Jeremy Brett (3 November 1933 – 12 September 1995), born Peter Jeremy William Huggins, was an English actor, most famous for his portrayal of Sherlock Holmes in four Granada TV series.
- Holmes is the hardest part I have ever played - harder than Hamlet or Macbeth. Holmes has become the dark side of the moon for me. He is moody and solitary and underneath I am really sociable and gregarious. It has all got too dangerous.
- Terry Manners, The Man Who Became Sherlock Holmes - The Tortured Mind of Jeremy Brett, p. 212. Virgin Publishing Ltd., London, 2001, ISBN 0 7535 0536 3
- Trying to be Sherlock Holmes is like trying to catch an arrow in mid-flight.
