Kenneth Cranham (born on December 12, 1944 in Dunfermline, Fife, Scotland) is a film, television and stage actor who has appeared in Layer Cake, Gangster No. 1, Rome, Oliver! and many other films. He is best known to genre fans as the deranged Dr. Philip Channard, aka the Channard Cenobite from Hellbound: Hellraiser II.

His many stage credits include West End productions of Entertaining Mr Sloane, Loot, An Inspector Calls, (both transferring to Broadway), The Ruffian on the Stair, The Birthday Party and Gaslight (at the Old Vic).

Kenneth Cranham's husky, distinctive voice is especially expressive. The timbre has both deeper and higher pitched overtones and his accent is Northern, so "classless", but carries no obvious local dialect. Being imbued with a quality of pathos, trustworthiness, familiarity and yearning, it makes him a popular choice for BBC radio plays and broadcast poetry readings, and audio projects and voice overs, such as the narrator of the 2006 BBC radio adaptation of the Epic of Gilgamesh.
