Biography for Paul McGann Date of Birth 14 November 1959, Liverpool, England, UK Height 5' 8" (1.73 m) Spouse Annie Milner (1992 - present) (separated) 2 children Trivia He is the younger brother of Joe McGann and the elder brother of Mark McGann and Stephen McGann. Became the Official 8th Doctor Who in 1996, which he still continues to play today in Audio Adventures. Was originally cast as the lead in the ITV's "Sharpe" series of television movies but broke his leg playing football a few days into the shooting of Sharpe's Rifles (1993) (TV) in the Ukraine. He was replaced in the role by Sean Bean, who starred not only in Sharpe's Rifles (1993) (TV) but the other thirteen films as well. Bean's replacement of McGann triggered the largest insurance settlement in British television history...a value of £2,128,172. Replaced Sylvester McCoy as "Doctor Who" and, in 2004, it was announced he would be succeeded in the role by Christopher Eccleston. Was considered as a replacement for Michael Praed when Praed left the TV series "Robin of Sherwood" (1984), but lost to Jason Connery. Narrates the audio book versions of several of Bernard Cornwell's "Sharpe's" novels. Involved, along with Sherilyn Fenn, Kate Winslet, Rufus Sewell and Miranda Richardson in the 1998 film project "Johnny Hit and Run Pauline". The film was to be executive produced by Emma Thompson, and written and directed by Fay Efrosini Lellios. The shooting was set to start in June 1998 in New Hampshire. The film was canceled due to financial withdrawal. [1998] Personal Quotes I don't want to be remembered as the George Lazenby of Doctor Who. (Referring to his single performance as "The Doctor" in the 1996 TV movie revival of the British series.) Careers are what they are, they don't make any sense at all when you look back. We're not in charge of them. Where Are They Now (2005) Living in Clifton, Bristol, UK.
