Brian Blessed (born 9th October 1937) played King Yrcanos in Mindwarp.

A popular UK character actor known for his bombastic, larger-than-life demeanour both on film and in person, Blessed first rose to stardom in the mid-1960s as a long-running cast member on the police drama Z Cars. He later played Porthos in a pair of TV series based upon The Three Musketeers. Other TV roles included Boy Dominic, Space: 1999 (playing the father of Maya, Catherine Schell's character), I, Claudius (with Derek Jacobi), and the first season of Blackadder. In film, his best-known film was the 1980 version of Flash Gordon which also co-starred Timothy Dalton.

Away from the screen, Blessed is known for leading a life of adventure, including several widely publicised attempts to climb Mount Everest (he is reportedly the oldest man to reach as high up the mountain as he has); during preparation for one of his ascents, he met and befriended the Dalai Lama..
