Surrey-born character actor Paul John Geoffrey was raised and educated in England. He began his screen career in 1977 and first appeared on the professional stage the following year at the Haymarket Theatre Royal, London, as John Daly in a revival of N.C. Hunter's play Waters of the Moon. Described as 'a thespian to the core' with a sound appreciation of history, Geoffrey specialized in classical roles early on and became known for his many performances in literary adaptations and period drama, including as Sir Perceval in Excalibur (1981), Tarzan's biological father Lord John 'Jack' Clayton in Greystoke: The Legend of Tarzan, Lord of the Apes (1984), Vronsky's close friend Petritsky in Anna Karenina (1985), Murat in Napoleon and Josephine: A Love Story (1987) and (as Mr. Lockwood) in Wuthering Heights (1992), headlining Juliette Binoche and Ralph Fiennes. Geoffrey's first wife was London-born actress Belinda Sinclair, a niece of the well-known film director Nicolas Roeg. When this union ended in divorce, he remarried in the U.S. and moved there in 1991, settling in Santa Fe, New Mexico. There, he forged a successful career as a real estate broker and as director of a fashionable contemporary art gallery, while continuing to make occasional guest appearances in TV series like Better Call Saul (2015) and Get Shorty (2017).
