Actor JOHN BARRON

John Barron
Born 24th December 1920 - Died July 2004 (83) 

John Barron was a character actor best known for his portrayal of CJ, the maniacal head of Sunshine Desserts in the highly successful television series BBC TV Series The Fall and Rise of Reginald Perrin.

Screened between 1976 and 1979 it’s main star was Leonard Rossiter as a mentally exhausted sales executive who fakes his own suicide. CJ, Reggie's boss, is a master of the mixed metaphor and the meaningless cliche, his professional wisdom being encapsulated in the frequent line: "I didn't get where I am today by . . ." Barron, who played the role superbly, once remarked: "CJ was the perfect gift for an actor because he was so appalling."

John Barron was born at Marylebone, London, on Christmas Eve 1920. Among the schools he attended was Portsmouth Grammar, but he later said: "My education was not very good. I was always moving schools."

He trained at Rada, thanks to a godfather who volunteered to pay the fees, before working in repertory at Croydon, Leicester and Brighton. After the end of the Second World War, during which he served as a lieutenant in the Navy, Barron gained early experience of acting for television when a series of plays was televised live from the Intimate Theatre, at Palmers Green, near Alexandra Palace. He also appeared in the West End, and directed in repertory.

In the early 1950’s Barron performed studio drama for the BBC; these were the days in which a "repeat" meant merely that the play was filmed live on Sunday, and once again on Thursday. This early grounding proved invaluable, and throughout his career Barron was never off the small screen for long.

He made early television appearances in Fly Away Peter, Emergency-Ward 10 and (as the Dean) in All Gas and Gaiters, before he made an impression as Assistant Chief Constable Gilbert, the co-ordinator of the Crime Squad in Softly, Softly.

There were further good performances in Doomwatch, Crown Court, Timeslip, Ace of Wands and The Foundation before he won popularity playing alongside Arthur Lowe in Potter, which was based on anecdotes about an intolerant retiree and his friendship with Barron's eccentric local vicar.

Comedy was Barron's forte, and he went on to appear in Bernie; Spooner's Patch; Shelley; The Glums; The Wizard of Crum; Yes, Minister; and To the Manor Born. He was also seen in The Gentle Touch; Cowboys; Whoops, Apocalypse; No Place Like Home; and Me and My Girl.

He appeared in television productions of The Taming of the Shrew and Othello, and continued to take parts on the West End stage.

Barron's excursions into the cinema were less frequent; but he had parts in Sink the Bismarck!, To Catch a King, The Day the Earth Caught Fire, Thirteen at Dinner, Jigsaw and The Great Question.

In 1980-81, during the war between Iraq and Iran, he was among a group of British actors persuaded to make a film in Iraq by the authorities in that country. The Great Question was about an Iraqi revolt against British rule in the 1920s.

The actors arrived by aeroplane, which had to fly without lights into an unlit airport - a precaution against attack by missiles. Barron, who played General Haldane, commander-in-chief of the British troops, recalled noon temperatures of more than 100 degrees and freezing nights huddled around open fires.

The rebels were played by Iraqi soldiers, and Barron remembered one scene being cancelled because the soldiers were ordered to the front to counter an Iranian assault. The film, which lasted several hours, was never shown outside Iraq.

For four years Barron was president of Equity. His interest in the actors' union was kindled in the 1970s, when he was playing a judge in the television series Crown Court. After he had spoken for the first time at an Equity meeting, a young man jeered at him: "There's more to acting than doing a Crown Court and belonging to the Garrick Club!"

Barron recalled: "I thought, 'Oh dear, oh dear. If that's the attitude of our younger actors, then it's a pity.' And I started to take an interest in Equity affairs."

In 1996 he returned as CJ in The Legacy of Reginald Perrin, which failed to replicate the success of the earlier series.

John Barron's first wife, the actress Joan Peart, died in 1989. His second wife, the actress Helen Christie, died in 1995. He is survived by a stepdaughter from each marriage.

Remembering Reggie: "I came into it because I was up in Granada-land, working for Granada Television doing ‘Crown Court’…suddenly a parcel arrived from the BBC…it was a hardback novel of "...Reginald Perrin". John Howard–Davies [the producer of the pilot episode] had attached a note saying “Read this. Would you like to play ‘C.J.’?” So I started to read it, and it got better…and better…and better…and better. And I closed the last page and reached for the phone almost before I’d put the book down, and said ‘YES!’"

"I like to think I helped [Leonard] through the early days of his career. People used to ask me how it was we worked so well together - what they didn't know was that we'd known each other for twenty years before "...Perrin"."

"Middle-aged parents kept coming up to me saying: "You ruined my life because my child wouldn't stop saying 'I didn't get where I am today without...'"

"I think my affection for C J was for a rather cruel reason: he was the most intolerant man I'd ever met!"

"Playing CJ has been the highlight of my television career."

 John Barron Obituary

A past president of Equity, John Barron enjoyed a 60-year career on stage and television. Tall, booming and generally cast in eccentric roles, he was best known to TV viewers for his role as “I didn’t get where I am today...” CJ, the tyrannical head of Sunshine Desserts in David Nobbs’ successful comedy The Fall and Rise of Reginald Perrin.

The role was Barron’s favourite and made him a household name. “CJ was the perfect gift for an actor,” he remarked, “quite simply because he was so appalling”. The series, which starred Leonard Rossiter in the title role, ran from 1976-9 and was sold to America and Europe as well as regularly topping the ratings in Britain.

John Barron was born in London on December 24, 1920, the son of an actress and a naval officer. He studied acting at RADA in 1938 and served in the Royal Navy during the Second World War. On demobilisation he worked in repertory at Croydon, Leicester and Brighton.

He appeared in several West End productions and gained early experience of television appearing in plays televised live from the Intimate Theatre at Palmers Green, north London.

He first came to television viewers’ attention in Emergency Ward 10, Glencannon and All Gas and Gaiters, before playing the warped scientist Devereaux in the sci-fi serial Timeslip, the Minister in Doomwatch and the Vicar in Potter. He also appeared in several television classic dramas including productions of Othello and The Taming of the Shrew.

From 1972-6 Barron was a fixture in Granada TV’s afternoon courtroom drama Crown Court. It was while filming an episode of the series that he was invited to play the role of CJ in The Fall and Rise of Reginald Perrin. In 1996 he reprised the role of CJ in the BBC’s ill fated The Legacy of Reginald Perrin. He also appeared as the Deacon in the cult series Whoops Apocalypse (1982).

Among his numerous film credits were Sink the Bismarck!, The Day the Earth Caught Fire, Thirteen For Dinner and Jigsaw.

A member of the Garrick Club, Barron died on July 3, aged 83. His first wife, the actress Joan Peart, died in 1989 after 40 years of marriage. He married, secondly, the actress Helen Christie. She died in 1995. He is survived by a stepdaughter of each marriage.
