Graeme Malcolm, an actor and prolific audiobook narrator who appeared in more than a half dozen Broadway productions throughout his career, passed away January 10. He was 71.
Born in Dunfermline, Scotland, Mr. Malcolm moved to New York in his late twenties and soon established himself on the Broadway stage as an actor of gravitas, appearing as Sherlock Holmes in Sherlock's Last Case, the Pharaoh in Aida, and Harry Dalton in Equus. Additional Broadway credits included Death and the King's Horseman, the 1996 revival of The King and I, The Real Thing, and Translations, as well as the first national tour of David Henry Hwang's M. Butterfly.
Mr. Malcolm narrated 167 audiobooks over the course of his career, lending his warm brogue to numerous biographies, children's classics, suspenseful thrillers, and more. His final five audiobooks have been released posthumously, including two volumes of Katrine Engberg's Kørner & Werner Series.
He was also a familiar face in charity circuits, working extensively with disabled children charities in Nepal, and providing his vocal talents to Books for the Blind for more than 20 years.
Mr. Malcolm is survived by his daughters Lucy and Annie.
