Nigel Planer

Actor, comedian, novelist and playwright

Nigel Planer (London, 1953) is particularly well known for his role as Neil, “the hippy” in the British sitcom The Young Ones (Els joves in the Catalan production). Originally broadcast by the BBC between 1982 and 1984, it became a cult series in Great Britain and also in Catalonia where TV3 showed the series for the first time in 1985, dubbed into Catalan. Those two seasons about the lives of four university students who are sharing a house marked a whole generation. Planer has also appeared in numerous musicals in London’s West End, including Evita, Chicago, We Will Rock You and Hairspray.
