Tony Jay (born February 2, 1933 in London, England – August 13, 2006 in Los Angeles, California) was an English actor and singer.
A former member of the Royal Shakespeare Company, Jay's distinctive deep voice and tall, gaunt looks often landed him villain roles in both live and voice-over roles.
Television audiences often recognize him as the disfigured villain Paracelsus in the series Beauty and the Beast (opposite Ron Perlman, Linda Hamilton and Roy Dotrice), and as Nigel St. John, Lex Luthor's right-hand man on Lois & Clark.
Two of his most prominent voice-over roles include the virus Megabyte in the CGI animated series ReBoot, as well as Judge Claude Frollo, the main antagonist of Disney's The Hunchback of Notre Dame.
A devoted fan of classic Broadway shows, Jay recorded an album of himself speaking lyrics from classic shows by George Gershwin, Noel Coward, and Oscar Hammerstein.
Jay passed away in Los Angeles, after complications from surgery to remove a non-cancerous tumor from his lung. He is buried in the Forest Lawn Cemetery in the Hollywood Hills.
