Godfrey Quigley (4 May 1923 – 7 September 1994) was an Irish film, television and stage actor.
Quigley was born in Jerusalem, where his father was serving as an officer in the British Army. The family returned to Ireland in the 1930s and, following military service in the Second World War, Quigley trained as an actor at the Abbey School of Acting.
In 1949, Quigley made his first film appearance, in Saints and Sinners. He appeared in two Stanley Kubrick films: first as the prison chaplain in A Clockwork Orange (1971), and then as Captain Grogan in Barry Lyndon (1975). In British television, he played a has-been gangster in the serial Big Breadwinner Hog (1969). His theatre roles include the Irishman in Tom Murphy's The Gigli Concert, for which he won the Harvey's Best Actor Award in 1984.
In the 1950s, Quigley co-founded the Globe Theatre Company , whose members included his wife, Genevieve Lyons. The company was disestablished in 1960. During the same period, he produced the radio soap opera The Kennedys of Castleross.
Quigley died in Dublin of Alzheimer's disease, aged 71.
