Before Fame

After training at London's Webber Douglas Academy of Dramatic Art, he began his London West End stage career in a production of Shout for Life.

Biography Timeline


After graduating from the prestigious Webber Douglas Academy of Dramatic Art, he made his West End debut in 1963 with the comedy Shout for Life at The Vaudeville Theatre. Several successful West End roles followed.


In 1973, Treacher appeared in a British television commercial for the Austin Allegro motor car. In 1983, he later appeared in another British television commercial this time for Colgate toothpaste where he played a grocer. In 1984, he was a Beefeater in the Tower of London to Paul Hogan's tourist in a British television commercial for Foster's_Lager.


In late 1984, Treacher was the first actor to be cast in the BBC soap opera EastEnders, appearing in the first episode on 19 February 1985 as Arthur Fowler, a role he played for the next 11 years. In fact the co-creators, Tony Holland and Julia Smith, had scripted the character with Treacher in mind. Treacher admitted in 2015 that he was initially reluctant to sign up for the show as it meant long hours and a sizeable commute to his family home in Suffolk but that he relented due to the chance of a steady income. He received much critical acclaim for the role, especially for his portrayal of his character's mental decline and subsequent nervous breakdown. The character also endured a succession of misfortunes, which included two short spells in prison, a persistent struggle with unemployment, his daughter Michelle's pregnancy at the age of 16, his son Mark's diagnosis with HIV, and a midlife crisis where he had an affair which almost broke up his marriage.


By 1995, Treacher had requested to be written out of the series, stating "By the time I finished, even the sound of the theme music was making me feel ill. I felt depressed." He also stated in a 2003 BBC documentary interviewing past stars of the show that he was forced to leave with advancing age and the stress of such a gruelling schedule working the long hours on the show was affecting his health and that the doctors told him that if he didn't leave the job soon and relax it would kill him.


Bill appeared in the episode 'Selected Target' in the 1970's Police drama series The Sweeney. In 2006, Treacher had a guest-starring role in the ITV police drama The Bill. He also appeared as a security guard in an episode of Casualty in December 2007.


Treacher is married to the Australian actress Katherine Kessey and they have two children: Jamie, also an actor, and Sophie, a production assistant. They live in Suffolk. In 2015, Treacher told the press that he is suffering from ataxia, a degenerative disease that hinders balance and the ability to walk. Treacher said as a result he had fully retired: "I'm not doing any work now. I can't bloody well walk."
