John Wood, CBE, (born January 1, 1930) is an English actor. Wood was born in Derbyshire. Known as a stage actor, he has played extensively in Shakespeare, having joined the Royal Shakespeare Company in the 1970s. He has also appeared in many of Tom Stoppard's plays; he won a Tony Award in 1976 for the role of Henry Carr in Stoppard's Travesties, and was nominated for an Olivier Award in 1997 for the role of A. E. Housman - which he originated - in Stoppard's The Invention of Love. He has received two other Tony Award nominations; for the role of Sherlock Holmes in a revival of William Gillette's play, and for the role of Guildenstern in Stoppard's Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead. In 1994 he received much acclaim for his role of Travis Flood in Philip Ridley's controversial play Ghost From a Perfect Place. Wood also has a wide-ranging cinema career, which includes significant roles in WarGames (1983), Ladyhawke (1985), Jumpin' Jack Flash (1986), and Ian McKellen's Richard III (1995), Sabrina (1995), and The Revengers' Comedies (1997), among others.
