• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

File:Malcolm McDowell 647.jpg

Malcolm McDowell (1943-) is an English actor with a reputation for playing villainous characters, including his Star-Making Role of Alex in A Clockwork Orange, the title role in Caligula, the guy who dropped a bridge on Captain Kirk in Star Trek Generations (and only took the part because the producers let him drop that bridge), Metallo in Superman the Animated Series, and the villain of the Show Within a Show in Bolt.

Non-villainous roles include Major Gresham in Aces High and H. G. Wells in Time After Time. Somewhere in between are Harry Flashman in the film version of Royal Flash and Mr. Roarke in the remake of Fantasy Island.

He made his film debut in If, and his performance in that film led to being cast in A Clockwork Orange.

Works featuring Malcolm McDowell with their own trope pages include:
