Richard Vernon

Sir Richard Vernon (March 7, 1925 - December 4, 1997) was a British actor. He appeared in many feature films and television programmes, often in aristocratic roles (for example as Lord Bartelsham in the Ripping Yarns episode Roger of the Raj and, in a serious mode, as Squire Dale in the BBC radio 4 adaptation of The Small House at Allington). He is also remembered for his part as the planetary designer Slartibartfast in the BBC radio and TV series Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, as Sir James Greenley (C) in The Sandbaggers, and as the occasional character Sir Desmond Glazebrook in the TV series Yes, Minister and Yes, Prime Minister.
