Paul Winfield’s Biography


Winfield had a varied career in film, television, theater and dubbing taking over at a time when African-American actors had little specific weight. His first great movie was The Lost Man starring Sidney Poitier.

Filmed during a high point of racial tensions in the United States, the show was unique and included an African-American as the main character. He was also Martin Luther King in 1978 in the King miniseries.

In 1973, Winfield was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Actor for the 1972 film Sounder and his co-star in that film, Cicely Tyson , was nominated for the Award of the Academy for the Best Actress. Prior to their nomination, only two other African-American actors Dorothy Dandridge and Sidney Poitier had been nominated for a major role. He appeared in 2003 in the Disney Sounder remake. Winfield played Jim the slave in Huckleberry Finn (1974) which is a musical based on Mark Twain’s novel. Winfield remembers that, when he was a young actor, he played Of Mice and Men in the local repertoire, composed for someone white, since a black actor was unthinkable to play it. Winfield also starred in miniseries, including Roots: The Next Generations, Queen: The Story of an American Family and Scarlett.
