‘A Clockwork Orange’ Actor Aubrey Morris Dies at 89

LONDON — Actor Aubrey Morris, best known for his role as Mr. Deltoid in Stanley Kubrick’s “A Clockwork Orange,” has died. He was 89.

Morris died Wednesday, his agent told the BBC.

The character actor had a memorable scene in “A Clockwork Orange” in which his probation officer character cautions the protagonist, Alex (played by Malcolm McDowell), about getting into trouble. “I’m warning you, little Alex, being a good friend to you as always, the one man in this sore and sick community who wants to save you from yourself,” Morris says in the scene (below).

The British actor’s other movie credits include Robin Hardy’s horror film “The Wicker Man,” the musical “Lisztomania,” Woody Allen’s comedy “Love and Death” and the dramedy “My Girl 2,” with Dan Aykroyd and Jamie Lee Curtis.

His five-decade long career also included TV work. He made his first TV appearance in the BBC adaptation of “Fly Away Peter” in 1948, after he had appeared in the West End version. His other smallscreen roles include “The Saint,” “The Sweeney,” “The Prisoner” and “The Avengers,” as well as the U.S. shows “Deadwood” and “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia,” in which he made his last appearance.

His made his stage debut in “The Winter’s Tale” at London’s Regent’s Park in 1944. He spent two years at the Old Vic (1954 to 1956) and had roles on Broadway.
