Looks like we don't have Brian Blessed salary information. Sorry!


#Fact

2He is embarrassed by his guest role in Blakes 7: Cygnus Alpha (1978), as he felt that his performance was too over-the-top.
3He is a teetotaller.
4He befriended Keanu Reeves while filming Much Ado About Nothing (1993) and taught him about meditation.
5Blessed was appointed Officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE) in the 2016 Birthday Honours for services to the arts and charity.
6He was Kenneth Branagh's original choice to play Odin in Thor (2011). The role went to Anthony Hopkins.
7He befriended Katharine Hepburn while filming The Trojan Women (1971).
8He accidentally knocked out Peter Capaldi while filming The History of Tom Jones, a Foundling (1997).
9Blessed is a patron of PHASE Worldwide, which works to improve education, healthcare and livelihoods in remote areas of Nepal.
10He was considered for the role of Governor Ratcliffe in Pocahontas (1995).
11He had a love-hate relationship with Peter O'Toole that lasted for thirty years.
12He was awarded the OBE (Officer of the Order of the British Empire) in the 2016 Queen's Birthday Honours List for his services to the arts and charity in Surrey, England.
13He was forced to leave a touring production of "King Lear" in January 2015 due to heart problems.
14During the 1980s, he was often linked in the UK press to the role of the Doctor in Doctor Who (1963) when the role became vacant.
15He has two roles in common with his Hamlet (1996) co-star Charlton Heston: (1) Heston played King Henry VIII in Crossed Swords (1977) while Blessed played him in The Nearly Complete and Utter History of Everything (1999) and Henry 8.0 (2009) (2) Blessed played Long John Silver in John Silver's Return to Treasure Island (1986) while Heston played him in Treasure Island (1990).
16He has appeared in four films directed by Kenneth Branagh: Henry V (1989), Much Ado About Nothing (1993), Hamlet (1996) and As You Like It (2006).
17He was nominated for the 1981 Olivier Award for 'Best Actor in a Musical' for his stage performance in 'Cats'.
18As a reference to his loud booming voice, York University voted in 2011 to name its newly-built study centre "Brian Blessed Centre for Quiet Study".
19Because of his ever present beard and deep booming voice, he is often confused for actor John Rhys-Davies.
20Patrick Stewart suggested Blessed for the role of Admiral Doughtery in Star Trek: Insurrection (1998), which went to Anthony Zerbe.
21He was considered for many guest roles in Doctor Who (1963): Grugger in "Meglos", Login in "Full Circle", Richard Mace in "The Visitation", Captain Stanley in "Time Flight", Ranulf in "The King's Demons", Vorshak in "Warriors of the Deep", Lytton in "Resurrection of the Daleks", Russell in "Attack of the Cybermen", The Governor in "Vengeance on Varos", Shockeye in "The Two Doctors", Merdeen in "The Trial of a Time Lord: The Mysterious Planet" and Sabalom Glitz in "The Trial of a Time Lord". He would eventually play Lord Ycranos in "The Trial of a Time Lord: Mindwarp". He was also going to make a cameo as his Z Cars (1962) role PC Fancy Smith in Doctor Who: The Feast of Steven (1965), but this was vetoed by the producers. He was originally cast as Odin in Doctor Who: The Girl Who Died (2015), but had to drop out due to illness.
22Was considered for the role of Dr. Bukovsky in the science fiction horror film Lifeforce (1985), which went to Michael Gothard.
23Has completed Cosmonaut training and is first reserve to travel to the International Space Station. He plans to travel there in 2014.
24Is the oldest person to have reached both the geographical North Pole and the magnetic North Pole.
25At age 14, he attended the Second World Peace Congress held in Sheffield during November 1950, where he encountered Pablo Picasso, challenging him to draw something. The artist penned a dove of peace, which the young Blessed scorned before sketching a similar bird himself and presenting it to an amused Picasso. Blessed would not accept Picasso's offer of his picture, thereby unwittingly earning his father's wrath.
26Has been close friends with Patrick Stewart since childhood.
27He and Nick Brimble appeared together in the Space: 1999 (1975) episode Space: 1999: The Metamorph (1976), many years before appearing together in Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves (1991).
28Has starred opposite his real-life wife Hildegard Neil in King Lear (1999) (which he also directed) and the short film Mr. Bojagi (2009).
29Frequently gives up his time to appear at fan conventions for different series in which he has appeared.
30His younger brother Alan, seven years his junior, died in 1996 at age 52.
31As a child, he and his friends used to play at "Flash Gordon", inspired by the Buster Crabbe serial films. In these childhood games, Brian would always play "Vultan", leader of the Hawkmen. In the cult science fiction film Flash Gordon (1980), he played the same role as he had in childhood.
32Attempted to climb Mount Everest three times.
33In Flash Gordon (1980), his character, Prince Vultan, says "Who wants to live forever?" during the battle between the Hawkmen and Ming's Imperial Fleet. This later became the title of a Queen song on the soundtrack for Highlander (1986).
34Was nearly killed when filming his death scene in Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves (1991).
35Father of Rosalind Blessed.

#Quote
1Women are my religion. 90 per cent of men have always bored the derriere off me as people.
2[on Doctor Who (2005)] I think they need to re-examine his surname - 'Who' is very oriental. It's about time they had an Asian actor as the Doctor. And a female one.
3After I was in Z Cars (1962), the head of BBC serials took me aside and said, 'We're thinking of having a young Doctor Who (1963) and we'd like to cast you'. But it clashed with other things.
4[on Doctor Who (1963) in 1995] Like all the kind of traditional programmes on the BBC from the past, it is timeless and I do hope it comes back.
5[on William Shakespeare] The blue planet has had its author. It would be greedy to want another.

1His magnificent beard
2Often plays larger-than-life characters
3Booming operatic voice
