Derrick O'Connor Movies and Career Information
Nov 30, -0001
Derrick O'Connor (born 1941) is an Irish character actor, mostly known for his roles in Terry Gilliam films. He was a member of the Royal Shakespeare Company. Terry Gilliam, who has directed O'Connor on three films, has noted in his audio commentaries that Derrick seems to have a habit of taking away most of his dialogue in favor of physical character humor. Notable examples include Time Bandits, in which his characters' dialogue was resorted to simple grunts while the Maid Marian character "translated" for him and in Brazil, in which Derrick scrapped all of his character's dialogue and simply repeated the dialogue of Bob Hoskins' character.
