Hayward B. Morse trained at RADA and, after working with regional theatres, made his London debut in the original production of What the Butler Saw (Queen’s Theatre). He remained in the West End for the musicals Canterbury Tales and the original production of The Rocky Horror Show (King’s Road Theatre) and received a Tony Award nomination for his performance in Butley (Morosco Theatre) on Broadway.

He subsequently played in seasons with Canada’s Shaw and Shakespeare festivals, the films Tam Lynn, Agency and Death Wish 3, an English tour of Travels With My Aunt and at The English Theatres of Hamburg and Frankfurt. More recent UK work includes several Shaw plays at Shaw’s house in Ayot St. Lawrence, Sherlock Holmes in an open-air version of The Hound of the Baskervilles, leading roles in London productions of Molière’s The School for Wives, Kyd’s The Spanish Tragedy and five plays at the Finborough Theatre. Lately he has been seen on television in Footballers’ Wives, James May’s Manlab and as the title role in Autopsy: the Last Hours of Lou Reed. He has also recorded over a hundred unabridged audiobooks.
