Actor and singer Timothy James Curry was born in Grappenhall, Cheshire, England, on April 19, 1946.
He went to the prestigious Kingswood School in Bath, Somerset, and earned a BA in English and drama from the University of Birmingham in 1968. In the 1975 film The Rocky Horror Picture Show, Curry played the role of Dr. Frank-N-Furter, which catapulted him to fame.
His voice acting roles range from Captain Hook on Peter Pan & the Pirates to Hexxus in FernGully: The Last Rainforest to Sir Nigel Thornberry in The Wild Thornberrys to Palpatine in Star Wars: The Clone Wars, for which he won a Daytime Emmy Award.
Curry is a singer who has put out three rock albums (Read My Lips, Fearless, and Simplicity).
Is Tim Curry Still Alive or Dead?
After suffering a stroke in July 2012, Tim Curry has been confined to a wheelchair. He is still around, but he has retired from the stage in favor of voiceover work. He reprised his Rocky Horror Picture Show role in 2020 to benefit Joe Biden’s campaign by selling audio recordings of his narration.
Will We See Tim Curry In Any Upcoming Films Or Television Shows?
Despite his health problems, Curry has kept up a steady stream of roles that have kept audiences enthralled. Thankfully, these roles aren’t nearly as terrifying as his turn in Criminal Minds. Next year, Curry will lend his voice to the demon Necrofer the Death Bringer in the upcoming dark fantasy animated film Dagon: Troll World Chronicles.
There is currently no official release date for the film, but it is expected to debut in 2022. While he has no live-action roles coming up, Tim Curry is still making appearances at fan conventions like Monsterpalooza this weekend.
Even though Curry has spent the last decade rehabilitating with physical and speech therapy, he has voiced video games and cartoons and even returned to the stage to sing hits from his illustrious career, so fans may see a return to form from the “Sweet Transvestite” himself if his health continues to improve.
Still today, Tim Curry is regarded as one of the entertainment industry’s most gifted, beloved, and mysterious actors. He seems determined to repay the favor his fans showed him in 2012 by constantly thanking them and expressing his appreciation. Curry, committed to his art and his long-term health, keeps performing and filming despite his current situation.
