Bernard Frederic Bemrose Kay (23 February 1928 – 25 December 2014) was an English actor with an extensive theatre, television, and film repertoire.

He appeared in hundreds of TV productions including Emmerdale Farm, The Champions, The Cellar and the Almond Tree, Clayhanger, A Very British Coup, Casualty, Casualty 1909, Doctors, Z-Cars, Coronation Street, Jonathan Creek, Foyle's War and London's Burning in 1989.

He also portrayed a mutant in the Space: 1999 episode "A Matter of Balance" - although hard to recognise under his make-up, his distinctive voice gives him away.

He portrayed Captain Stanley Lord of the SS Californian in the BBC dramatisation Trial by Inquiry: Titanic in 1967. In 1978 Kay appeared as the underworld crime boss Harry Scott in an episode of the hard-hitting British police drama The Professionals, the episode entitled When the Heat Cools Off.;[4] the bandit leader Cordova in the Zorro television episode "Alejandro Rides Again" in 1991 which was filmed in Madrid, Spain. Kay also gave a sympathetic performance as Korporal Hartwig in an early episode of Colditz.

He appeared four times in the Doctor Who series in various roles, most notably as Saladin in the classic Doctor Who story The Crusade in 1965. He also appeared in the serials The Dalek Invasion of Earth (1964), The Faceless Ones (1967) and Colony in Space (1971). In 2006, he guest-starred in the Doctor Who audio adventure Night Thoughts.

His best-known film appearance was his turn as a Bolshevik leader in Doctor Zhivago (1965). (He commuted between Madrid and London to play Saladin during this stint.)
