LONDON (AP) The British actor Donald Sinden has died at his home in Kent, England, of prostate cancer, his son says. He was 90.

Marc Sinden said his father's varied career kept him so busy that he was only unemployed for five weeks in the period from 1942 to 2008.

Sinden was known as a tremendously versatile actor who excelled at everything from Shakespeare's King Lear to TV sitcoms such as "Two's Company" and "Never the Twain."

His rich, deep voice was his calling card in many successful productions, starting with his work on stage when he entertained troops during World War II.

He received a knighthood in 1997 in recognition of his contribution to the arts.

He is survived by a brother, his son, four grandchildren and a great-grandchild.
