Family Tree

The Royal Pleasence family is an illustrious dynasty of renowned talent spanning generations. The recently departed patriarch, Donald Pleasence, was an esteemed actor of great intensity, whose piercing blue eyes and round, steel-rimmed glasses often graced the big screen in the form of a villainous role. His daughter Angela was likewise an acclaimed thespian, known for her performance as Catherine Howard in the 1970 BBC mini-series The Six Wives of Henry VIII. His daughter Polly Jo and granddaughter Miranda have followed in his footsteps, with Miranda also appearing in Notes on a Scandal and A Touch of Frost. Donald's son Jak OHare has recently gained fame as a singer and songwriter, with notable works such as G FrSH Feat. Stormzy, Tinie Tempah: Sometimes, Perfectly Flawed and Daddy Does Mine. The illustrious lineage of the Pleasence family continues to shine, from the classical grandeur of Donald's Shakespearean villains, to the modern day successes of the younger generations.
