals acquire greater and greater status due to the ever diminishing distribution opportunities for films of rare and original visions. Film Festivals such as this maintain film as an art form”
The Norwich Film Festival would like to thank Brian for his support and kindness and for agreeing to be one of the festival’s patron’s.
