Early life

Ingham was born in 1932 in Halifax, West Riding of Yorkshire to Irene (née Bolton) and Harold Ellis Stead Ingham. He was educated at Heath Grammar School and became a Royal Artillery officer.

Acting career

Ingham made his debut in Manchester with the Library Theatre Company, and then he moved to London's Old Vic. He also performed with the Royal Shakespeare Company, Mermaid Theatre Company and Royal National Theatre.

Ingham featured in over 200 British and American films and TV productions, including the lead in A Challenge for Robin Hood (1967). After playing Sejanus in Granada TV's The Caesars (1968), he had a short spell as an ambitious government minister in The Power Game in 1969. In 1971, he took the leading role in the series Hine, as an unscrupulous arms dealer. Sir John Gielgud gave him his Broadway debut and he subsequently played in many Broadway musicals, including Copperfield on Broadway, and opposite Angela Lansbury in the London production of Gypsy: A Musical Fable in 1973. When the production transferred to Broadway, Barrie did not stay with the show. He also appeared as King Pellinore in the 1981-82 revival of Camelot to critical acclaim. In 1986, he voiced Basil of Baker Street, the lead character of Disney's The Great Mouse Detective.

In 1991-92, he appeared in the final cast of Andrew Lloyd Webber's Aspects of Love, opposite Sarah Brightman on Broadway. His last Broadway outing was in the Broadway musical Jekyll & Hyde as Sir Danvers Carew. Ingham opened the show in 1997 and subsequently stayed for the next four years until the show closed in January 2001. He was also seen, as was the final Broadway cast, in the 2001 filmed version of the musical.

Ingham also acted in Australia, such as Noël Coward's Private Lives, in Sydney in 1976. He made a guest appearance on Star Trek: The Next Generation (in the 1989 episode "Up the Long Ladder").


Ingham died, 18 days shy of his 83rd birthday, at his home in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. He was survived by his wife, Tarne Phillips Ingham, and four children.
