      British actor (b. July 9, 1935, Manchester, Eng.—d. Jan. 11, 2001, Outwood, Surrey, Eng.), was a respected stage, television, and radio actor, as well as a noted Shakespearean, but he was best known for the roles he played opposite his more-famous wife of 30 years, Dame Judi Dench, notably in the TV sitcom A Fine Romance (1980–82) and in the West End plays Pack of Lies (1983) and Mr. and Mrs. Nobody (1986). His last stage performance was in the National Theatre's 1999 production of The Forest, for which he received an Olivier Award nomination. In November 2000 Williams was granted a papal knighthood for contributions to the Roman Catholic faith in Britain.
