London — British actor Warren Clarke, known for his role in the TV drama Dalziel and Pascoe and many other parts, has died. He was 67.

The Independent Talent Group said in a statement that Clarke died on Wednesday after a brief illness.

Clarke had a long, varied career, performing on the popular British soap Coronation Street in the late 1960s and as an ultraviolent "droog" in Stanley Kubrick's provocative A Clockwork Orange.

He was prominent on television for many years as gruff Det. Supt. Andy Dalziel in the Dalziel and Pascoe series that ran for 12 years.

Clarke had remained active. The last role he had finished was in a BBC revival of the 1970s drama Poldark.
