Bernard Bresslaw (1934-1993) was a British actor who was often typecast in the role of well-meaning dullards thanks to his Cockney accent and his 6'7" height. He's best remembered for performing such parts in the Carry On series of comedy films, where he officially appeared in fourteen installments.

When Hammer went into pre-production for The Curse of Frankenstein, he was on the short list of actors considered for the role of the Monster, but lost out to Christopher Lee. As well as working in film and television, he also regularly performed on stage in Shakespearean productions.
